PP imports into Russia rose by 17% in first nine months of 2018

October 15/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) - Total imports of polypropylene (PP) into Russia increased to about 144,600 tonnes in the first nine months of 2018, up 17% compared to the same period of 2017. Supply of all grades of PP increased, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

Russian companies slightly reduced their PP imports in September, which were 13,400 tonnes versus 16,600 tonnes a month earlier, shipments of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) from Central Asia decreased. In general, PP imports into Russia were about 144,600 tonnes in January-September 2018, compared with 123,800 tonnes year on year. Imports of all grades of propylene polymers increased, with homopolymer PP accounting for the greatest increase in deliveries.

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

September imports of homopolymer PP decreased to 3,300 tonnes against 6,300  tonnes a month earlier, shipments of homopolymer PP raffia from Turkmenistan decreased two times. Overall imports of this PP grade reached 51,600 tonnes in the first nine months of 2018, compared to 40,800 a year earlier.

September imports of PP block copolymers was about 4,000 tonnes, which actually equal to the level in August. Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia rose to 35,900 tonnes in the first nine months of 2018, compared to 32,600 tonnes a year earlier.

Import of stat-copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymer) in September also remained at the level of August and amounted to about 3,000 tonnes, while the decline in demand for film PP was offset by the growth in purchases of pipe PP random copolymers. Total imports of PP random copolymers in Russia were 27,100 tonnes in January - September 2018, compared with 23,000 tonnes year on year.

Imports of other propylene polymers for the reported period increased to about 30,100 tonnes compared with 27,400 tonnes in the same time a year earlier.
