Italian term or phrase: fuori mercato
Dovrebbe continuare a crescere l’impatto delle delocalizzazioni produttive (production delocation/relocation), che rivestono sempre maggiore importanza nell’ambito di tutte quelle produzioni a non elevato valore aggiunto, i cui costi risultano ormai fuori mercato nel caso di produzione domestica.

overpriced


Explanation:
my understanding is that "fuori mercato" means "too expensive" in this context, so the sense would be that these prices are prohibitive for domestic production.

away from the market


Explanation:
Per completare il quadro ed inserire l'espressione nel glossario.
It is "away from the market" in reference to the stock market, according to many financial glossaries, see for example
http://tradition.axone.ch/ViewTerm.cfm?TID=4256
adj. (EN) Expression used when the bid on a limit order is lower or the offer price is higher than the current market price for the security.

It could be that the expression migrated from the stock market and is used in other economic/financial contexts.
