Review of the research

In this work you will find the research results of OSB market development in 2002-2004, including: the current state of affaires and general tendencies of OSB market development, OSB production, import-export, technological state and future trends of development in this segment of industry. Here there is the review of OSB consumption in Russia (it’s regional structure), consumer preferences and segments, main suppliers and importers of OSB. Texts are accompanied by a number of tables (7) and figures (22).


Main conclusions

§          In Russia the internal OSB market is only being formed nowadays, high prices of OSB don’t allow to compete with coniferous plywood.

§          The majority of respondents, potential consumers and distributors, are not well aware of the product quality, and its high prices keep their interest to it.

§          The exception is only Kaliningrad region that is the main consumer of OSB (about 40%) which are free imported From Europe. For the last 3 years distributors actively formed the board market, and at the current moment there is the deficiency of the product.

§          Practically all OSB consumption falls to the share of building industry. Furniture and packing industry don’t use OSB.

§          Moscow region being the largest market in individual house-building is the second largest importer of OSB after Kaliningrad region and it takes up 19,9% from the total import (in 2002-04 it accounted for 10 659.6 cubic meters).

§          OSB production launching and its appearance on the market at the price lower than the plywood’s will allow to increase OSB consumption up to 800 cubic meters per year by 2010 year.
