Alitinform №1 (66) 2022 г. 2-12 p.
The purpose of this analytical paper is an objective assessment of the real impact of prices on building materials and on the growth of construction costs in the Russian Federation, we look at the contribution of cement and the cement industry to construction costs.
To achieve the effect, any decision should be based on objective data, cleared of informational noise, statements of interested parties, on a systematic approach and analysis of the current situation.
For reference, Fig. 1 provides general information about the cement industry of the Russian Federation, as well as shows all cement producers in the Russian Federation and neighboring countries. It is very important for commercial services, managers and owners of the construction business to study this information, since transportation costs can be 50 percent or more in the final cost of cement for the consumer. We plan to dwell on this issue in as much detail as possible in our next articles. It is also important to know about existing cement producers so that, if possible, the buyer can refuse the services of intermediaries, whose share in the cost of cement can also constitute a double-digit figure.
The actual changes in cement prices over the last decade are shown in Fig. 2. It is important to note here that the average annual growth was 2.7 %. It is an economically unreasonably low figure, taking into account the cost of all resources that affect the cost of cement for the consumer. The change in the average industry return on sales over these years averaged 5 % (Fig. 3). At such values, sustainable innovative development of the industry is impossible.
