The biggest increase in imports was fixed in the so-called sector of films without printing. This year imports to the Russian market of these films doubled nearly to 5 KT. About 54% of the increase in supplies was made by films with printing.


The smallest imports increase was made in the sector of films for tobacco products packaging (about 2%), mostly due to decline in cigarettes production in Russia. According to Rosstat, this year cigarette production fell by 5%.


In July, some Russian producers of BOPP films increased production. Following August results, it is expected that output of BOPP films in Russia will be more than 10 KT, by that the Russian producers will partially substitute imports in the domestic market.
