The market place: reserved for many years to come
On the other hand, other chrome ore market prices are also strong. Turkey is the largest supply country of mainstream chrome ore lumps. And their chrome ore mining is reduced in winter period, so they do not have any chrome ore stocks on hand. They would like to raise their offers.
As the exhibition contractors admitted, before the fair started there was some hesitance due to trade sanctions being imposed unilaterally by US and threats by both China and Europe to retaliate. However, there were crowds of visitors registering and trying to enter the fair around midday at the very first day.
Over 900 exhibitors from 44 countries and regions exhibited their goods and services at the fair this year. Among them there were four Russian companies including JSC “Novotroitsk Plant of Chromium Compounds”, the regular exhibitor. Traditionally at their stand it was difficult to sit down and have any meaningful conversations for much of the time as enquiries were prevalent keeping exhibitors on their toes. The interest of the visitors was bent to Sodium Dichromate manufactured by JSC “NPCC” that is used for tanning agent production as well as to the tanning agent itself manufactured by Novochrom Ltd. – the faithful partner of JSC “NPCC”. Nevertheless other products of the brand NPCC wasn’t left unattended. Those who wished could not only to look into the specifications for all the range of the products offered by JSC “NPCC”, but to receive samples for labour tests at the stand as well.
There were plenty of themes to be discussed but the main one was surely the price policy of JSC “NPCC”. Though the buyers are optimistic about the chrome compounds prices they still find it is hard to make a deal. In the face of continuous rising price of raw materials some market participants expect the mines to release higher prices in the coming weeks.
As APLF is a barometer of the market place, one could draw the conclusion that the throngs of visitors were intent on finding what prices really were as lower prices tend to stimulate latent demand. However, the enthusiasm and throngs of visitors do not make sales or sign contracts. One of the fair reviews states that the plenty of bids and offers is almost a case of “never the twain shall meet” as buyers continued to hold out for lower prices as the hours of the fair ticked by. It is true that everyone wants to get some benefit from the deal but it doesn’t mean that the buyer and the seller can’t make a deal on mutually beneficial conditions. Such fairs and exhibitions support the market participants in sharing the helpful information and in negotiating the win-win deals. That’s how the management of JSC “NPCC” reasons and they don’t lose.

Getting ready to the upcoming year.
It’s coming a new year, a season when the companies are actively preparing to the upcoming year. Especially hot is the time before Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
The exhibition of chemistry and science “KHimya 2017” taken place in Moscow 24 to 26 October 2017 has received the highest rates among the professionals as well as at the government level. Prime Minister of Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev has commented the exhibition as following: “This oldest show of industry achievements has become an event of the world-class. It attracts the attention of specialists from Russia and abroad. As a tradition the exhibition is a great place to demonstrate the newest achievements of chemical industry, and mutually beneficial contracts are concluded”
JSC “NPCC” isn’t limited with only these goals but uses the opportunity provided with the exhibition in order to follow the tendencies of the chemical products market and to stay on its wave.
For its 20th anniversary, ACLE (29-31 August 2017, Shanghai) underscored not only the energy in Chinese market, but also a number of trends in both the domestic and international leather industries. As Michael Duck, Director of APLF Limited, has noticed, the exhibition ranks as one of the most importance events held in China in the leather industry. The participation in this exhibition gives to JSC “NPCC” another opportunity to show its success for the part year to the visitors and to find ideas for the further development.
The successful one was also the exhibition “SFChina” held 15 to 17 November 2017 in Shanghai. As the organizers say, it exceeded all expectations. Around 400 companies working in galvanic and surface treatment industry from 20 different countries have represented their products and services to the visitors; 85 companies from these numbers were the debutants on this exhibition. The total number of 2017 exhibitors represented a rise of 23% and 14% as compared to its 2016 Guangzhou and 2015 Shanghai editions. The visitors (there were over 11 000 people this year) evaluated the products of JSC “NPCC” on its merits and showed a lot of interest to them.
Meanwhile on 17 November 2017 the 23rd International industrial exhibition “Metal-Expo’2017” has finished with a great result. 530 companies from 35 countries around the world joined the exhibition this year. The exhibition was attended by about 29 thousand specialists from 60 countries, where a wide range of manufacturers and suppliers of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, equipment for metallurgy and metalworking, suppliers of raw materials for metallurgy and companies from metallurgical industries were presented.
The organizers of each exhibition have already summed up, and they talk about the excellent results of the work done. But the results of JSC "NCCP" participation in them will show up in the coming year. But already now it can be confidently asserted that they will justify all the company's expectations.

Going with the tide and turning the rocks of global economics.
In such uneasy times Hong Kong remains a constant place for business negotiations and searching for mutual and beneficial solutions face-to-face. That is why JSC “NPCC” have been taking part in APLF Leather & Materials+ held this year on 29-31 March.
Multiple discussions with the regular customers as well as meetings with some competitor companies and sharing useful information with each other always help to define the existing high points for each target local market, and to keep an ear to the ground of international market situation in general.
The APLF 2017 in Hong Kong furnished proof of strength of leather industry as many tannery factories not only hold their production capacity but also make plans to expend the production lines.
Meanwhile, another exhibition – Surtech 2017 – taken place on 29-31 March in Incheon, South Korea has become a brand new platform for JSC “NPCC” to explore the situation in coating and surface treatment industry. This industry was affected by the global price changes as well. Studying the news of the domestic market it can be said that yet the South Korea was hit hard by the global financial crisis its present economics can’t be called weak. Viewed from within the region South Korea demonstrates a meteoric rise and an assertive behavior on the market.
In sum, Asian market of Chrome chemicals develops with a murderous intensity what gives a good chance to turn the rocks of Chrome industry to all market players.

Sales must go on.
Nevertheless it hasn’t stopped the majority of them from joining the ChinaCoat 2016 & SFChina 2016 Fairs. From November, 30 to December, 2 representatives of different companies were having a chance not only of showing their product lines but of discussing the current market situation as well. Especially when there is a lot of topics to be discussed.
A weekly news magazine The Economist points that in about three last weeks the emerging-market currencies have been losing its ground. The yuan has fallen to its lowest level against dollar since 2008. India’s demonetization has destabilized the rupee on the international market. All the crises in Asian economics make business cooperation with this region slow.
During the fair the representatives of NPCC have met with their current partners and potential customers as well as with their competitors. In these uneasy times for chrome market the team of Novotroitsk plant notes with regret that even the strongest manufacturers can’t take a heat and have to freeze their production. But strategically thinking management of NPCC and their true-blue partners hold the factory on the top.
For the nth time NPCC have proved that nothing will stop them as well as their increasing sales volumes.

Feeling at home.
The regular exhibitors have noticed that this year showed up by the fewer representatives. “Perhaps, the world crisis has affected the business operation of some factories,” the representatives of JSC “NPCC” noted. “Nevertheless our company continues its steady production of chromium compounds and is ready to supply them on internal market as well as on international market”. Indeed the stand of the plant was much sought after by visitors and other exhibitors during the whole exhibition period.
It’s worth to say that despite the constant basis of participation in the exhibition and well-known company’s brand JSC “NPCC” has found new customers who showed an interest to company’s products as well as new suppliers of equipment.
At the end of the exhibition JSC “NPCC” was given the certification of regular exhibitor.

Looking for new ideas and technologies.
Constantly developing its production and expending the product line JSC “NPCC” explores its interest field. So, concentration on widening of the metallurgical goods had allowed the plant to join the International exhibition MMMM-2016 (Minerals, Metals, Metallurgy & Materials) scheduled on 8-12 August in New Delhi, India. As one of the most significant events on Indian minerals and metals market the exhibition serves a good platform for maintenance of successful business and its advance for resource companies, manufacturers, and traders.
The MMMM-2016 covers many industry segments which helps a lot with developing of current relationships and finding of new contacts. That was exactly what Novotroitsk Plant did. The MMMM-2016 admitted to JSC “NPCC” of studying Indian market of metals and minerals closely and opened brand new horizons for the company.
Inspired with the exhibition atmosphere and Indian spirit NPCC has turned back home with new ideas for further improving of its services.
