Other topics include main market players and volumes of production and further development plans; glass wool market size calculation, assessment of promising regions with regards to consumption; assessment of geographical location of production facilities of main market players and description of transportation of glass wool in Russia; glass wool prices per federal districts in Russia (June-July 2008); and SWOT-analysis of the market. The goal of the research is to analyze the market for glass wool, a product that is used mainly in construction. At present, domestic production dominates the glass wool market, with Russian products accounting for 77% of the market, and import 23%. Moreover, according to experts, the market is partially import-dependant. In 2005-2007, increase in volumes of construction led to growth of demand for heat-insulation, including glass wool, while Asian imports also grew during this period. Saint-Gobain is the leader in import volume, with 82% of all deliveries made, and most products coming from Finland. 12% imports are from Poland, 4% from The Czech Republic and less than 1% (in total) from China and the UK.
