“The construction sector, like the rest of the sectors of the economy, is being affected by international economic factors, which add up to those of the State and the country,” said last month Roberto Macías, President of the Mexicana de la Industria de la Construcción, delegación Nuevo León (CMIC).
He added that an increase in the price of inputs normally impacts the final costs of construction, as well as the final prices of projects, so inflation is one of the factors that affect the weak behavior of the sector.
The expert Guillermo Godínez, pointed out that “the materials for the construction have registered increases by the end of the inflation bringing them to double their values.” De acuerdo con datos acquisitos, hoy en día, construir o edificar un bien inmueble cuesta el doble comparato con el aumento de la inflation”.

“This percentage represents an increment of a little more than double to 7.65 percent that reports the general inflation of May in our country”, highlighted Godínez.
Despite this weak performance, the entity’s construction sector was the second one that contributed the most to the national segment, accounting for 10.7 percent of the total, surpassed only by Tabasco, which accounted for 19 percent.
“There is no doubt that the construction of the Dos Bocas refinery is the factor that is driving the sector in a significant way in Tabasco, which has allowed it to lead this segment at the national level in the last few months,” he said.
Analysts have pointed out that the low investment in infrastructure projects and the private sector has influenced poor construction performance, both at the national level and at the state level.
