ALROSA is formulating marketing policy concept for the next three-year sales period

19 september 2016

In an interview with the company's corporate magazine Yuri Okoemov, Vice-President of ALROSA said that the Russia-based diamond miner is currently developing a concept of marketing policy for the coming three-year sales period, which is being formulated taking into account the experience of the past three years and the changing external environment.
"The main sales target for any major manufacturer is to sell its goods reaching maximum efficiency and top prices at the time of sale and in the medium term,” Yuri Okoemov said. “But speaking of our products, we must remember that ALROSA is one of the largest suppliers of rough diamonds in the world. The company's sales influence the global rough diamond market as a whole. Therefore, there are times when you have to adjust your goals in order to maintain stability in the global market sacrificing short-term profits for the sake of success in the long term."
Noting that the glut of polished goods in 2015 led to lower prices for rough and polished diamonds, Yuri Okoemov said that decreased supplies of rough helped to overcome the stagnation in the market and last year retailers finally spent their excessive inventories. "This year, we have seen strong demand for most categories of diamonds. During the first half of this year the company sold goods worth $ 2.6 billion, and it is obvious that the year-end sales results will be significantly better than in 2015. This is a good example of how we can stabilize the situation on the market taking into account the market share we have," ALROSA’s vice president said.
Yuri Okoemov did not disclose any details of ALROSA's sales policy for the next three-year period, but noted that in the future the company expects "to maintain its share of sales under long-term contracts at a level of not less than 70%."
