Development of Moscow industry
Moscow is one of the largest industrial production centers in Russia. More than three thousand enterprises operate on the territory of the city, including more than 700 large and medium-sized ones.
The share of Moscow enterprises in the total volume of industrial production in Russia is on average 13 percent and about 45 percent in the volume of industrial production in the Central Federal District.
Manufacturing forms the basis of the capital’s industrial sector (75 percent). They provide over 16 percent of the city’s gross regional product.
The following industries are leading in terms of the number of enterprises in Moscow:
– radio electronics and instrument making (615 enterprises);
– printing industry (277 enterprises);
– production of building materials (244 enterprises);
– chemical industry (243 enterprises);
– light industry (243 enterprises);
– general mechanical engineering, including the production of food processing equipment, road construction and agricultural machinery (223 enterprises);
– food industry (217 enterprises);
– production of consumer goods (215 enterprises);
– metalworking (181 enterprises);
– medical industry (126 enterprises).
As for the high-tech defense industry, more than 300 defense manufacturing and research enterprises are located in Moscow. They work in the field of aircraft construction, space, instrumentation, radio electronics, and nuclear energy.
For eight months of this year, the volume of industrial production in Moscow increased by almost 25 percent compared to the same period in 2020. In the country, this figure increased by 4.5 percent.
The most significant growth was recorded in the light industry: the production of textiles increased 2.1 times. Production of paper and paper products increased by 95 percent due to a shift in sales volumes to the online segment. Delivery services have become more in demand, as well as the use of cardboard packaging instead of plastic.
The production of electrical equipment increased by 77.7 percent, mainly due to the active updating of the information infrastructure by mobile operators. Food production increased by 28.2 percent. This is primarily due to an increase in the production of semi-finished meat products and flour confectionery products of short storage.
Traditionally, significant growth has been observed in the production of chemicals and products. This segment grew by 41.6 percent due to an increase in the production of detergents, cleaning and polishing products, shaving products, deodorants and skin care products.
The production of the pharmaceutical industry increased by 37.3 percent. At the same time, the volume of shipment of finished products in monetary terms has doubled – from 97 to 195 billion rubles.
Moscow remains the leader among the constituent entities of the Russian Federation in terms of the volume of non-resource non-energy exports (NOE). In the first half of 2021, Moscow’s NOE increased by 31.5 percent and amounted to $ 15.38 billion (18.5 percent of Russia’s NOE).
Metropolitan products are supplied to 175 countries. The main importers are the United States, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Germany and China, accounting for over 40 percent of Moscow’s NOE.
Almost 90 percent of Moscow supplies abroad are industrial products. These are mainly mechanical equipment and machinery, electrical equipment and their parts, including telecommunications equipment, various plastic products.
Since 2016, the Moscow Government has been implementing a large-scale program to support investors in the real sector of the economy.
Enterprises actively investing in the development and modernization of their production facilities can obtain the status of an industrial complex, technopark or anchor resident. This will reduce the burden on regional taxes (for example, on profits or property) by 17-25 percent. A similar support mechanism is in place for new investment projects.
Among other measures to support industrial and innovative territories:
– targeted subsidies (interest on a loan, leasing, and so on);
– preferential rates of land rent;
– concessional loans from two to five percent per annum for up to five years;
– provision of additional guarantees for loans;
– organizational and consulting support.
At the moment, about 130 enterprises are eligible for benefits, the total investment of which over the past five years has amounted to about 100 billion rubles. In particular, 61 organizations have been assigned the status of an industrial complex, employing more than 70.1 thousand people.
The Moscow government is supporting projects to create five new large industrial plants and the Nizhniye Kotly industrial park.
Five more new factories for the production of medicines, medical equipment and baby food will be built using the offset contract mechanism (private investment in the creation of production under the guarantee of the purchase of products for state needs).
A special economic zone (SEZ) has been created in the capital Technopolis Moscow… About 200 high-tech enterprises operate at its five production sites in Pechatniki and Zelenograd. The volume of investments of SEZ residents exceeded 50 billion rubles.
37 technoparks, in which 2,070 companies operate and more than 67,000 jobs have been created, also have tax benefits. In addition, six investment projects for the creation of new technoparks are receiving support.
Thanks to the government support program, new industrial enterprises have been created in Moscow, producing robotic installations, smart chips, 3D printers, advanced composite materials, medical equipment and world-class pharmaceutical products.
For example, on the territory of the SEZ Technopolis Moscow the first in Russia plant for the production of high-speed industrial robots is being built in Pechatniki. The new production facility is also being created by one of the technopolis residents – the Bitrobotics company. Industrial robots can quickly move, stack and pack goods, and solve non-standard tasks. The plant will have an annual capacity of about 100 robotic systems.
On the site of the SEZ “Alabushevo” in Zelenograd, a new pharmaceutical plant was built – CJSC “Biocad”. Also, new buildings are being built there for the R-Opra company (R-Pharm Group of Companies). It is planned to produce 56 drugs for the treatment and prevention of endocrine, oncological, cardiological and other diseases on 13 lines.
The production of electric buses is organized on the territory of the Sokolnichesky Carriage Repair and Construction Plant (SVARZ). In the future, SVARZ will become one of the largest enterprises for the production and maintenance of electric vehicles in Russia. It is planned to produce up to 700 electric buses per year.
In the south of the capital, ITELMA-BusinessStroy is implementing a large-scale investment project for the construction of an engineering building. Together with the previously built innovative production and laboratory buildings, it will become a place for the development and testing of prototypes of electronic products and components for enterprises of the domestic automotive and aviation industries.
Industrial operations during the COVID-19 pandemic
During the pandemic, the Moscow industry was able to quickly organize the production of products necessary to counter the spread of infection. These are special fabrics for protective suits of medical workers, medical equipment, antiseptics, masks, building materials and more.
For example, the manufacturer of professional clothing and dance shoes Grishko has partially switched from making pointe shoes to producing medical shoe covers.
The Coca-Cola company has mastered the production of protective plastic screens for the face, and Faberlik – antiseptics. The manufacturer of the uninterruptible power supply system “Parus Electro” began to produce masks, and the manufacturer of boilers and gas equipment “Pyromant” launched the production of components for artificial lung ventilation devices and sanitizers.
Some companies have radically changed their profile or offered innovative products to the market. For example, consumables for ventilators were printed on 3D printers. Another developer of equipment for the oil industry has launched wastewater disinfection devices for new hospitals.
Food industry enterprises supplied food to city hospitals, and also helped to complete gift sets for Muscovites who are in self-isolation.
Art quarter next to Winzavod
In recent years, the quarter near the Kursk railway station has become one of the main points of attraction for creative industries. The Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art and the Artplay Design Center are located here.
The decision on the comprehensive improvement of the art quarter was made in 2020. Work began in September 2020 and ended in July 2021.
