PVC-S imports to Ukraine up 29% over the seven months

August 16/2011
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Over the seven months, Ukrainian companies increased imports of suspension PVC to 77.75 KT, that was 29% more year on year. In July, total volume of PVC-S imports decreased to 7.4 KT, according to MRC DataScope.

PVC-S imports to Ukraine up 29% over the seven months

This year the peak of PVC-S imports to the Ukrainian market was observed in April (17.75 KT), and after that it was gradually diminishing. April peak of resin imports was primarily stipulated by intentions of some market players to contract PVC at the minimum price in January- February.

A launch of a new facility of PVC-S production by Karpatneftechem in Kalush (300 KT) also contributed to the import reduction.

In July, US suspension supplies made only 1.8 KT, while in the peak month total PVC imports from North America made nearly 12 KT. On the contrary, European suspension supplies increased to 5KT. Traditionally the main European suppliers are Anwil, BorsodChem, Vinnolit and Spolana.

The further decline of PVC imports in Ukraine is soon expected on the back of seasonal factors, as well as under the pressure of domestic producers. In July, Karpatneftechem produced more than 12KT of PVC-S. Totally, over less than three months, the company produced more than 22 KT of resin. In September, Karpatneftechem is expected to work at full capacity.
