EPS imports to Ukraine increased by 44% in Q1 2015

April 23/2015

MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of expandable polystyrene (EPS) into Ukraine increased to 4,300 tonnes in the first quarter of 2015, up 44% than in the same period a year earlier, according to MRC DataScope.

A significant increase in imports in the first quarter was achieved by the March deliveries, which amounted to 2,400 tonnes of EPS. The main supplier of EPS in Ukraine was the Russian SIBUR. Ukraine"s imports of Russian EPS were 900 tonnes in March.

Ukrainian converters reported a shortage of Russian material in March. Buyers said that companies increased their purchases in China, Poland and Turkey to cover the expected missing volumes on the back of export quotas cuts from Russian suppliers in the second quarter of this year.

There is only one EPS producer in Ukraine. Stirol Group is located in Gorlovka and has not produced EPS since the spring of last year.
Current needs of converters are fully covered by import contracts.
