Wholesale Price Index (WPI)

WPI measures changes in wholesale prices of goods. Calculated as a weighted average of three components: domestic wholesale prices, export wholesale prices and import wholesale prices. WPI is considered a better inflation indicator than CPI, because it directly reflects the state of the business sector. The indicator is taken into account by the market.
