PVC production in Russia grew 15% in 2017

January 16/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) grew in 2017 by 15% year on year, totalling 906,200 tonnes. Only two producers have grown resin production: SayanskKhimPlast and Kaustik (Volgograd), according to MRC ScanPlast.

December PVC production to Russia practically remained at the November"s level and was about 85,700 tonnes. Overall PVC production reached 906,200 tonnes in January-December 2017, compared to 785,500 tonnes a year earlier. Only two plants out of four have increased output, and such a high level of output growth this year was a result of the low stocks of 2016.

The structure of PVC production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

RusVinyl (JV SIBUR and SolVin) last month reduced the capacity utilisation, the enterprise produced about 29,700 tonnes of emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) in December, of which about 3,300 tonnes of emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC), against 28,500 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, RusVinyl"s overall production of resin reached 312,700 tonnes in the twelve months of 2017, up by 2% year on year.

SayanskKhimPlast decreased capacity utilisation in December, having produced about 24,800 tonnes of suspension PVC (SPVC) compared to 26,200 tonnes a month earlier. SayanskKhimPlast managed to manufacture 263,500 tonnes of resin in January-December 2017, compared to 142,800 tonnes a year earlier (last year"s low production was caused by a forced long outage from mid-February to July 2016).

Bashkir Soda Company produced 23,100 tonnes of SPVC last month versus 22,600 tonnes in November. The plant"s output of resin totalled about 243,000 tonnes in the first twelve months of 2017, compared to 248,700 tonnes a year earlier. The plant"s lower output was largely caused by the forced shutdown in August because of problems with the supply of ethylene.

Kaustik Volgograd last month produced about 8,100 tonnes of SPVC, compared with 8,000 tonnes in November. The plant"s overall production of resin reached 87,000 tonnes over the stated period versus 88,500 tonnes a year earlier.
