Description

This report is the result of a market research of wood pellets and briquettes in Russia and Europe.

Market monitoring has been ongoing since 2006.

The purpose of the study is to analyze the supply situation of the Russian market of wood pellets and briquettes in the markets of the countries of the European Union.

The objects of research are wood fuel pellets and fuel briquettes.

This work is a desk study. As sources of information, the data of the Federal State Statistics Service, the Federal

Customs Service of the Russian Federation, and statistics on rail transportation of the Russian Federation were used; used, data base UNdata and Eurostat; materials of world agencies, industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, as well as websites of producers and consumers of wood pellets and briquettes.

Chronological framework of the study: 2015-2017; forecast - to 2020.

Geography of the study: Russian Federation, - comprehensive detailed market analysis; European countries - a general retrospective analysis of the market.

The report consists of 8 parts, contains 67 pages, including 6 figures, 28 tables.

The first chapter of the report gives a general description of wood pellets, briquettes, quality and transportation requirements, and production technologies.

In the second chapter of the report presents evaluation of raw materials ensure the production of wood pellets and briquettes in the world and in Russia, given the structure of wood waste, estimated capacity of the Russian and the world market production of pellets.

In the third chapter of the report, data on the volumes of pellet production in the period 2013-2017 in the context of the Federal Districts of the Russian Federation were analyzed.

The fourth chapter is devoted to a detailed analysis of exports of fuel granules (pellets) from Russia to the European Union in 2015-2017, given the volume of export deliveries of directions, according to the method of transportation, at seaports, for manufacturing enterprises, and for companies to senders, companies-on buyers with a description of their specialization. Also in this chapter, we forecast the supply of pellets for export in 2018-2020.

The fifth chapter is devoted to a detailed analysis of exports of fuel briquettes from Russia to the European Union in 2015-2017, given the volume of export deliveries of directions, according to the method of transportation, at seaports, for manufacturing enterprises, and for companies to senders of the acquirers description their specialization. Also in this chapter, we forecast the supply of pellets for export in 2018-2020.

In the sixth chapter of the report, the export of fuel pellets to the European Union countries from other countries and within the EU countries between 2015-2017.

The seventh chapter provides information on the largest European energy companies that use biofuel for generating thermal and electrical energy.

With the eighth chapter the main conclusions on the research are formulated.

The target audience of the study:

  • participants of the market of wood pellets - producers, consumers, traders;
  • potential investors.

The proposed research claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and specialists who make management decisions that work in the biofuel market.
