AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
The state of the Russian economy and construction complex is analyzed. The trend towards reduction of investments in the fixed capital that entails a reduction in the volume of construction works and new housing supply is noted. It is shown that relatively high indicators of new housing supply in 2014 and the first half of 2015 are explained by the completion of construction of objects started in previous years. By the results of 2015, the new housing supply reduced by 0.5% in comparison with 2014 and was 83.8 mil. m2 . The influence of mortgage lending, as a source of financing the housing construction, is considered. As a result of the slowdown in construction, a significant decline in production of basic types of building materials – 92.2% compared to 2014 is fixed that significantly worse than in the whole manufacturing industry (94.6%). In 2016 it is predicted that the decline in production of the building materials industry will be by 5–7%. And in case of realization of the pessimistic scenario of the Russian economy development, it will be by 12–15%.
