What will the DIY market be like in 2022?

The key market players will discuss this at the 10th Anniversary of DIY Forum at MosBuild 2022

The pricing strategies of manufacturers, suppliers, and retail chains are the key issue of 2022 on the Russian DIY market. After the explosive increase in the price of building materials and repair goods in 2021, how do companies plan to shape their pricing policy? Which product segments will be most in-demand? How will consumers respond and how do retail chains plan to retain their customers? These and many other questions will be answered by the participants in the 10th Anniversary DIY Forum "Building and Finishing Materials Market and DIY Trade — A New Era and a New Reality"*, which will be held on 29 March at MosBuild 2022. 

*The Forum program is under development, please follow our announcements

The Forum is organised by the International Exhibition of Building and Finishing Materials MosBuild and INFOLine information and analytical agency.

“The end of March is the ideal moment to hold the biggest event in the DIY market.  We are summing up the results of the past year and are announcing plans and development programmes for the coming year together with the largest companies on the market and our partners, the INFOLine analytical agency, which has presented the most in-depth and professional market analysis at the forum for ten years," said Yakov Syromyatnikov, Director of the MosBuild exhibition
