PVC imports from China continues falling

November 05/2010

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PVC supplies from China to the Russian market considerably fell according to expectations. For the first two weeks they made up about 6.5 KT, MRC analysts say. 

Kaustik (Sterlitamak) start-up in the second half of October after the forced outage caused by the ethylene conflict with Salavatnefteorgsintez relieved definite tension in the Russian PVC market and made the marketers sure about resin offer availability in October-November.      

Meanwhile sharp PVC prices rise in the Chinese domestic market under a pressure of high demand influenced exports prices which reached the level of  USD 1.100/mt, DAF Dostyk.

High prices for the Chinese resin as well as complicated logistic system made many marketers limit the volumes of resin purchases in China.

Imports supplies from China traditionally take leading positions in total PVC imports volume and, for example, in July they made up more than 18.5 KT. But high level of prices for resin that will start lowering not earlier than in the second half of November, according to experts, as well as sufficient Russian and North American PVC offers resulted in decrease of volumes of Chinese resin imports.
