Activity keeps up growing in the Russian PVC market

September 09/2010

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Suspension of Sterlitamak capacities, plant shutdown at Sayansk and imposibility of efficient PVC supply from China - all these factors destabilize the market situation - according to MRC Price reports on the Russian PVC market.

Activity keeps up growing in the Russian PVC market


In August, acetylene-based PVC imports from China went down to 11 kt; in July, supplies of Chinese resin were at the level of about 19 kt. In September, acetylene-based PVC imports are going to be even lower. Traditionally, China and Kazakhstan jointly stage military excercises, and as a result, railway traffic through Alashankou - Dostyk transfer point is going to be almost totally paralized.


Impossibility of efficient replenishment of acetylene-based PVC stocks from China, long-term forced suspension in Sayansk - all these factors have led to some rush in the market. Many converters are actively building up additional stocks for October. Supply of Chinese resin in the Russian market is rapidly reducing; lack of some PVC grades is already reported. Prices in the middle of the week went up to RUB 46.500 - 47.500/mt, including VAT, FCA.


Supply of PVC from North America, contrariwise, keeps up growing. According to the results of August, overall imports of North American suspension have reached their record at the level of 23,5 kt. American PVC oversupply  is obvious, however, many converters still prefer Chinese resin. As per experts, North American PVC is new for the Russian market, and the market should get used to it, test it, as it was with acetylene-based resin from China.
