HDPE imports into Russia decreased by 22% in January - November 2016

December 14/2016

MOSCOW (MRC) - Total imports of high density polyethylene (HDPE) into Russia decreased to about 137,500 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2016, down 22% compared to the same period of 2015. Reduction of imports was seen in all segments of consumption, the exception was the film and blow moulding polyethylene, according to  MRC DataScope.

November imports of HDPE into Russia reduced to 11,700 tonnes, compared with 12,800 tonnes a month earlier, the main decline in purchases accounted for extrusion blow moulding PE, production of films and injection moulding sector. Total HDPE imports into Russia decreased to 137,500 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year, compared with 177,000 tonnes in the same time a year earlier. The greatest reduction in external supplies recorded in the segment of pipe extrusion, and extrusion coating of steel pipes of large diameter, while import of film and blow moulding HDPE, on the contrary, has grown.

Structure of HDPE supply over the reported period looked as follows.

November imports of injection moulding PE fell to 2,600 tonnes from 3,500 tonnes a month earlier, the main decrease in imports accounted for South Korean and Uzbek PE. Total imports of injection moulding HDPE in to the country were about 33,800 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year, compared with 42,700 tonnes a year on year.


November imports of HDPE for extrusion blowmoulding into the country reduced practically three times against October to about 900 tonnes.
Total imports of HDPE for extrusion blow moulding into the country increased to 26,500 tonnes in January - November 2016, compared to 23,700 tonnes year on year, with main increase accounted for Uzbek PE.

November imports of film HDPE dropped to 1,900 tonnes from 2,900 tonnes in the previous month. Total imports of film HDPE into the country increased to 24,000 tonnes in January-November 2016, compared to 17,000 tonnes a year earlier.

The last month"s production of pipe HDPE remained practically at the level of October and was about  1,600 tonnes. Russia"s pipe HDPE imports in the first eleven months of the year decreased to 20,500 tonnes, down 47% year on year. The main reasons for the fall in import volumes were increased domestic production and reduced the demand for pipes.

November imports of HDPE for extrusion coating of steel pipes of large diameter increased to 3,900 tonnes, whereas the previous month this figure has not exceeded 1,600 tonnes. Imports of this type of polyethylene fell by 49% to 21,900 tonnes in the first eleven months of this year, partly because of the growth of local production.

Russia"s imports of HDPE in other consumption sectors decreased to 10,700 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year compared with 10,700 tonnes year on year.
