The “February 2023 Sector Report” prepared by the Association of Construction Material Producers (Turkey IMSAD) has been announced.

According to the report, industrial production of construction materials decreased by 3.4 percent in the last quarter compared to the last quarter of last year.

The construction sector, on the other hand, grew by 2.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the same period of the previous year, ending the decrease experienced in the last 5 quarters.

Despite the weakening in other sectors, the growth experienced in the construction sector was mainly driven by the base effect. However, it was stated that the fragilities in the dynamics of the recovery, which is taking place to a limited extent, continue.

Production, which decreased in all months of the third quarter and decreased by 3.3 percent, contracted by 3.4 percent in the fourth quarter of the year. The contraction observed in the second half of the year was caused by a slowdown in external demand.
