PE processing capacities up 209 kt

July 07/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polyethylene (PE) processing capacities increased 209 kt in Russia last year according to just published MRC Annual report.
PE processing capacities up 209 kt


Comparing with 2008, growth of capacities dropped by 63%. MRC analysts do not regard this figure as critically small for the market as the equipment, capacity of which exceeds current PE consumption nearly 2 times, had already been installed in the market during the last decade.


At year-end, 331 PE processing lines were installed in that sector. The pipe extrusion sector demonstrated the highest growth of capacities (+92 kt/year) in 2009, despite the fall of pipe-grade HDPE consumption by 32% according to the results of the year. That sector is followed by the film extrusion (+57 kt/year) and cable extrusion (+28 kt/year) sectors. Converters in these three sectors are likely quite optimistic about r Probably, in these three sectors exactly the converters are optimistic about their business outlooks for the next 2-3 years.


For more detailed analysis of processing capacities and polyethylene consumption in the context of sectors, markets and types of finished goods of each converter is available in Polyethylene 2010 Annual report.
