How to use the inflation calculator

Our inflation calculator determines the future price of products and your future purchasing power. All you have to do is enter the following data:

  • Choose your original amount which should be used to calculate inflation
  • Declare the inflation rate in percent (maximum 30%)
  • Choose the period in which inflation should be considered (maximum 100 years)


Inflation is an economic phenomenon in which there is a general increase in the prices of goods and services while the purchasing power of money decreases. This means that money becomes worth less, as fewer goods and services can be bought for the same amount of money.

Inflation occurs when there is more money in circulation than goods and services are available. When there is too much money competing for the limited amount of goods and services, prices go up. This can be caused by various factors such as higher demand for goods and services, rising production costs, a devaluation of the currency or a more accommodative monetary policy on the part of the central bank.

When inflation occurs, cash loses purchasing power as the prices of goods and services rise. In other words, the same money becomes worth less and can buy less. For example, if you have 100 euro and inflation is 5%, you can only buy 95 euro worth of goods and services at the end of the year. You can test other scenarios with our inflation calculator.

The "Future Price" result field shows you the price of any product based on the selected original amount over the selected number of years.

Future purchasing power refers to the amount of goods and services that can be purchased with your original amount in the future.
