This report is the 12th edition of the tungsten market research in Russia and the CIS.

Market monitoring has been conducted since 1999.
The purpose of the study is to analyze the market of tungsten concentrates, tungsten anhydride and ammonium paratungstate, ferrotungsten and tungsten metal from the CIS countries, as well as their redistribution chains in non-ferrous metallurgy, ferrous metallurgy, lighting industry. The situation in the world market of tungsten and its raw materials is briefly considered.

The objects of investigation are tungsten ores, tungsten concentrates (scheelite and wolframite), paratungstate, tungsten anhydride, ferrovolphram and metallic tungsten.

This work is a desk study. As sources of information were used the data of the Federal State Statistics Service, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, the statistics of railway transportations of the Russian Federation, the Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Statistics, the State Customs Service of Ukraine; The materials of the US State Geological Service (USGS), the data of the UNdata database, the sectoral and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, as well as Internet sites of producers of tungsten raw materials, ferrotungsten and tungsten metal are used.
Chronological framework of the study: 1999-2016; forecast - 2017-2025.

Geography of the study: The Russian Federation - a comprehensive detailed analysis of the market; Republic of Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan - general retrospective analysis of the market; The rest of the world - general information about the dynamics and characteristics of the market.
The report consists of 9 parts, contains 276 pages, including 70 figures, 112 tables and 1 appendix.

In the first chapter of the report, a brief description of the world market of tungsten raw materials and metallic tungsten (reserves, production, production, exports and imports of concentrate and metallic tungsten by country, prices) is given.

The second chapter of the report contains information on the tungsten mineral base in the CIS countries (in more detail in Russia), the structure of reserves and the characteristics of the main deposits.
In the third chapter, the dynamics of the production of W concentrate in Russia in 1996-2016, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan was considered. The current state of Russian and foreign GOKs producing tungsten concentrates is described. In addition, this chapter contains information on exports and imports of W concentrate in Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan. The balance of production and consumption of concentrates in Russia in 1999-2016 is separately examined.

The fourth chapter is devoted to the market of ammonium paratungstate (PVA) and tungsten anhydride. Data on production of this raw material in Russia and Uzbekistan are given. Details of Russian foreign trade operations with tungstates in 1999-2016. As well as the balance of production-consumption in this period.

The fifth chapter of the report describes the current state of industries that consume tungsten raw materials:
- production of ferrotungsten (major Russian producers, detailed analysis of Russian exports and imports of FeW);
- production, export and import of metallic tungsten in the CIS (description of the main Russian and Ukrainian producers, analysis of Russian and Ukrainian foreign trade operations with various tungsten products).

The sixth chapter is devoted to Russian export-import prices for tungsten concentrate, anhydride, ferrovolphram, metallic tungsten in 1999-2016.

In the seventh chapter, brief characteristics of industries that consume ferrovolphram and metallic tungsten are given.

The eighth chapter reviews projects and investments in the tungsten industry of Russia and the CIS countries.

The ninth chapter - the forecast of production and consumption of tungsten raw materials (concentrate and anhydride) in Russia until 2025.

The annexes provide the address and contact information of the main enterprises that produce and consume tungsten raw materials.
The target audience of the study:
- participants in the market of tungsten concentrate and chains of its further consumption - producers, consumers, traders;
- potential investors.
The proposed study claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and specialists who make managerial decisions on the market of tungsten raw materials.
