Cement Sees Solid Sales Surge

In the construction material market, demand for cement is increasing rapidly in Yangon, according to construction material sellers in the city.
In particular, Thai brands Elephant and Diamond cement are selling the best in the city, which is seeing a surge in properties being built as the country continues to attract increased interest, and therefore visitors, from the international community.
Local brands have also seen a surge in sales, according to sellers.
“In the present market, not only the larger Thai brands are selling well, but local brands have seen a boost too,” said U Than Tun from Sawbwargyigone construction material market.
Brands from Vietnam are performing well too, with Double Ace, Rhino, Flying Horse and Horse Head, which are generally cheaper than their Thai rivals in Yangon’s market.
“More people prefer cheaper products,” Daw Khing Khing from Thapyay Nyo Construction Materials shop told Myanmar Business Today. “They generally prefer a fair price with medium quality,” she added.
