A significant resource base and high level of integration between the key players in the chain have guaranteed a sustainable and competitive position for the Russian metals and mining industry. From this point in time, one can expect the industry to develop dynamically in the medium-term. Demand will be driven by a growing number of construction projects for infrastructure, housing, and machinery at the national level, along with increasing international demand from key importing countries.
At the same time, global trends – ongoing consolidations, the transferral of production to low cost economies, increasing operational efficiency, and process streamlining – are leading to lower global metals prices, impacting the efficiency of Russian enterprises.
In order to remain competitive, Russian metal & mining companies need to bring about large-scale changes aimed at increasing the sustainability of business models based on M&A, the implementation of projects and investment management, the optimisation of processes, and the settingup of continuous improvement systems.
