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
