PVC imports to Ukraine fell by 20% in 2021, exports up by 23%

January 20/2022
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 20% in 2021, compared to the same period in 2020 and reached about 26,700 tonnes. Export sales of Ukrainian PVC rose by 23% year on year, with Turkey accounting for the largest export volumes, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market dropped to 1,200 tonnes from 2,600 tonnes in November, Ukrainian companies seasonally reduced their shipments of polymer from Europe. Overall imports of suspension PVC reached 26,700 tonnes in 2021, compared to 33,400 tonnes a year earlier.

Limited export quotas and record high prices from European and North American producers were the main reason for such a serious drop in import volumes. European producers with the share of about 88% of the total imports over the stated period were the key suppliers of resin to the Ukrainian market.

Last month, Karpatneftekhim increased the volume of external sales, the export sales of Ukrainian PVC amounted to 16,300 tonnes against 15,100 tonnes in November. Overall, about 191,700 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in 2021, compared to 155,300 tonnes a year earlier.
