And since the beginning of 2022, it has increased 6 times, the total increase to 2.4 million VND/ton, increasing from 16.5 million to 17 million VND/ton to about 19 million VND/ton.

Construction contractors are very worried when building materials increase continuously

Intermediaries, agents for the works said they also do not want to increase the price, but the companies that have announced the increase they must increase.

It is worth mentioning that the prices of other materials such as sand, bricks and stones have also increased by 10-20% since the beginning of the year. For example, the price of sand for installation ranges from 170 – 190,000 VND/m2, building sand is 400 – 470,000 VND/m2. Tiles 1,300 – 1,400 VND/piece. Ceramic tiles increased by about 50,000 VND/ton, to 250,000 VND/m2…

The contractors also said that almost no products in the construction work did not increase from plastic pipes and copper pipes to other types such as floor boards, industrial wood, wood-plastic panels for flooring, which increased by 45,000 VND/m2. to 185,000 VND/m2; laminate flooring increased by 50,000 VND/m2, to 350,000 VND/m2…

Steel suppliers in the market said that the price increase to the market could not be compared with the increase in production materials. Specifically, raw materials such as coke and iron ore have also increased rapidly in recent times. World ore price has increased from 120 USD to 150 USD/ton. Going back to Vietnam still has to pay more.

The price of coal has also increased sharply to 600 USD/ton, up from 30-35% compared to the beginning of the year. The forecast is likely to increase to 700 USD/ton. Steel prices on the Shanghai trading floor on March 18 for delivery in May 2022 also increased by 34 yuan (to 4,938 yuan per ton), calculated to increase the price by about 6 USD/ton.

The director of a construction company lamented: The continuous increase in the price of raw materials as well as the price of gasoline has pushed up the transportation fee, so the suppliers will naturally increase the price. While they have signed a contract with the owner, the landlord should not be able to increase the price, so the risk of loss or little profit is very large in 2022 if the price does not cool down.
