Description

This report is the 13th edition of tungsten market research in Russia and the CIS.

Market monitoring has been conducted since 1999.

The purpose of the study is to analyze the market of tungsten concentrates, tungsten anhydride, ammonium paratungstate, metallic tungsten and ferro-tungsten. The situation in the world market of tungsten and its raw materials is briefly analyzed.

The objects of study are tungsten ores, tungsten concentrates (scheelite and tungsten), paratungstate, tungsten anhydride, ferro-tungsten and metallic tungsten.

This work is a desk study. As sources of information, we used data from the Federal State Statistics Service, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, statistics on railway transportation of the Russian Federation, the Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Statistics, and the State Customs Service of Ukraine; materials of the US State Geological Survey (USGS), data from the UNdata database, industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of issuers of securities, as well as websites of manufacturers of tungsten raw materials, ferro-tungsten and metal tungsten.

This review is the most comprehensive among those presented on the information market on this topic, and claims to be a reference guide. Using data without additional thorough analysis may lead to erroneous management decisions by marketing services and specialists working in the tungsten raw materials market.

Chronological scope of the study: 1999-2019; the forecast is 2020-2028.

Geography of research: Russian Federation - a detailed comprehensive analysis of the market; Republic of Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan - general retrospective analysis of the market; the rest of the world - general information about the dynamics and characteristics of the market.

The report consists of 9 parts, contains 213 pages, including 47 figures, 70 tables and 1 appendix.

The first chapter of the report gives a brief description of the global market of tungsten concentrate and metal tungsten (reserves, production, production, export-import of concentrate and metal tungsten by country, prices).

The second chapter of the report provides information on the mineral resource base of tungsten in the CIS countries (in more detail in Russia), the structure of reserves and the characteristics of the main deposits.

The third chapter discusses the dynamics of production of W concentrate in Russia in 1998-2019, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan. The current state of Russian and foreign GOKs producing tungsten concentrates is described. In addition, this chapter contains information on the export-import of W concentrate in the Russian Federation. Separately, the balance of production-consumption of concentrates in the Russian Federation in 1999-2019 was considered.

The fourth chapter is devoted to the market of ammonium paratungstate (PVA) and tungsten anhydride. The data on the production of these raw materials in Russia and Uzbekistan are presented. The Russian foreign trade operations with tungstates in 1999-2019, as well as the balance of production and consumption during this period are examined in detail.

The fifth chapter of the report describes the current state of industries consuming tungsten raw materials:

  • production of ferro-tungsten (the main Russian manufacturers, a detailed analysis of Russian export-import of FeW);
  • production, export-import of metallic tungsten in the CIS (description of the main Russian manufacturers, analysis of Russian foreign trade operations with various tungsten products).

The sixth chapter is devoted to Russian export-import prices for tungsten concentrate and anhydride.

The seventh chapter discusses projects and investments in the tungsten industry in Russia and the CIS countries.

The eighth chapter is the forecast of production and consumption of tungsten raw materials (concentrate and anhydride) in Russia until 2028.

The ninth chapter predicts the development of the main consuming industries: mechanical engineering and the production of carbide tools.

The appendix contains contact information of the main enterprises producing and consuming tungsten raw materials.

The target audience of the study:

  • market participants in tungsten concentrate and its further consumption chains - manufacturers, consumers, traders;
  • potential investors.

The proposed study claims the role of a reference tool for marketing services and specialists making managerial decisions working in the market of tungsten raw materials.
