Building Materials

The increase in the Nigerian population is on a surge, and this makes it necessary for new houses to be built as everyone has to seek shelter. This fact has made the building materials business a juicy one, if not one of the juiciest or gainful one in the country. Nigeria has been ranked the most populous African nation and studies have shown that the figures will hit 500 million by 2050, that is a 302 increase from the current 198 million if the surge maintains its present trend.

A country like ours tends towards a lack of shelter, and while it is already a problem it may become intensified as the years go by. Building of more houses will of course be the only solution to the Nigerian situation, and this would in turn put the building material business on the spot.

“ROI” is a primal factor to expect when settling for a venture. ROI means ‘RETURN ON INVESTMENT'(The profit made on the capital invested). This business like every other is profitable to some, while some accrue loss in the process. All it demands is a lot of input and diligence. This business is not a seasonal business, it is viable all year round and this is because of the importance of housing to Humans, so it is not possible for one to go out of business. The good thing about this business is that one man can not be a jack of all trades within the fold of this venture. One person can not undertake the sale of all materials, it is just for one to find the one which is most suitable for him. There was a man who sold his car and invested the money therefrom into the business and in less than a year, the business was already standing and booming and he had gotten another car. Profitability like I said before depends on input, consistence, and how far the entrepreneur is willing to go.
