Extract from this report

  • In Russia, demand for mobile cranes is largely met by domestic brands. It is estimated that 776 mobile cranes were imported in Russia in 2012 and 618 in 2013, accounting for only 16% and 12% of domestic production in the respective years in question.
  • JCB, SDLG, XCMG and Bobcat are, by far, the most popular brands of wheeled front loaders in Russia. In 2013 these four brands accounted for 44% of imports of such machines to the country, whereas a year earlier the proportion was even more substantial (50%).
  • Of 381 articulated dump trucks imported to Russia last year, 157 units (41%) were Volvo vehicles.

Market commentary by expert

Imported machinery currently dominates the market, and this is expected to be intensified further in the wake of Russia's recent joining of the WTO, which has brought down import duties, falling competitiveness as domestic electricity prices for industry approach those in more developed countries, and due to imposed sanctions on investment and technology transfer in response to the crisis in eastern Ukraine. In the near future, Russian producers are likely to play only a marginal role on the domestic market. The only solution for them seems to be a search for partnerships with established Western brands.

In the coming years the construction machinery market in Russia will be largely fuelled by the government's determination to boost investment in transport infrastructure projects as well as to expand the country's per capita housing more rapidly, which is now seen at about 24 m2 whereas in most European countries this figure exceeds 30 m2. In 2013, the World Economic Forum's 2013-2014 Global Competitiveness Report ranked Russia 93rd among 148 countries in terms of the quality of overall infrastructure (86th out of 133 countries in 2009). The quality of the country's roads took 136th position, down 18 places in four years; the quality of air transport infrastructure held 102nd place; and the quality of port infrastructure took 88th. Only the quality of railway infrastructure was placed higher at 31st. Vitalie Iambla, Construction market Analyst.
