Between January and June 2020, Russia imported 15.2 bln RUB worth of veterinary drugs (customs clearance and VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 5% higher than in 2019, and 21.2 bln RUB worth of feed supplements, with the dynamics of +17% in monetary terms.
The June results seriously changed the dynamics of the import of veterinary drugs for the period between January and June. The dynamics of the import of veterinary drugs were +36%, with the import volume of 3.9 bln RUB, and +34% and 4.1 bln RUB for feed supplements./p>
The dynamics in physical terms (units) for the period were -6.5% for veterinary drugs and +7.1% for feed supplements. After comparing the dynamics in monetary and physical terms, we can see significant price increases within corresponding product groups. However, in June the dynamics in physical terms were much different from those in monetary (+31% for veterinary drugs and +1.6% for feed supplements).
Vethellas Holding (Greece) has record-worthy dynamics (imports grown by 30 times) among the top 50 manufacturers of veterinary drugs. The company imported only two trademarks to Russia this year: antibacterials for livestock Pecivet and Mulivet. Dopharma (Netherlands) also has high dynamics; the company’s imports have grown by 10.5 times. Like Vethellas Holding, the company imports antibacterials for livestock, with Fenoxipen accounting for the largest volume. Unfortunately, no such records have been registered for manufacturers of drugs for pets over the period.
Ajinomoto Group (France) has the best dynamics among the top 50 manufacturers of feed supplements; the company’s imports have grown by nearly 14 times. It imported three amino acids: L-Lysine, L-Tryptophan, and L-Valine. Andres Pintaluba (Spain) also has high dynamics (import grown by 3.9 times). The company imported vitamin-containing products Apsavit, in particular Retinol Acetate, Vitamin D3, Folate, etc.
