Which is the best material for budget modular kitchen in South India?

I am looking for budget modular kitchen for my home and the some of the options available in local market are Ferrocement, Multiwood, MDF, Steel etc. The ferrocement looks cheaper but worried about any possible issues in fitting channel trays and doors...Most of the shops wouldn't recommend ferrocement saying its not durable and fixing issue...may be due to profit margins

So, looking for recommendations.

Ferrocement must be brittle. I don't know... just the name says so.

MDF would be the cheapest.. because it's the shittiest substance.
But as long as you don't let water touch the exposed MDF and use proper supports, it's the best for budget kitchens.

Use marine grade ply. It'll be little costly but handles water well.

Steel would be the costliest and clunkiest. It's best used for messy areas, such as restaurants and hospitals. It's durable, easy to clean and harbors less bacteria.

Multiwood may help you in avoiding termites and water damage.

garam lauda is beginning to get noticed
best suggested- go with 710 grade marine plywood for bottom counters and 303 grade for OHS and Lofts...

there are so many ply available in market... go with grade... and pricing.. followed with lamination.

For budget modular kitchen using Marine Ply the vendors quote approx. Rs 1500 to Rs 2000/- per sqft for wooden work only ie. without fittings like tray,handles etc. Is it normal rate?
