Cement market in Ukraine saw a 10% increase in the first half of 2016. According to Yuriy Schyrin, director of the Agency of Industrial Marketing, producers expect no smaller figures for the second half of the year. This optimism provides us with the grounds to forecast growth of the construction market in general.
The largest increase is observed in the western regions of the country. In particular, the Lviv region has shown a record increase, which has been transforming into a systematic trend, according to market experts.
The reason for that is the fact that there is a demand for positive expectations from the part of investors and producers in Ukraine today. The Lviv region is considered as the most stable, with under-average rates of corruption and generally being a pioneer to adopt changes around Ukraine.
