  • Wood, insulation materials, chemicals and plastics (18.38%)
  • Electromechanical products (12.33%)
  • Minerals (5.20%) including Cements (9.22%)
  • Mineral products (4.52%)

The Cyprus Statistical Service notes that prices of materials used in construction are collected on a monthly basis based on a sample of products and suppliers. The reference date for the prices collected is the 15th of each month. Prices are valued excluding VAT. The data collection is carried out by telephone, fax or e-mail.
