October PP imports to Russia decreased by 18%

November 13/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) - The external supply of polypropylene (PP) to  Russia decreased by 18% (14,100 tonnes) in October, compared with the September level - 17,100 tonnes. The greatest decrease in imports occurred for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

PP imports to Russia have been decreasing for the second month in a row, following August record high. The launch of two new production sites in Omsk and Tobolsk with a total capacity of 680,000 tonnes resulted in the reduction of October of homopolymer PP to a record low - 2,900 tonnes.

The structure of Russia"s PP imports last month looked as follows. Import of homopolymer PP in September was about 6,200 tonnes, and in October this figure dropped more than twofold. Total imports of homo the total amount of external supplies of homopolymer PP in October was 67,200 tonnes in January-October 2013, from  121,700 tonnes in the same period of 2012.  The main reason of the decline in imports of homopolymer PP was the launch of Poliom and Tobolsk-Polymer.

October imports of block copolymers of propylene (PP-block) rose to 4,300 tonnes to 4,000 tonnes in September. Total imports of PP-block to Russia in the first ten months in 2013 rose to 47,300 tonnes, from 45,700 tonnes because of the stronger demand in the sector of injection moulding.

Imports of  stat-propylene copolymer (PP-random) in October was about 3,700 tonnes against 3,200 tonnes in September. Total imports of PP-random to Russia decreased by 31,000 tonnes, from 41,800 tonnes in 2012 because of the weaker demand in the sectors of injection moulding and pressure pipes.

External supplies of other polymers of propylene in October fell to 3,200 tonnes, from 3,800 tonnes in the previous month.
In general, the external supply of polymers of propylene totalled 31,300 tonnes in the first ten months of the year, from 28,700 tonnes year on year.
