In 2018 the market volume of sandwich panels reached 2.3 million m2, as reported by the Rauta director Andriy Ozeychuk during a speech at the VII National conference of steel construction market participants.
In the presentation Andriy Ozeychuk showed non-residential real estate market analysis and main trends of the envelope structures for commercial construction in Ukraine.
The Rauta director noted that about 56% of sandwich panels market is occupied by Ukrainian products. At the same time, out of 1.5 million m2 of steel claddings, a trapezoid profile accounts for 98% of sales.
Noting the market trends, Andriy Ozeychuk mentioned: “Construction costs account for about 1/6 of the total costs throughout the entire life cycle of a building, so today customers are investing in energy-efficient facade solutions such as ventilated claddings and sandwich panels with enhanced energy efficiency.”
