Extract from this rep

  • In Russia, demand for mobile cranes is largely met by domestic brands. It is estimated that 618 mobile cranes were imported in Russia in 2013 and 640 in 2014, accounting for only 12% and 20% of domestic production in the respective years in question.
  • JCB, SDLCMG and Bobcat are the most popular brands of wheeled front loaders in Russia. In 2014 these four brands accounted for 36% of imports of such machines to the country, whereas a year earlier the proportion was even more substantial (44%).
  • Of 243 articulated dump trucks imported to Russia last year, 142 units (58%) were Volvo vehicles.

Market commentary by expert

“Imported machinery currently dominates the market. Russian products can barely compete with their Chinese equivalents, which are often more modern and energy efficient, in terms of cost. With regard to Western brands, even used machinery tends to be more expensive but surpasses Russian equipment in terms of ergonomics, comfort, a wider product range and quality of service. For example production of excavators, which continues to be the most widely used category of construction equipment in Russia, has plummeted over the past two decades. In the early 1990s more than 15,000 excavators were assembled in Russia every year, whereas in 2012-2014 the figure came to less than 2,000 every year. Until 2012, when Russia joined the WTO, the government had provided an insignificant amount of incentives for domestic production of construction machinery, almost exclusively in the form of increases in import duty rates. Eventually, those rate increases had generated a limited effect on imports of such machines. Furthermore, since 2012 import duty rates have been reduced or maintained at existing levels but not increased further. The latest major stimulus from the Government of the Russian Federation was provided in July 2014, when it approved Decree No. 656, which bans state and municipal administrations as well as legal entities which are 100% controlled by federal, regional, and/or municipal administrations to purchases construction machinery manufactured outside the Eurasian Economic Union. The ban also applies to foreign brands produced in Russia but with a level of manufacturing localisation of up to 50%. However, it is estimated that those companies and public administrations are responsible for fewer than 5% of public tenders initiated every year throughout the country. So far, this ban has created a marginal effect on production of construction machinery in Russia.” Vitalie Iambla, Construction Analyst.
