Russia"s imports of PP decreased because of the launch of two new plants in Omsk and Tobolsk, with  total capacity of 680,000 tonnes/year, which resulted in a significant growth in PP production volumes in Russia. Following October decrease, Russia"s PP imports grew to 19,400 tonnes in November.

Imports of homopolymer PP increased to 9,600 tonnes in November, compared with 3,000 tonnes in October, helped by the resumption of supply of homopolymer PP from Turkmenistan.
