The costs of construction
Labor and materials are the main components of construction costs in Thailand, with construction materials taking the highest proportion of costs followed by labor. The price of construction materials has risen in recent years in Thailand, increasing costs for businesses in the industry. Despite this increase, there is still potential for the construction industry to counter these costs, specifically in Bangkok, from increasing demand of condominiums. In the first half of 2019 alone, Bangkok had more than 27 thousand of new condominiums.
