PVC processing capacities up 436 kt in Russia in 2009

July 16/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Total increase of PVC capacities in Russia formed 436.000 tpa last year according to just published MRC Annual report.
PVC processing capacities up 436 kt in Russia in 2009


By our estimate, in 2009 investments into PVC processing equipment formed $62 mln. In spite of the crisis, total PVC processing capacities went up by 436.000 tpa in 2009. First of all, converters expended blending (+156 kt/year) and profile extrusion (+114 kt/year) capacities.


Today almost half of PVC processing capacities are concentrated in Central region, over 90% of which is in Moscow oblast. It should be mentioned that the second region in capacities is not North Eastern (as in all the other basic polymers processing sectors), but North Caucasian. Here over 9% PVC processing capacities are situated. For example, Turkish profile producers have chosen Krasnodar Krai as proprietary region for business. The attractiveness of this region is going to grow further due to Winter Olympics in Sochi 2014 infrastructure investments. Analysis of regional investments, launch of Kalush capacities and existing development projects are signs of future changes in resin supply structure.


More detailed analysis of PVC processing and consumption by sectors, markets, finished goods types and converters is available in PVC - 2010 Annual report.
