BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 14. The dynamic rise in
prices for building materials in Azerbaijan has stopped in recent
days, real estate expert Ramil Osmanli told Trend.
“Price growth for many building materials has stabilized
compared to the beginning of the year. Meanwhile, prices for boards
and plywood increased slightly. Over the past year and a half,
prices for building materials have more than doubled,” Osmanli
“The price for a cube of wood is 470 manat ($276.4). Prices for
plywood increased by two manat ($1.18) due to events in Ukraine,
since it’s mainly imported from this country,” he noted.
The expert also noted that with the beginning of the
construction season, the cost of a cube of timber may increase by
20 manat ($11.8) or 25 manat ($14.7) due to wildfires in Ukraine
“This leads to a decrease in timber imports to our country and
to growth of the prices,” added Osmanli.
