Overview of the Russian Market of Commercial Lime: Results of 2019 and Forecast for 2020
- Number of journal:
The analysis of the state and main trends in the development of the domestic lime market in comparison with the United States and Europe is made. It is noted that in connection with the transition of Russia to new versions of the All-Russia Classifier of Types of Economic Activity (OKVED2) and the All-Russia Classifier of Products by Types of Economic Activity (OKPD2), harmonized respectively with the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Economic Community (NACE Rev.2) and the Statistical Classification of Products by Types of Activity in the European Economic Community (CPA 2008), there are serious difficulties with the objective statistical accounting of lime including the comparison of production statistics with data for previous periods. “GS-Expert” LLC has developed a methodology for evaluating the production of commercial lime, i.e. products sold at the market, which makes it possible to estimate the total volume of deliveries to the market of both construction lime and excesses of technological lime. This made it possible to specify the volume of lime production in 2018 in the amount of 11.7–11.9 million tons, which is slightly higher than Rosstat data – 11.5 million tons. Data on the dynamics and structure of production and consumption of slaked and quicklime, trends in foreign trade operations are presented. The production rating of the 10 largest Russian lime producers was determined, and it is shown that due to the introduction of new capacities, the leading position was taken by “Klintsovsky silicate plant” CJSC. An increase in investment activity in the industry is noted. The forecast of market development for 2020 is given.
