Hungarians buy more bricks; construction boost anticipated
In the first few months of the year Hungarians have purchased a record number of bricks, Aladár Kató, the president of the Hungarian Brick Association (Mátész), told Hungarian daily Magyar Idők today.
The association noted that construction material manufacturers have been prepared for the increasing demand so no lack of products can be expected. The president added that steps by the Hungarian government to encourage home buildings could have a beneficial effect on the construction industry.
The president added that he expects a slight price increase on the market of building materials driven by increasing demand, according to Magyar Idők.
In its report from last week, Hungary’s Central Statistical Office (KSH) noted that the volume of Hungaryʼs construction output was down 20.1% in January as compared to the same month a year earlier.
