Cost of Building Materials in Nigeria

Construction costs have not gone up significantly in the past few months. Comparing the current prices of building materials and the cost of building materials in Nigeria as at November 2016, we find that, in the main, prices have remained unchanged. This is contrary to the commonly held belief that ‘prices are going up’ because of the adverse economic situation in the country. The prices of building materials have remained unchanged in spite of the naira appreciating in value at the foreign exchange market.

This has remained so because traders bought goods when the exchange rate of the dollar was one dollar to over N500, some even bought when it was N520 to a dollar. Although the naira is appreciating in value against international currencies, traders would not sell the building materials below the cost price as they have to make some gain too. The cost of building materials in Nigeria is not expected to drop immediately until traders sell off their old stocks which they bought when the naira had low value.
