New capacities and prospects for import substitution in the Russian market of coated steel


New capacities and prospects for import substitution in the Russian market of coated steel

Metal Expert Consulting representative’s presentation at the 10th International Conference "Galvanized and Coated Rolled Products", held March 20, 2015 in Moscow.

We note that the existing shortage of production capacities in Russia will contribute to their further expansion, but in the 2015-2020 years the pace of increase will slow down. With the implementation of all the announced plans the flat galvanized steel capacitieswill grow by 1.1 mntons, PPGI - by 780 ‘000 tons.

Until 2020 the market will remain in a state of shortage of domestic supply and a significant proportion of imports. Metal Expert estimates average annual growth in the Russian market of coated steel as 2%

The priority areas of import substitution are:

• Increase shipments to the automotive industry, manufacturers of household appliances.Expand presence in the markets of the Siberian and Far Eastern Federal Districts

• Increase the share of low-alloy steel with zinc coating, increase the share of expensive types of coatings

• Increase use of steel coated with aluminum-zinc alloys (in the production of household appliances, construction)

• Increase the proportion of high-strength steels and steels for cold drawing.
