EXPORT-IMPORT OF MAGNESIUM IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, 1997-2014
Before 2004 the volume of exported Russian-made commercial magnesium was more than 90%, the peak of export deliveries being fixed that year at 42,000 tons.
In May 2004 the United States launched an anti-dumping investigation initiated by US Magnesium LLC against Russian magnesium deliveries. As a result, an anti-dumping duty was introduced in the amount of 21.71% for VSMPO-Avisma, 18.65% for Solikamsk Magnesium Works and 21.01% for the remaining Russian manufacturers and exporters.
Despite abolition of the anti-dumping duty in 2007, export of Russian magnesium fell to 24.4 thousand tons, and reduced exports continued in subsequent years--in 2014 the volume of magnesium shipments to foreign consumers was 3,000 tons. Export share for 2014 was equal to 15.6% of the commercial magnesium output.
