    This report is the seventeenth edition of the CIS sulfur market research.

    The market has been monitored since 2002.

    The purpose of the study is to analyze the Russian and CIS markets for sulfur.

    The object of research is sulfur (lumpy, liquid, granular).

    A distinctive feature of this study is a detailed description of the main sources of raw materials for the production of various types of sulfur, not only in Russia, but also in other CIS countries. Information about the global sulfur market, as well as the sulfur markets of all CIS countries (including Ukraine), includes a detailed description of the largest manufacturers and consumers of the chemical in question.

     

    The presented work is a desk study. Databases of the UN (UNdata), the Statistical Committees of the CIS countries (including Rosstat, the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the Agency on Statistics of the Republic of Kazakhstan), customs statistics of the Russian Federation and Ukraine, official statistics of railway transportation of the Russian Federation were used as sources of information; materials from the industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, Internet sites of enterprises-producers and consumers of sulfur, as well as the InfoMine database.

    Chronological scope of the study: 1997-2020; forecast - 2021-2030

    Research geography: Russian Federation - comprehensive detailed market analysis; Ukraine, Republic of Kazakhstan, Belarus and other CIS countries - general retrospective market analysis.

     

    The report consists of 7 Sections, contains 193 pages, including 65 tables, 69 figures and 2 appendices.

    The first chapter provides a brief description of the world sulfur market for the period 2000-2019, as well as the prospects for its development.

    The second chapter is devoted to methods for producing sulfur and raw materials used in industry; it examines the directions and volumes of supplies of raw materials to its producers in the CIS.

    The third chapter analyzes the production of sulfur in the CIS for the period from 1998 to 2020. The section provides data on the volumes and structure of production, traces the dynamics of the output of these products by enterprises in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, considers the current state of sulfur producers in the CIS (provides data on the available raw material base, production volumes, plans for the development of enterprises, as well as data on volumes and directions of product supplies in recent years).

    The fourth chapter of the report examines foreign trade operations with sulfur in the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Kazakhstan and other CIS countries with an analysis of the volumes and directions of export-import supplies, as well as other CIS countries.

    The fifth chapter is devoted to the analysis of the dynamics of prices for sulfur in the domestic and foreign markets of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Kazakhstan in 2003-2020.

    The sixth part describes the market for sulfur consumption in the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. It analyzes in detail the structure of consumption, the "production-consumption" balance. An overview of the main sectors of consumption is given, as well as a description of the largest Russian enterprises-consumers of this product.

    The seventh chapter of the report provides a forecast (including price) of the development of the Russian sulfur market for the period up to 2030.

    The appendices contain the addresses and contact information of the main producers (in Russia and the CIS) and consumers (in Russia) of sulfur.

     

    Target audience of the study:

    - Sulfur market participants - producers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors.

     

    The proposed study claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and decision-makers working in the sulfur market.
