Question Raw Material Pricing Trends

I am completing a case study that requires me to justify if an April 2010 10% increase in pump maintenance and repair parts was justified. The supplier has locations in Jamaica, Suriname, and Texas, which is where our locations are. The parts are made of cast iron, hi-chrome iron, ductile iron, stainless steel, and nickel. Does anyone know where I can find these pricing trends?

I have researched the PPI, but would like to know if there are better sources available for this. The PPI was challenging to use, because these raw materials are lumped toghether and I do not know what percentage each raw material makes up of the parts. Does anyone know if there are free separate pricing trends for each of these products? Additionally, are there different sources for each country listed above or can the PPI be used for each?

I appreciate any insight anyone can offer.

Thank you in advance.
