Sujon Enterprise activity generated a significant increase in the demand for basic building materials such as cement, steel, sand, bricks, timber, bamboo and CI sheets. A number of these materials are imported or produced locally on the basis of imported inputs. Other materials are produced in Bangladesh from local resources (bricks, sand, aggregates, timber and bamboo).
With these products, there tend to be short-term constraints to the expansion of supply. The brick industry in particular has proved to be amazingly flexible in its response to changes in demand.
