PP imports to Russia fell by 4% in January-July 2017

August 18/2017
MOSCOW (MRC) - Russia"s imports of polypropylene (PP) decreased to about 92,600 tonne in first seven months of this year, down 4% year on year, compared to the same period of 2016. Not all PP grades accounted for the decrease in shipments, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

July imports of PP into Russia increased to 16,700 tonnes against 14,700 in June, the increase accounted only for homopolymer PP raffia grade from Central Asia. In general, PP imports into Russia totalled 92,600 tonnes in January-July 2017, compared with 96,600 tonnes year on year. The reduction in external supplies was seen only for homopolymer PP and PP random copolymers, while imports of PP block copolymers and other propylene copolymers, on the contrary, increased.

Overall, the structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

July imports of homopolymer PP into the country grew to 7,200 tonnes, compared with 5,200 tonnes in June. Local companies increased their shipments of homopolymer PP raffia grade from Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Overall imports of this PP grade reached 33,300 tonnes in the first seven months of 2017, compared to 45,300 a year earlier.

July imports of PP block copolymers in Russia increased to about 3,200 tonnes against 3,500 tonnes in June. Local companies reduced purchasing of PP block copolymers for  non-pressure pipes extrusion.


Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia reached 23,600 tonnes in January-July 2017, compared to 18,000 tonnes a year earlier. Last month"s imports of PP random copolymers were about 2,700 tonnes, which was virtually equal to the June figure. Total imports of PP random copolymers in Russia were 16,300 tonnes in January - July 2017, compared with 18,100 tonnes year on year.

Imports of other propylene polymers for the reported period increased to about 19,400 tonnes compared with 15,300 tonnes in the same time a year earlier.
