Mumbai, Nov 22, 2021: With the economy at large bouncing back to normalcy and revival in consumer sentiment, construction activities have renewed with increased vigour across Tier-I cities, leading to a high-demand for construction materials, as per the latest JD Mart Consumer Insights.

Searches for dealers for sand, MS (Mild Steel) pipe, and ready-mix concrete have been on the rise across Tier-I cities with Chennai seeing maximum demand for all materials on JD Mart,  a B2B marketplace by Just Dial.

Speaking on this trend, a JD Mart spokesperson said, “We are in the phase that typically sees maximum house construction activities. While demand in Tier-I cities have risen, searches in Tier-II cities have also witnessed marginal growth, largely remaining stable. This trend not only hints at economic recovery across the country at large but also clearly indicates positive consumer confidence along with renewed vigour in the construction space. “
