This review is the 1st edition of the study of the uranium raw materials market in Russia and the CIS.
The purpose of the study is to analyze the Russian market of uranium raw materials, as well as the CIS countries - in detail; Analysis of the global uranium raw materials market is fragmentary.
This market has been monitored since 2009.
The object of research is the geological reserves and resources of uranium, the production of oxide-nitrous oxide, as well as export-import operations with it.
Chronological scope of the study: 2009-2019, forecast - 2020-2035.
Research geography: Russian Federation and the CIS countries (Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan) - a comprehensive detailed analysis, the whole world - a brief description.
This work is a desk study. As sources of information, we used data from the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation (Rosstat), the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS of the Russian Federation), the IAEA, Rosatom and its mining divisions, the UNcomtrade trade database, the World Nuclear Association WNA, scientific and technical literature, industry, regional and international press, as well as Internet sites of enterprises - producers and consumers of uranium raw materials.
The report consists of an introduction, 7 chapters and annex, contains 118 pages, including 40 tables and 22 figures.
The first chapter of the review is devoted to the study of the mineral resource base of uranium in the world. The dynamics of discovering uranium deposits since 1940 is presented. A list of the largest deposits in the world is given, including in Kazakhstan and Russia.
The second chapter of the review describes the main countries and companies engaged in the extraction of uranium raw materials from the subsoil. An increase in world uranium production by the method of underground borehole leaching was noted.
The third chapter of the review is devoted to new projects for the development of uranium deposits for the period until 2035.
The fourth chapter of the review discusses foreign trade operations. International trade in uranium is carried out through two channels: 1) uranium ores and ore concentrates; 2) a chemical concentrate of uranium raw materials in the form of nitrous oxide or ammonium polyuranates, the so-called "yellow cake".
In the fifth chapter of the review, a study is made of the state of production of uranium raw materials. Raw material processing volume correlates with current uranium consumption and stock movement. Extraction methods are widely used for uranium refining.
The sixth chapter of the review provides information on the mineral resource base, mining and processing of uranium raw materials in Russia and the CIS. Information is also provided on new uranium projects and on foreign trade operations with natural uranium.
The seventh chapter of the review analyzes the general prospects of nuclear energy in the world and gives a forecast for nuclear power generation and consumption of uranium in Russia and the CIS. A basic forecast is made for uranium mining in the world by 2035, taking into account the coronavirus pandemic.
The Appendix gives the mass fraction of impurities in the conditioned uranium oxide-oxide, and a list of used literature and contact information of enterprises producing uranium raw materials in the CIS.
A feature of the report that distinguishes it from competitors is the analysis of forecasts and their errors regarding the consumption of uranium raw materials in the world, the CIS and Russia.
The target audience of the study:
The proposed study claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and management decision-makers working in the uranium raw materials market.
Appendix 1: List of the main used literature
