In 2012 imports of PET to Ukraine increased by 15%

January 29/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) - In 2012 imports of  bottle PET to the domestic market of Ukraine increased by 22,000 tonnes (up 15%) compared with 2011 and amounted to 163,000 tonnes, according to MRC DataScope.

Last year was quite successful for the Ukrainian PET converters. Almost all major makers of PET preforms increased their capacity utilization. Thus, in 2012 the  purchases of material for the production of preforms increased by 22,000 tonnes, compared to the previous year and amounted to 163,000 tonnes.

Though, despite the increase in supply in 2012, the total imports of PET granulate were still below pre-crisis level. It should be noted that the peak of imports of PET granulate to Ukraine took place in 2007, when the total volume of imported PET reached 250,000 tonnes.

The leader in sales of bottle PET in Ukraine was a Pakistani maker  Gatronova. In 2012, the Gatronova"s sales in Ukraine grew by more than three times and totaled 21,800 tonnes. Due to the increase in imports of Pakistani PET, sales of Chinese China Resources Chemicals, leader in the supply of granulate in 2011, fell and took second place in the total imports.

In 2012 China Resources supplied  19,600 tonnes of PET granulate, whereas in 2011 that figure made 27,700 tonnes. The third place in the supplies to Ukraine took Lithuanian NeoGroup (18,000 tonnes).

Among the makers of PET in the CIS, Belarus plant  Mogilevkhimvolokno managed to gain considerable success in the supplies of PET to the domestic market of Ukraine. In 2012 Mogilevkhimvolokno shipped to Ukraine about 9,000 tonnes of bottle PET, which is three times higher than over the previous year and hit the record high.
