Analyst IK “ finam “ Vladislav Kochetkov notices that now the competition in the world market is high enough, however the Russian manufacturers have an advantage: they can buy some account components in home market more cheaply, than abroad. “ Manufacturers from the Peoples Republic of China, for example BYD, or the Chinese branches SANYO Electric Co which are capable to offer the buyer the low prices from - for smaller costs of labour, small transport and climatic costs " become the basic competitors of “AktTeha“, possibly; - the analyst marks. However, he adds that Yemen - the authoritative state, therefore, having received the contract, the Russian supplier will feel, most likely, it confident in the local market.
an analyst of IK BKS Alexander Voronov reminds that foreign autoconcerns gradually come to Russia with desire to construct the factories in the country: “ Toyota has already constructed the enterprise near St.-Petersburg. Taking into account expansion of a car market manufacturers AKB can increase the volumes at the expense of deliveries of production in the country “. Nevertheless the analyst notices that quality Russian AKB for the same Toyota should be at high level: “ The company puts billions in working out of one model. If the car rises from - for AKB, will abuse the car. Therefore it is necessary for any Russian manufacturer to correspond to level, and decent investments " are for this purpose necessary; - Alexander Voronov argues. Vladislav Kochetkov nevertheless considers that the export contract can be the additional quality proof of production and can provide stable inflow of means for development: “ the Competition in home market becomes aggravated, therefore export deliveries can appear and more profitable “.
