Petrochemicals Production

Petrochemicals Production

«Tatneft-Neftekhim» Management Company and a complex of enterprises constitute the Company’s petrochemicals production segment:

The volumes of production and sales of the TATNEFT’s tyre manufacturing complex at the Russian market remained stable - about 9-10 million tyres in 2012-2017, that is, currently, TATNEFT products account for about 20% of the Russian tyre market. In general, the volume of the Russian tyre market declined: from the peak of 62.3 million tyers in 2012 to 51.3 million tyres in 2017 as a result of a slowdown in economic growth in the Russian Federation.

After a decline that has continued since 2014, the Russian market for tyre products grew by 18% in 2017 from the previous year level and amounted to 51.3 million tyres in quantitative terms. The tyre-manufacturing complex of the Company sold 13.1 million tyres in 2017. This sales volume was the maximum result in the history of the Nizhnekamsk tyre-manufacturing complex. Compared to the previous year, the sales increased by 1.1 million tyres, or by 9%. Despite this, the market share of Nizhnekamsk tyre products in the domestic market decreased slightly (less than 1%) for the year and amounted to 19.3%. Therefore, the tyre-manufacturing complex of PJSC TATNEFT remains a key player in the Russian tyre market.

The Russian tyre market is characterized by a high proportion of imported products. However, due to the devaluation of the Russian currency, foreign manufacturers are seeking to localize their production in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Remaining the leader of the Russian market, the Company's tyre complex plans to modernize and expand existing production facilities in order to retain its positions, with a focus on promising market niches: SSC and specialty tyres, as well as modern tyres of the sub-premium price segment of the Viatti brand.

Enterprises of the PJSC TATNEFT’s petrochemical complex manufactured 13 million tyres in 2017 and produced 134 thousand tonnes of carbon black. JSC "Nizhnekamsktehuglerod" produces 14 grades of carbon black.

OOO "Kama" Trading House sells tyre products. By the end of 2017, the total annual sales of tyres amounted to 13.1 million tyres.
