TC Bromine’s plans for 2020


2020 will be a breakthrough year for TC Bromine. In its second quarter, the first phase of the new sodium bromide plant in Krasnokamsk will reach the full capacity. The company plans to sell more than 5,000 tons of sodium bromide in both domestic and international markets in this year.In 2020, the company plans to enter new markets and expand its customer base.

The bromine production market is highly concentrated. This is due to the dependency of the production on natural bromine deposits and their limited worldwide locations. Due to these natural barriers for the new players and growing demand, the capacity utilization of the largest sodium bromide plants is almost 100%. In 2020 this environment will allow TC Bromine to:

  • effectively expand the customer base
  • increase sales
  • develop an investment program

On top ot that the company plans to develop supplies of new products - calcium bromide, zinc bromide, ammonium bromide.
