Materials are at the heart of all branches of engineering. Engineers are better engineers if they have a good understanding of the properties of the materials which they use. The challenge to the engineer is also made greater by the pace at which new mater ials are being developed. The most challenging issue s in the Construction industry in the last decade is price variation of Construction raw materials . Many researchers have been done in the last decade however a deeper understanding is still needed to imp rove the region wise price variation of Construction raw materials by studying the market behavior in the construction industry . The aim of this study is to get the latest information and to identify the ke y factors that affect price variation of construction raw materials in Gujarat by study of market behavior in the construction industry . Data’s are collected through questionnaires and distributed to respondents who work at various pr ojects in wide area in Gujarat . Respondents were required to rate and analyse using their experience and the factors were identified from past researches, which affects the project performance and then the level is measured based on their effect . The data collected are analyzed using Microsoft Excel or Statistical Package for the Social Sciences ( SPSS Statistics 17.0 ) software which is analytical software.
