The wolf to Ukraine has a noticeable impact on the Czech construction industry. It is currently suffering from health input raw materials, energy and transport, as well as health and lack of materials. It caused an increase in the prices of building materials. There is no shortage of workers. The emergency forces companies in the construction industry to look for new ways to at least replace the missing materials.
The prices of construction materials have been rising for a long time due to the coronavirus pandemic, the main conflict in Ukraine has increased. Some commodities between the two countries have increased. The wolf had a great influence on the scarcity and high value of steel. A sharp decrease in gas may have an effect on the price of raw materials, such as cobblestones, bricks and so on.
The long-term shortage of female workers in labor professions has worsened with the conflict in Ukraine. Even when Ukrainians working in the Czech Republic did not leave en masse, those who were in Ukraine during the conflict could not move due to mobilization. Construction companies have other problems in the completed state.
Due to the overall situation, there are 30% fewer new buildings. Due to the increase in the prices of materials and the lack of construction capacities, the construction of finished buildings will be stopped, which gives S. You are slowing down and getting more expensive. The rise in energy and fuel prices is reflected in the prices of construction materials. The price of energy constitutes a substantial investment in the production of basic building materials. However, steel products are currently the most popular.
The construction segment is currently facing a critical shortage of iron. The main reason is the lack of iron ore from Ukraine. Therefore, more and more construction companies looked for a suitable alternative. The lack of iron in the construction industry is being replaced by new materials, such as, for example, composites suitable for reinforcing concrete. It is a product based on epoxy resin, reinforced with glass fibers.
In the current complicated international situation, when it is not entirely clear whether and when the situation will return to normal, alternative materials should always receive attention. For example, GFRP-reinforced concrete is now a very good alternative to reinforced concrete, which is now in short supply, according to Mat Jaremko, CEO of Tesla Fiberox.
Due to expensive energy and other growing investments, the price of glass is increasing, which is so important for the construction industry. Compared to the arrest in 2021, the number is almost half that. This complicates the situation for many manufacturers. Since then, the glass has grown by approx. 45%. And that’s for us at the entrance. When it comes to supplies for the construction industry, the first place to go is to Lucie Hronov, editor of the Czech company Amirro, specializing in glass and mirror products.
