PP imports to Ukraine increased by 9% in January-November

December 26/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ukraine's polypropylene (PP) imports totalled about 122,800 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year, up 9% year on year. Demand for all PP grades increased, as per MRC's DataScope report.

November PP imports into Ukraine dropped to 11,600 tonnes from 13,500 tonnes a month earlier, with  propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) accounting for the main decrease in shipments. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 122,800 tonnes in January-November 2018, compared to 112,400 tonnes a year earlier.

Demand for all PP grades increased, but PP block copolymers accounted for the greatest growth. The supply structure by PP grades looked the following way over the stated period.

November  imports of homopolymers of propylene to the Ukrainian market decreased to 9,000 tonnes against 10,400 tonnes a month earlier, local companies decreased the volume of purchases of homopolymer PP raffia in Saudi Arabia and Russia. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 93,200 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2018 versus 85,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month's imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were 1,100 tonnes, compared to 1,300 tonnes in October. Demand for injection moulding propylene copolymers improved from local companies. 12,200 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported over the stated period, whereas last year's figure was 11,900 tonnes.

November imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 1,300 tonnes versus 1,500 tonnes a month earlier, demand for PP decreased from pipes producers. Overall imports of PP random copolymer reached 15,300 tonnes in January-November 2018, whereas this figure was 12,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were 2,100 tonnes over the stated period.
