Notes

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

This report is currently available in Russian language only. However, we can provide an English version of the report within 3 weeks after receiving a payment.

The report is devoted to research of current condition in the market of rare-earth elements in CIS countries and forecast for its development.

The rare earth elements or metals ("rare earths") include yttrium, lanthanum and 13 elements in the lanthanide group (cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium and lutetium).

The report is composed of 8 Sections, contains 110 pages, including 47 Figures and 34 Tables. This work is an armchair study. Useful sources of information are data from Russian State Statistic Service, CIS countries Inter-State Statistics Committee, State Statistics Committee of Ukraine, State Customs Service of Ukraine, Kazakhstan's Statistics Agency, Federal Customs Service of Russian Federation, industrial and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of stock issuers, web-sites of REE producers and consumers, foreign media, scientific literature. There were also several interviews with experts in this field.

The First Section of the report presents brief description of REE World market, gives World reserves, production (2002-2011), consumption, as well as prices of certain kinds of REE in 2006-2011.

The Second Section of the report details REE mineral raw materials base in the CIS. It gives characteristics of the existing deposits in the territory of the CIS (Russia, Kazakhstan, Kirgizia and Ukraine); it presents potential REE reserves in the CIS.

The Third Section of the report is devoted to rare-earth raw materials processing projects in the CIS territory. It stresses most promising projects, gives their description.

The Fourth Section deals with mining and treatment of REE containing ores. It gives detailed description of the key producers of the products in the CIS countries. The key one among them is LLC “Levozersky GOK”.

The Fifth Section is devoted to manufacturing of rare-earth products in the CIS. The Section presents range of rare-earth products, describes current state of REE producers in the CIS as well as shows dynamics of their output and deliveries.

The Sixth Section contains REE export and import statistics in Russia in 1997-2012 split by avenues of supply and type of goods. Here one could find different REE (compounds and metals) price dynamics. The section is supplemented with situation in REE foreign trade operations by Kazakhstan, Ukraine and other CIS countries.

The Seventh Section describes in detail consumption of rare-earth products in Russia. The Section presents dynamics of REE consumption in Russia (2000-2012), structure of individual REE consumption and key consumer enterprises. It also gives brief characteristics of rare-earth products' fields of application.

The Eighth Section is devoted to REE products output and consumption forecast in Russia/CIS until 2020. It presents different scenarios for REE market situation in Russia.

The Appendixes present quality of the main rare-earth products manufactured by AS Silmet, as well as addresses and contact information with enterprises that manufacture rare-earth products.
