Now, the index accumulates high of 7.44% in the year and 9.13% in 12 months. In July 2021, the IGP-DI had risen 1.45% and accumulated a 33.35% increase in 12 months.

“The declines seen in the prices of major commodities – iron ore (from -1.63% to -12.94%), soybean (from -0.81% to -2.27%) and corn (from -3, 30% to -4.98%) – explain the deceleration of producer inflation, which closed down by 0.32%”, said André Braz, coordinator of FGV’s price indices.
