With over 15 years of daily monitoring, obtaining insights into the Russian economy and its individual segments, INFOLine came upon an idea of creating a unique product - comprehensive research of the leading industries of the Russian economy.
The research was released in an innovative format - a convenient e-presentation: the optimal combination of key takeaways and messages, graphic materials (1000+ pictures, diagrams, tables), as well as hyperlinks to the most crucial regulatory documents and corporate websites.
Ratings of industrial companies, results of the market survey of the big-league businesses, an assessment of the current and anticipated business investments and fact sheets of top companies.
One (by methodology and structure) set of 7 (!) studies covers all key industries and markets of the Russian economy. The overview includes an outlook and development prospects for the next three years in the following areas:
Monitoring data from 5000 media, more than 30 thousand investment projects, a survey of thousands of representatives of leading Russian companies, materials of the Central Bank of Russia, the Federal State Statistics Service, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the Federal Agency for Construction and Housing, the Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending, the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation, the UN’s Comtrade Database, the portal of the Presidential Administration, the data of the Fund for Assistance to the Reform of the Housing and Communal Services under the auspices of the Russian Ministry of Energy, the Federal Customs Service, the common interdepartmental information and statistical system, the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), etc.
Relevance of the research “Russia’s construction industry. Development prospects in 2017–2019”. Russia’s construction industry faces one of the most challenging periods in its history. By the 1990s, the country ramped up its construction rates: 72.8 M sq. m of housing was built in 1987, and the homebuilding volumes dropped more than twofold – to 30.3 M sq. m 13 years later. Then, after the recovery from 2009 economic recession, the demand for homes surged, while the development of mortgage lending boosted the multi-storey home sales: 84.2 M sq. m of housing was built in 2014 and 85.3 M sq. m in 2015, hitting Russia’s all-time high. After the record-high homebuilding volumes of 2015, the market began to slip into decline, which exceeded 6% in 2016 and persists in 2017. Similar trends are observed in non-residential construction, where the only construction segment with the upward trend in investments and output of facilities is that in the farming industry. To understand the reasons of the recurrent slump in the construction industry and how deep it will be, we have conducted a comprehensive research of the industry across all its segments. This product will help you to compare the development pace and the performance of your company with the industry’s indicators and market leaders, evaluate the big-league companies in the industry included in the rating and define your priorities of business development.
The research provides a detailed analysis of the industry, as well as features:
Russia features the most extensive transport network in the world, but its significant drawback is the radial pattern shaped historically by the political evolution of the country as a strongly centralized state. Ill-placed waterways, building-stone resources (for cartways and motor roads) rather far from communities, long distances, as well as the full nationalization of the USSR's economy all caused the overgrowth of the Russian railways against other modes of transport. The Russian railways are still regulated by the government as a "natural monopoly". In 2015, it was resolved to draw up a crucial document guiding the railway sector development - the Target Model of Railway Freight Market up to 2020, but the document was still in progress by the end of H1 2017.
The condition of the transport industry is strongly linked to the state of affairs in other areas - for example, the performance of freight generating industries produces a dramatic ripple effect on haulage, - and with macroeconomic highlights. For example, the sanctions slapped against Russia in 2014 shook the freight market, moreover, the food embargo took its toll on the refrigerated trucking of groceries from Europe. Simultaneously, freight volume to the member countries of the Customs Union and Asia soared. The new reality has made shippers scale back on transportation and logistics costs. The structure of transport and logistics flows has also changed - in some routes it has become more cost-effective to use motor transport instead of railways, on others - sea transport instead of air freight. The stirred up coal exports featured in 2017 factored in the railway freight dynamics. The growth of coal and grain exports in 2017 also increased transshipment of dry cargo in the Russian seaports. The liquid bulk cargo via Russian seaports rose against the backdrop of growing crude oil exports.
In addition to the detailed analysis of the industry, the research features:
Russia’s farming industry faces a period of strong growth. The food embargo and ruble devaluation in 2014-2015 spurred business development in the farming and food industry. Thus, companies seek to occupy vacant niches as soon as possible. Weak competition and substantial government support of the industry ensured the best conditions for the development of domestic enterprises.
Russian manufacturers ramp up own production, both in their usual and in new categories, taking niches previously occupied by imports. In addition, the weak ruble makes Russian goods attractive and competitive in foreign markets, opening up new opportunities for domestic enterprises. Besides traditional export categories, such as grain and sunflower oil, domestic producers have embarked on sugar and poultry exports. Russian farms have increased their share in the export of cereals in the global market, beating out the United States in this indicator and coming out on top in the world in terms of volume.
As a result of 2017, the farming output grew by 2.4% year-on-year. The gross harvest of grain, according to preliminary data, hit 134.1 M tons (weight after processing), which is 11.2% more than in the previous year.
Livestock breeding grew in three main areas in 2017. Thus, the production of livestock and poultry for slaughter (live weight) increased by 4.7% and amounted to almost 14.6 M tons. Milk production in Russia increased by 1.2%, and eggs by 2.8% in 2016.
The farming industry of Russia is growing for the third consecutive year being a driver of the entire country’s economy. To obtain in-depth insights into the industry and understand how and in which areas it will develop further, we have conducted comprehensive research of the farming industry, food production and food market. This product will help you to determine the position of your company relative to the pace of the industry and define your future business development.
In addition to the detailed analysis of the industry’s development, the research features:
Food production in Russia faces a period of fast-paced development and has been one of the drivers of industrial production in the last 3 years. Due to the embargo imposed in 2014 on many food categories sourced from the United States, the EU, Canada, Australia and Norway, Russia had to rebuild its import of foods, as well as actively develop the food industry. The challenging macroeconomic situation seriously weakened the ruble: the price of foreign equipment and raw materials skyrocketed for Russian producers. This also gave strong impetus for the development of agriculture and food production.
The food production in Russia grew by 5.6% in 2017 as compared to 2015, while the turnover of businesses engaged in food manufacture, while the production of beverages decreased by 1%.
The further development of the Russian food industry will feature a fall in real incomes and, consequently, low purchasing power, which will result in greater production and consumption of cheap domestic products.
In order to analyze the condition of the industry in detail and understand how and in which areas it will develop further, we conducted a comprehensive study of the food industry and the food market. With the help of the offered product, you will be able to determine the position of your company regarding the dynamics of the industry and outline possible ways of business development.

In addition to the detailed analysis of Russian industry’s development, the research features:
Russia's fuel and energy industry is gaining momentum every year: new oil and gas fields are commissioned, innovative technologies in HC production and processing are firmly underway, companies expand the infrastructure of oil, gas and petrochemicals transportation, build new power plants. Fueled by political events, major changes in the energy industry are taking place in the global arena: on the one hand, large investment projects are being rolled out, such as the construction of the Turkish Stream and Nord Stream-2 gas pipelines, which will help Russia to bypass Ukraine, the Arctic oil resources are being developed. On the other hand, the big-league oil-exporting countries cut oil output in 2017 for the first time in 8 years in order to back up oil prices. Many international deals in the energy sector are closed: Rosneft sold 19.5% of its shares to investors from Switzerland and Qatar; Bashneft finalized the asset swap and purchase with Indian companies; Novatek actively raises funds for its LNG projects from new investors from Japan, Italy and France, Gazprom is rolling out Nord Stream-2 project backed up by partners from Germany, France and Holland.
The research provides a detailed analysis of business activity in Russia’s fuel and energy industry, as well as features:
The events of 2014, steep ruble devaluation, slapped embargo on EU food products and, as a result, big price spikes in the consumer market, falling purchasing power caused dramatic deterioration in the industry.
The retail turnover in kind lost 10% in 2015. In 2016, the downward trend persisted: the retail turnover in kind dropped 4.6% to 28.3 tn. RUB by the end of the year. In 2017, the decline in the retail turnover slowed, during 5 months of 2017 the retail turnover in kind shrank by 0.8% (in the same period of 2016, the decline reached 4.9%). The consumer behavior changed in 2015-2016: Russians began to save more and tried to become more rational and savvy in their spending. It is crucial that this is not a temporary phenomenon triggered by the crisis, but a new paradigm for the development of the industry and the society for the next 3-5 years.
Nevertheless, the revenue of most big-league retailers included in INFOLine Retail Russia TOP-100 is demonstrating double-digit growth. Those ranked in the TOP-100 of Russian retail opened 12,000 new stores with 3.4 M sq. m selling space in 2016. This is a new high in terms of expansion in Russia.
In order to understand the pace of recovery in the retail market and future expectations, we conducted a comprehensive research of the industry covering all its segments. With the help of this product, you will be able to determine the position of your company regarding the development trends in the industry and plan possible ways of business growth.
The bedrock of the retail market is purchasing power. The macroeconomic events of 2014, ruble's steep fall and the food embargo took their toll on the industry. The retail turnover is falling both in the food and non-food segments.
Such trends in the food retail turnover make the retail chains selling goods at a price close to wholesale - discounters - most well placed, with federal chains whose branding and formats are well-known across the country demonstrating the best performance. But they also have to reorganize their stores and wind down low-profit points of sale.
In the non-food retail segment, some companies take their business online. Many stores shift to e-commerce as an alternative to offline sales, some brands appear immediately online, and online stores with multiple brands are also established. The worldwide web is lucrative for the retail market in Russia due to immature tax laws, no need to purchase and rent real estate, reduced labor costs, which helps "virtual" stores to cut prices. Foreign online stores, especially Chinese and Korean websites, are also hitting big among Russians.
The consumer confidence index is gradually growing, and the retail turnover indicators are balanced. In order to understand the pace of recovery of the retail market and what to expect in the future, we conducted a comprehensive study of the industry covering all its segments. With the help of the offered product, you will be able to determine the position of your company regarding the dynamics of the industry and outline possible ways of business development.
