Prices for household appliances in Russia will rise by 13-15% next year. Power tools will rise in price by 11%, electronics - by 9%.

As reported "News" with reference to a member of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Alexei Fedorov, this may happen after the introduction of a ban on the export of scrap and waste containing precious metals. The Russian government plans to introduce such a ban from January 1, 2022 for six months. 

It is believed that this measure will increase the utilization of the production capacities of domestic refineries, prevent the export of raw materials with a high content of precious metals under the guise of low-content ones, and also increase tax revenues to the country's budget.

Over the past year, prices for home electronics for the year have already increased by an average of 10-15%. The rupture of the global supply chains due to the pandemic, the rise in prices for container transportation, and the suspension of factories for the production of various parts in China and other countries for several months led to a rise in the price of goods. Experts believe that next year, the rise in prices for appliances and electronics will continue.
