London, United Kingdom, 2007/10/05 - New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Strategic Analysis of Chinese Vehicle Manufacturers in Russia: Implications for the Russian Automotive Market, estimates that the total turnover of the Chinese OEMs in Russia in 2006 was €0.20 billion.
Chinese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have overcome a sluggish start in the Russian automotive market to account for 1.2 percent of the total passenger vehicle market in 2006. Having successfully adapted to the Russian market, Chinese OEMs can use their accrued experience about vehicles sales features, consumer perception of quality and safety and interior and exterior design to enter global markets.

“Chinese OEMs are looking forward to ramifying operations in all market segments of the Russian market,” notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Andriy Ivchenko. “Focusing initially on sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and pick-up market segments in 2005, Chinese OEMs expanded their product line and achieved considerable sales in A and C market segments in 2006.”
Chinese vehicle manufacturers score over their competitors with their low-priced products. However, because low-cost vehicles do not match the quality of their international counterparts, Chinese vehicle manufactures will have to focus on quality to maintain their advantage and continue expanding.
Chinese vehicles are also perceived to have lower safety standards, which is a huge deterrent in a market that has to constantly cater to customer demands for higher quality, reliability and safety of vehicles. Superior cost of ownership and high-quality vehicles will go a long way in helping the Chinese OEMs penetrate other segments of the Russian automotive market.
“Chinese OEMs have already demonstrated their ability to improve all aspects of their products in a very short period,” notes Ivchenko. “Local assembly of select Chinese brands in Russia will strengthen their market position and intensify competition in certain market segments.”
Chinese OEMs can also take heart from the increasing prices of Russian car models and the Russian Government’s active support of its automotive industry. They are looking to sign an agreement with the Ministry of Economic Development to obtain investment and import benefits. Moreover, the high tariffs on imported used vehicles compel consumers to buy new low-cost vehicles produced or assembled locally, boosting the market for Chinese OEMs.
