The Russian’s aluminum products market is gradually developing
The Russian’s aluminum products market is gradually developing and doesn’t not wish to remain in stable condition. Recently, it revealed a number of interesting trends, the process of consolidation in the first place. In particular, United Russian Aluminium Company, established as a result of merging of Rusal and SUAL, is the only domestic producer of primary aluminium and aluminum foil. This year, a British concern Rexam was approved by the Federal Antimonopoly Service to purchase the company Rostar, wich was a division of Rusal. Now, as a result of this transaction in the domestic market a player will appear who has three factories with a total capacity of approximately 5 bln banks per year.
Situation with the production of aluminum profiles is different, in the midst of consolidating of production of primary aluminium, foil and banks. Consolidation is not yet here, on the other hand, new players come to the market, and its structure is gradually differentiating. Moreover, enterprises set up additional press, thus increasing their power. Meanwhile, Central and Southern Federal Districts are becoming leading centres for production of profiles.
As for the rolled aluminum market, some consumers prefer to buy it not from Russian suppliers, but from foreign. This is due to a long period performing of orders by domestic enterprises, unstable supply policies, etc.
Prospects of the development of Russia's aluminium market will be discussed at the International Conference "The Market of Rolled Aluminum Profiles in Russia", which will be held on May 29-30 at Expocentr Fairgrounds, Moscow.
