Reduce the volume of imports of stainless pipe and increases the purchases of flat-rolled
According to customs statistics of the Russian Federation,
the volume of imports of stainless steel pipes is reduced. At the same
time, the number of flat metal stainless, imported into the territory of the state,
In particular, in the past month (compared to
the September figures) indicators of import to Russia of electric-welded pipes from
stainless steel has declined nearly 30%. Even more significant regression
indicators for seamless pipe (-50% to September).
In parallel with the negative dynamics of the pipes,
analysts of the Russian market of metals celebrate the revival of demand in the remaining
the types of stainless steel imported. So the volume of foreign
supply of flat products of corrosion-resistant varieties of metal increased
October by 23.5% in comparison with last month. Less sharp «jump»
figures showed the sector rolled ahead of the September
indicators 18%. But the volume of imports of stainless steel wire made
very noticeable «jerk» in October in Russia has imported this production is 133% more
than in the previous month.
Experts working on the steel market in Russia,
I believe that the growing interest of local buyers to stainless metal foreign
production (+15.8% in October throughout the segment), a phenomenon predictable and
expected. The opposite behavior of pipes made of stainless steel is
just an echo of the introduction of import quotas, which replaced the earlier
in Russia anti-dumping duties.
