PVC rigid compounds imports from Russia to decrease

August 24/2010

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of rigid compounds from Russia in 2009 amounted to less than half of 2008 volumes (29,6 kt) - according to MRC "PVC in Russia - 2010" Annual report.

PVC rigid compounds imports from Russia to decrease


Before 2008, growing imports of stable dryblend had been observed; in 2008 the volumes reached 61 kt. During the pre-crisis decade compound imports in the Russian market went up 23 times. The last year was a turning-point: Imports barely exceeded 29,6 kt, in H1 2010 - 13 kt.


MRC analysts consider that the market of imported compound is not going to recover to the level of of 2008. In 2008-2009, big converters were increasing their blending capacities (Profine Rus, PK Proplex, DKS etc.). In 2009, Deceunink Rus and Gealan Rus, being  the biggest dry blend consumers from their European divisions, also installed their own PVC blenders.


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