Russia’s accession to the WTO resulted in the decrease of a machinery import duty to 5%, while engine power restrictions were lifted. Thus, foreign manufacturers obtained significant competitive advantages.
In 2011, main sectors of the Russian farm machinery industry exhibited a strong growth, buoyed by the healthy state of the Russian agricultural industry and favorable market forecasts.
In January 2013, production of combine harvesters in Russia dropped as compared to the same period a year earlier. Output of tractors in January 2013 has also decreased. The most significant reduction was observed in the sector of four-wheel drive tractors.
Thus, sales of Russian agricultural machinery still show negative dynamics. Industry and market participants appraise the situation as critical.
In January 2013, plough production in Russia fell as compared to the same month of 2012. The output of turn ploughs dropped, while production of reversible and chisel ploughs increased. In January-December 2012, production of soil preparation machinery also decreased.
Negative production trend was shown by harrow and cultivators output in January-November 2012.
One of the most significant problems of the farm machinery sector in Russia is the difference between production and supply levels. Large surplus stocks of unsold farm machinery can be found with the following entities: Rostselmash JSC, Bryanskselmash, Claas Ltd, Svetlogradagromash JSC, SibzavodAgro Ltd., Millerovoselmash JSC, Gryazinsky Cultivator Factory, Sasovkormmash JSC.
In order to raise the competitive status of the Russian farm machinery sector, some state regulatory measures with respect to foreign trade operations could be implemented to give certain benefits. The Russian farm machinery sector requires efficient and well-established legal and regulatory framework, which will help to modernize the sector.
