- Since last year the use of masonry mortars for thin joints increased (by 20 p.p.) at the cost of traditional masonry mortars for thick joints (a drop of 18 p.p.), which as a result fell to the second place in the ranking.
Market commentary by expert
We have carried out our market survey for the third time, covering several hundred small and medium contractors from the sector of construction chemicals. We have divided them according to five construction work categories they specialise in: tile adhesives, masonry mortars, thermal insulation systems, floor creeds and thick-coat plasters. In each of the groups we have conducted over a hundred interviews, which revealed clear trends. The market of construction chemicals is influenced primarily by the condition of the housing sector, which in turn depends heavily on legal changes. In recent years governmental plans related to housing have been changing rather frequently, which has and indirect impact on our forecasts for construction chemicals.
