Sulphuric Acid Production, Market and Forecast in Russia/CIS

Notes

Notice: The original report is written in Russian. Please ask us for more information regarding delivery time.

The report is devoted to investigation of current standing of sulfuric acid market in CIS countries/Russia and forecast of its development.

The report is composed of 7 Sections, contains 135 pages, including 17 Figures, 47 Tables and 3 Appendices.

The first Section of the report presents data on methods of obtaining sulfuric acid and on resources, used in the industry, describes directions and volumes of supplies of raw materials to producers of sulfuric acid.

The second Section of the report is devoted to analysis of production of sulfuric acid from 1994 to 2011 in the CIS. The Section presents data on volumes of the production, traces dynamics of the production by enterprises of Russia and Ukraine and estimates utilization of their capacities, analyses current standing of producers of sulfuric acid in Russia. The Section presents data on available resources base, volumes of the production, plans on development of the enterprises, and data on volumes and directions of supplies of the products for the latest years.

The third Section describes foreign trade in sulfuric acid in Russia and Ukraine with analysis of volumes and flows (directions) of export-import supplies of the enterprise-producers.

The fourth Section is devoted to analysis of dynamics of prices on sulfuric acid at domestic and export markets.

The fifth Section of the report describes consumption of sulfuric acid in Russia. The Section presents supply-demand balance of sulfuric acid, considers the main end-uses and the main enterprise-consumers of sulfuric acid, and describes methods of utilization of surplus of sulfuric acid.

The sixth Section of the report describes some aspects and features of transportation of sulfuric acid in Russia.

The seventh Section presents forecast of sulfuric acid production in Russia up to 2020.

The Appendices presents addresses and contact data of basic company-producers and consumers of sulfuric acid and intra-plant consumption of sulfuric acid at enterprise-manufacturers.

The report is a desk study. As information sources for description and analysis of the sulfuric acid market, we applied data of Federal Service of State Statistics (Rosstat), Federal Customs Service of Russia (FCS), State Customs Agency of Ukraine, official domestic railage statistics of JSC RZhD (previously Ministry of Railways of Russia), the sector and regional press, annual and quarterly repots of companies, web-sites of company-producers and consumers of the product, as well as own InfoMine database.

This all allowed the authors to reveal actual picture of current standing of sulfuric acid market in the CIS/Russia and prospects of its development.
