Sulfuric Acid in Russia and Neighboring Countries: Production, Market and Forecast
Published: September 30, 2020 Content info:
Description

This report is the first edition of a survey of the sulfuric acid market in Russia and surrounding countries.

The market has been monitored since 2002.

The purpose of the study is to analyze the sulfuric acid markets in Russia and neighboring countries.

The object of research is sulfuric acid (including technical, improved, battery).

A distinctive feature of this study is a detailed consideration not only of the sulfuric acid market in general, but also the separation of the improved and battery H2SO4 markets from the total production and consumption. The sources of the raw materials used are described in sufficient detail, as well as the directions and volumes of its supplies.

In addition, the markets of the countries of the closest Russian environment (Finland, Norway, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, China) are considered in detail, since the transportation of the investigated chemical over longer distances is impractical due to its aggressiveness.

The presented work is a desk study. Databases of the UN (UNdate), the Statistical Committees of the CIS countries (including Rosstat, the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the Agency on Statistics of the Republic of Kazakhstan), customs statistics of the Russian Federation and Ukraine, official statistics of railway transportation of the Russian Federation were used as information sources; materials of the industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, websites of enterprises-producers and consumers of sulfuric acid, as well as the InfoMine database.

Chronological scope of the study: 2014-2019; forecast - 2020-2025

Research geography: Russian Federation - comprehensive detailed market analysis; Finland, Norway, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, China - general retrospective market analysis.

The report consists of 4 parts, contains 104 pages, including 39 tables, 19 figures and 4 appendices.

The first chapter of the report provides information on the methods of obtaining sulfuric acid and raw materials used in industry, considers the directions and volumes of supplies of raw materials to producers of sulfuric acid.

The second chapter is devoted to the analysis of the Russian market for sulfuric acid for the period 1994-2019. The section provides data on production volumes, traces the dynamics of the output of these products by Russian enterprises, considers the current state of the main producers of sulfuric acid.

The chapter also examines in detail foreign trade operations with sulfuric acid in the Russian Federation with an analysis of the volumes and directions of export-import supplies, presents the dynamics of export-import prices.

In addition, the consumption of sulfuric acid in Russia is considered. In particular, the balance of production and the structure of consumption of this product was compiled, the main areas of application and the main enterprises-consumers of sulfuric acid were considered.

At the end of the chapter, there is a production-consumption forecast for the period up to 2025 and 2035.

The third chapter analyzes the sulfuric acid market of the states bordering on the Russian Federation. The production, export-import and consumption of the investigated chemical (with the release of acid of improved quality and battery) is considered in detail.

The fourth chapter identifies the main trends in the development of the sulfuric acid market (with the allocation of improved and battery acid) for Russia and states that have a common border with the Russian Federation.

The appendices contain specifications for sulfuric acid produced by individual manufacturing enterprises, in-plant consumption of sulfuric acid by Russian manufacturing enterprises, as well as addresses and contact information of the main manufacturers and consumers of sulfuric acid in the Russian Federation.

Target audience of the study:

  • Sulfuric acid market participants - producers, consumers, traders;
  • potential investors.

The proposed study claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and decision-makers working in the sulfuric acid market.
