Not so long ago, Russian manufacturers of building materials from wood joyfully reported on the conquest of the European market. It should be noted that this kind of statements were still not groundless: Russian wood products made in factories built in Russia by foreign firms for money of foreign investors and foreign technologies, contrary to the widespread opinion of liberal citizens about the “wrong people” it turned out no worse than in Europe. And since there were enough forests and capacities for the time being, and the price, in general, was slightly lower than European, Russian docks, Russian plywood and Russian chipboard managed to win a large market share in a number of European countries.
Now, apparently, the long -suffering Russian market awaits the “reverse side of globalization”. Inside the country, our manufacturers now do not have enough advantages for foreign manufacturers for comfortable business. So, in such a traditionally “local” segment as the production of a reproductive board, an imported product is increasingly preferred. And this is despite the fact that the floor board from larch, for example, is much better than domestic production.
Despite a sufficient amount of this kind of examples to say about the prospect that Russian boards will still not have to be replaced from the market. Just the European part of the Russian Federation, it seems, nevertheless, begins to become a full component of the European economy. Or, at least, a full partner.
