Chinas import of petrochemical products mostly declined in May

June 28/2011

(ICIS) -- Chinas import volumes of petrochemical products mostly declined in May as domestic demand continued to shrink, industry sources said on Monday.

Its naphtha imports fell 29% year on year to 107.201 tonnes, while propylene imports only reached 73,580 tonnes, down 32% compared to the same period last year, according to data from China Customs.

The country took in 55% less butadiene (BD) product in May at 7,269 tonnes from the previous corresponding period because of rising import prices, according to the data.


Its benzene imports were halved to 11,745 tonnes, while toluene imports fell by more than quarter to 47,194 tonnes, official data showed.
