An Overview of Russian Exports, Russian exports are varied. Oil and fuels account for half of its total exports. Other goods include wood, iron, steel, precious metals, and energy. Russia supplies 25% of Germany’s needs for palladium, chromium, and cadmium. Read on for an overview of Russian exports and its role in the global economy. And learn how the country uses its natural resources to benefit other nations.
Russia’s largest exports are fuels and oil
Fuels and oil account for the bulk of Russia’s exports. In terms of oil and gas, the country is the biggest consumer and exporter. In 2017, Russia exported 11.3 billion barrels of oil, which is more than double its entire production in just one year. In 2018, Russia exported coal and natural gas to OECD countries, which accounted for 54 percent of all oil and gas shipments. Natural gas and coal are both heavily consumed in Europe, particularly in the United States, which imported just one third of all Russian oil.
Russia’s second-largest exports are wood, precious metals, iron, and steel
Russia’s largest exports are fuels and oil, with the second-largest items being wood, iron, steel, and precious metals. Other large exports include agricultural products, industrial machinery, and semi-finished iron, which brings in around $7 billion. Other large exports are nickel, titanium, and aluminum, and cereals, with each contributing about 1% of the country’s total exports.
Russia provides 25% of German imports of palladium and chromium and cadmium
Germany depends on Russian gas and oil for one-third of its energy. Without gas from Russia, Germany would need to find other sources of energy, or shift its economic mix to reduce its demand for fossil fuels. The macroeconomic fallout will depend on how Germany is able to substitute imported raw materials. The impacts on GDP will range from small to significant, depending on the substitute-ability of imported raw materials and the production structure. Nonetheless, even with an unplanned 30% shortfall in gas imports, Germany’s GDP would still decline by 0.5% to 3%, and the effects would likely be manageable.
Russia exports energy
The Russian Federation has one of the largest energy markets in the world, with its oil and natural gas revenues making up nearly half of the federal budget in 2021. It is the third largest crude oil producer in the world, behind Saudi Arabia and the United States. Energy revenues are critical to the Russian economy, and Russia exports energy to a number of countries for use in domestic and foreign markets. Here are some interesting facts about Russia’s energy production.
Russia exports lead
In 2016, Russia exported a record $491 billion worth of goods to the world, topping the United States by value. The Netherlands accounted for seven percent of this total, with a small contribution from oil exports. The United Kingdom and Germany accounted for six and five percent, respectively. Belarus and Ukraine were second and third in value in 2016. However, Russia’s lead is being challenged by rising trade tensions between the two countries. In addition, Russia exports significant quantities of grain to its neighboring Eurasian Economic Union, which has imposed sanctions against the country.
Russia exports vanadium
As one of the world’s leading producers of vanadium, Russia has a significant export potential. In 2011, Russia exported 8,670.9 tonnes of ferro-vanadium, a fifty percent increase over the year before. Russia’s biggest vanadium producer, Vanady Tula, has concentrated on ferro-vanadium production, spurring a rise in exports. Currently, Russia exports vanadium oxides and hydroxides, which are used in automobiles and other industries.
Russia exports gold
There are several reasons why Russia exports gold to the United Kingdom. For one, it has a large gold reserve, which amounts to $100 billion to $140 billion – about 20% of its central bank reserves. For another, the Russian government is worried about the value of its currency, so the country has been buying gold on the domestic precious metals market. But what is driving this increase? Is it a new trend or are there more fundamental reasons?
