In August imports of polyolefins to Kazakhstan reduced by 25%

October 02/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- In August imports of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) to  Kazakhstan reduced by 25% on the back of the limited offer in the external markets, as MRC analysts inform. In August overall imports of PE and PP to Kazakhstan made about 11,200 tonnes compared to 14,900 tonnes in July. The reason for such a serious decrease of imports was a limited offer of polyolefins in the external markets, in particular, from the Russian and Middle Eastern producers.

Referring the brands of polyolefins, overall imports of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) decreased to 8,500 tonnes compared to 11,600 tonnes in July. The main decrease of imports to 650 tonnes (compared to 2,100 tonnes in July) fell at pipe HDPE from the Middle Eastern producers.   

External supplies of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) reduced to 1,400 tonnes against 1,600 tonnes in July. Reduction of imports has been stipulated by a low demand for finished films in the domestic market, in particular, shrinkable films (on the back of a bad weather).

August imports of PP reduced to 1,300 tonnes against 1,800 tonnes in July. PP supplies from Russia decreased by twice - because of the deficit in the domestic market Russian producers reduced their export quotes.
