Benzene Market in CIS and Forecast of Its Development in Conditions of the Financial-Economic Crisis
In July, InfoMine issued research of benzol market in CIS. The study presents comprehensive analysis of the benzol market and forecast of its development in conditions of the financial-economic crisis.
Demand for benzol in Russia, same to all over the world, is governed by production of its three derivatives: ethylbenzene, caprolactam and phenol. In conditions of the crisis production volumes of these products (and, correspondingly, consumption of benzol in these end-uses) demonstrate different trends. In 2008 phenol output showed the greatest setback, and correspondingly consumption of benzol in its production demonstrated the highest drop (-14.1%). At the same time, demand for benzol in productions of ethylbenzene and caprolactam showed lower degree of setback (-8.4% and -8.6%, respectively).
In 2008, demand for benzol decreased by 10.7%. "InfoMine" forecasts dropping consumption of benzol in Russia this year by 18-20% (mainly at the expense of decreasing demand for phenol).

Dolomite Market Research in CIS and Forecast of Its Development in Conditions of the Financial-Economic Crisis
In latest years, around 80% of dolomite mining volume in the CIS belongs to Russia.
In 2008, in spite of very negative impact of the financial-economic crisis on Russian industry, consumption of dolomite in Russia increased by 5% compared with 2007 up to 4.8 mln t.
At that, the demand for dolomite products is satisfied mainly by domestic producers; volumes of imports and exports of dolomite are below 2% of its consumption and production, respectively, in the country.
According to "InfoMine"’ forecast, in 2009 consumption of dolomite in Russia will decrease by 15-22% compared with 2008, and increasing production and consumption of dolomite in the country will start unless and until 2011. By 2015, consumption of dolomite in Russia will reach approximately current level, 4.8 mln t maximum. In case of unfavorable scenario of economic situation development, volume of dolomite consumption in Russia will not exceed 4.3 mln t in 2015.
