LLDPE imports to Russia keep growing

October 13/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) -- In September the Russian converters decreased the LLDPE imports volume but in total during 9 months of the current year the imports made up about 79 kt, MRC Datascope says.


In September LLDPE imports volume made up more than 10.2 kt that is 1,3 kt (-11,5%) lower than August supply volumes. The main supply volumes fall at  LLDPE  produced by Dow, Sabic and Exxon Mobil, whose supply volumes made up 3.6 kt, 1.8 kt and 1.5 kt respectively.


If Dow and ExxonMobil preserved the LLDPE supply volumes to the Russian market, decline of Sabic polyethlyne production made up 1.2 kt, it is 40% less than August supply.


The Russian LLDPE producer is traditionally Nizhnekamskneftechim. In September the company renewed the production of LLDPE thus need in import supply was decreased.

The further production of LLDPE at Nizhnekamskneftechim is planned to be renewed closer to December 2010.

In this connection in October-November the growth of LLDPE import supply to the Russian market is expected.
