This report is devoted to the investigation of current standing of market of welding electrodes in Russia and medium-term forecast of the market development. The Report is made up of seven sections, contains 90 pages including 27 tables and 11 illustrations. This work is a desk study. The authors used the following sources of information: data of the Federal Agency of the State Statistics, RF Federal Customs Service, official railage statistic, annual and quarterly reports of companies, as well as data from web sites of market players. Since trucking of freight is not liable to obligatory statistic in Russia, the report provides only railway transportation data.
The first Section of the report presents review of technology of production and technical requirements, imposed on quality of welding electrodes, as well as data on consumables for their production, including some data on supplies of the resources to enterprise-producers of welding electrodes.
The second Section is devoted to analysis of production statistics for the decade from 1997 until 2006, including data on the welding electrodes output over the same period both in Russia as a whole and broken by enterprises. The dynamics of production has been also reviewed. Besides, the Section describes the current state of certain producers, primarily the biggest of them – The Orel plant OAO “Severstal-Metiz”, OAO “Losinoostrovskyi Electrode Plant”, ZAO “Welding Electodes Plant SIBES”. Data on range and quality of produced welding “electrodes, volumes of the production, plans on development of the enterprises are presented, as well as data on volumes and destinations of supplies of the products in 2004-2006 both to domestic and world market.
The third Section deals with analysis of Russian foreign trade in welding electrodes in 1999-2006.
The fourth Section is devoted to analysis of prices on welding electrodes. The Section presents dynamics of average monthly release prices of producers of welding electrodes from 2001 to 2006, the prices of some producers in May 2007, dynamics of average annual export and import prices in 1999-2006, and export and import prices of some suppliers and buyers in December 2007.
The fifth Section presents analysis of consumption of welding electrodes in Russia. The Section presents supply-demand balance of the product and data on volumes of the consumption of large consumers in 2004-200.
The sixth, final Section of the report focuses on the prospects of Russian of market of welding electrodes (medium-term forecast), based on analysis of development of end-uses. The analysis allows to expect increasing consumption of welding electrodes in nearest years, at even higher rates than in latest years.
The appendix contains contact information on enterprises-producers and some traders.
