– We are preparing a request for help, because construction material prices are rising every day and the construction sector is on its kneesthe old glory is behind us – several representatives of companies from that sector told Beti.

The owner of the Šehovići warehouse in Obrenovac, Ilija Jovićić, said that they change the prices throughout the day and that more and more often the same amount of goods cannot be bought for money from the sold material with a margin.

Goods are getting more expensive almost every week, everything has become more expensive. Last year, the building block cost 19 dinars in wholesale at this time, now it is 33 dinars, a ton of iron has risen from 550 EUR to 1,100 EUR – said Jovicic.

He points out that it is becoming increasingly difficult to buy construction materials in domestic factories, because they most likely increased exports due to the growth in demand for those goods on the world market.

According to him, the demand for construction materials is not falling yet because the construction works are being completed for fear that the material would become more expensive every day, but less and less new construction is being started.

The construction market of Serbia is small and sensitive and will not be able to function under the current conditions for a long time, so at some point it will too high prices of construction materials and fuels completely stop the demand and business of the construction sectorbelieves Jovicic.
