    This report is the 7th edition of the niobium market research in the CIS countries and its development forecast.

    Market monitoring has been conducted since 1997.

    The purpose of the study is to analyze the market for niobium-containing concentrates, niobium pentoxide, ferroniobium, niobium metal, niobium master alloys. A brief overview of the situation on the world market for niobium and its raw materials.

    Objects of study: niobium ores, niobium concentrates (pyrochloric, loparitic, tantalite), niobium pentoxide, ferroniobium, niobium metal, master alloys and alloys.

    This review is the most comprehensive among those represented in the information market on this topic, and claims to be a reference tool, since Rosta’s reporting does not contain information on the production of niobium-containing products and not all manufacturers report data on the release of these goods. The use of fragmented, unsystematic data can lead to wrong management decisions made by marketing services and professionals working in the niobium market.

    The second distinctive feature of this work is the latitude of the geographical and temporal framework - a detailed analysis of the production and foreign economic operations with niobium metal and niobium-containing products not only in Russia, but also in the CIS countries in the period 1997-2018 has been carried out.

     

    This work is a desk study. The sources of information were data from the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation (Rosstat), official statistics of rail transportation of the Russian Federation, Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS of the Russian Federation), State Customs Service of Ukraine, Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Statistics, State Statistics Committee of the CIS, UNComtrade database, database InfoMine. Also, data of sectoral and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of issuers of securities, websites of producers and consumers of niobium and niobium-containing products were attracted. The materials of the InfoMine surveys were used: “Rare Earth Elements (Metals) Market Report in the CIS and the World (11th edition, 2018),“ Tantalum and its products market in the world ”(1st edition, 2017),

    Chronological framework of the study: 1997-2018; forecast - until 2025

    Geography research: the Russian Federation - a comprehensive detailed analysis of the market; Ukraine, Kazakhstan - analysis of foreign trade activities and production is considered fragmentary.

     

    Scope of study: the report consists of 8 parts, contains 135 pages, including 52 tables, 49 figures, 1 appendix.

    The first chapter of the report gives a brief description of the world market for niobium raw materials and niobium metal (reserves, mining, production, export-import of ferro-tungsten by countries, global consumption structure).

    In the second chapter of the report, the mineral and raw material base of niobium in the CIS countries (in more detail in Russia) is considered, the structure of reserves and the characteristics of the main deposits are given. Describes the state of Russian producers of niobium in concentrate.

    The third chapter of the report is devoted to the analysis of plans for the development of new niobium deposits in Russia. The development of the Zashikhinsky and Tomtorsky projects are considered in more detail.

    The fourth chapter presents an analysis of the production in Russia and Kazakhstan of niobium-containing products (ferroniobium, pentoxide, metallic niobium, ligatures) in 1997-2018.

    In the fifth chapter of the report foreign trade operations with niobium concentrates, ferroniobium, niobium pentoxide, metallic niobium and niobium ligatures in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine in 1997-2018 are considered.

    In the sixth chapter, the dynamics of prices for ferroniobium and niobium pentoxide in the world and Russian markets are given.

    The seventh chapter is devoted to the consumption of niobium in Russia. In this section, a balance of production and consumption of this metal is drawn up, and the consumption structure is given.

    The eighth chapter examines the prospects for the Russian niobium market until 2025 based on an analysis of the development of consuming industries. In general, the position of the national economy sectors using niobium and the prospects for their development give the right to assert that in the near future the consumption growth of this metal will continue.

    The appendices provide contact information for enterprises-producers and consumers.

     

    Target audience of the study:

    - niobium market participants - producers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors.

    The proposed study claims to be the reference for marketing services and management decision-makers working in the niobium market.
