The Russian electrical market has a volume of approx. 4 billion Euros and ranks fourth in Europe in terms of turnover, right behind Germany, France and Italy.  The market is very well organized from west to east and guarantees manufacturers a nationwide introduction and marketing of their products. A peculiarity of the Russian market is certainly that a relatively small number of wholesalers account for 3/4 of all branches.

Use your full potential and with our survey the Russian market is no new territory for you from the beginning.

EMR has set itself the task of reporting on the various electrical markets as comprehensively as possible. After a long preparation time, we can now present our new RUSSIA survey, which incidentally fits perfectly with our recently published EUROPE survey.
