PE imports into Belarus decreased by 11% in January - September 2015

November 24/2015

MOSCOW (MRC) - Total imports of polyethylene (PE) in Belarus decreased to 70,800 tonnes in the first nine months of 2015, down 11% year on year. The demand decreased only for high density polyethylene (HDPE), according to MRC analysts.

According to the National Statistical Office of the Republic of Belarus,  September PE imports to Belarus reduced to 7,000 tonnes from 7,900 tonnes a month earlier because of lower HDPE shipments from Russia. Overall PE imports totalled 70,800 tonnes from January to September 2015 versus 79,600 tonnes in the same period a year earlier.

Structure of PE imports in Belarus was as follows.

September imports of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) increased to 3,400 tonnes, compared with 3,100 tonnes in August. The main increase occurred for LLDPE supplies from Saudi Arabia. Total imports of LDPE and LLDPE over the reported period into the country were about 40,300 tonnes, up 5.9% compared with the same time a year earlier.

September imports of HDPE reduced to 3,600 tonnes against 4,800 tonnes a month earlier, the main reduction in the supply of polyethylene occurred for Russian producers (scheduled maintenance works). Total imports of HDPE into the country were about 30,500 tonnes in the reported period, compared with 41,500 tonnes year on year.
