Motivation ECE

Anti-dumping investigation was initiated by LLC "Sollers-Yelabuga."

What is this company? "Sollers-Yelabuga" — a full-scale production facility in the special economic zone "Alabuga" (Tatarstan), launched in 2008. On a total area of about 200,000 square meters. meters deployed production FIAT Ducato commercial vehicles and trucks Isuzu. Capacity of the complex is 120,000 vehicles per year. Under one roof with car park is created and manufactures automotive components suppliers. In addition to the basic mass-produced versions are already available in ambulances and reanimation, school buses, taxis and cars on the basis of social FIAT Ducato.

The results of the investigation showed that during the period from 2008 to 2011 the volume of imports of light commercial vehicles in Germany, Italy and Turkey increased by 23.2%, despite a decline in total imports of such vehicles in the Customs Union is 29.1%.

During the investigation of these cars were delivered to the TC at dumping prices. The share of dumped imports in the total import of light commercial vehicles in the TC has risen steadily: in particular, in 2011 it amounted to 95.4%, an increase of 40.5 percentage points compared to 2008. The average price for light commercial vehicles from Germany, Italy and Turkey decreased in 2011 compared to 2008 by 9.5%.

The investigation revealed that the growth of consumption of these vehicles in the CU in 2011 compared to 2009 was 3.7 times the rate of growth of production and sales in the TS in 2010 and 2011, significantly lagged behind the growth rate of the dumped imports. The share of such cars produced vehicle in the amount of consumption has declined in 2009-2011. by 20.1 percentage points; profit industries TC decreased in 2010 compared to 2009 by 17%, and in 2011, the TC sector of the economy has suffered a loss, profitability was negative.

In the same period the cost of production in the TS increased by 42.7%, while sales prices — only 6.4%, which was caused by attempts to remain competitive amid growing dumped imports.

By the way, was originally supposed to take similar action with respect to cars vysheoboznachennyh classes of Poland, but in the course of the investigation it was found that in 2008-2011. the volume of imports of machinery there was less than 1% of the total imports of such vehicles, and Poland was excluded from the investigation.

Comments of experts

The introduction of fees in respect of a number of cars produced in Germany, Italy and Turkey, the industry estimates generally positive.

For example, the deputy chief editor of "Driving"Igor Morzharettohighlights,
that the decision ECE — a good sign, because the Russian market took advantage of the fact that it is in the WTO, and was able to some extent to protect themselves:

"Until today, GAS is a 50% market share. Sollers, which collects vans and light trucks, too, is, and will hold a decent market share. They increased their sales — I do not know, but in any case, its market share will remain. "

The Executive Director of the agency "Autostat"Sergei Oudalovbelieves that raising taxes will affect the price of imported cars, so in the end will get a competitive advantage cars that are manufactured in the countries of the Customs Union:

"Thus, there will be redistribution of the market between car brands. From a purely Russian car manufacturers can win"GAS"But now they do not occupy a different niche and are in a different price weight, so serious redistribution in their favor can not happen … But in general, this situation could be an incentive to open new auto assembly plants in the territory of the Customs Union"
