PVC imports into Kazakhstan decreased by 19% in January-September

November 02/2018
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) into Kazakhstan dropped to about 33,700 tonnes in January-September 2018, down 19%  compared with the same time a year earlier, according to MRC analysts.

There was a significant decrease in demand for PVC in September from local companies. September imports of unmixed PVC amounted to 1,400 tonnes against  2,400 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, overall imports of PVC to Kazakhstan totalled 33,700 tonnes in January-September 2018, compared to 41,700 tonnes a year earlier.

Such a high decline in imports was partly a result of the fall in the volume of PVC re-import to Russia. Re-imports of acetylene PVC into Russia were 4,400 tonnes in 2017, while in January-September it did not exceed 1,000 tonnes.

Due to the geographical position, the main suppliers of PVC to Kazakhstan were Chinese producers, with the share of about 77% of the local market over the stated period.

The second largest supplier of PVC is Russia, during the period under review, Russian PVC  supplies reached 6,500 tonnes.
