Russian consumers

As shown by the statistics of the Federal Customs Service of Russia, in May of this year the import of sheet stainless steel into the country has significantly decreased: by more than a third compared to May of the previous year. The data for the five-month period differ less radically. In the period from the 1st to the 5th month of 2012, the volume of imports of flat stainless steel was 52 thousand tons, which is only 1.4% less than the corresponding figure in the previous year.

A total of 10.6 thousand tons of sheet stainless steel was transported across the borders of the Russian Federation in May 2012. Approximately a quarter of all deliveries in the reporting period amounted to imports of Taiwanese metallurgists, while the share of Chinese producers accounted for about 14% of Russian imports. Korean and Spanish manufacturers during this time imported into the country no more than 1/10 of the total volume of "overseas" stainless steel. Recall that in the past year, the growth of imports of flat stainless steel rolled into Russia has increased rapidly (for 2011, more than 244 thousand tons of metals of this category were imported to the country, which is 27.9% more than in 2010). Even more dynamic was the surge in the interest of Russian consumers in long products (imports grew by 46% at that time) and to the primary stock of stainless steel (about 75%).
