PP imports to Ukraine rose by 4% in January-February 2019

April 01/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports to the Ukrainian market totalled 19,600 tonnes in the first two months of 2019, up by 5% year on year. Demand for all grades of propylene polymers increased, with some propylene copolymers being the exception, as per MRC"s DataScope report.

February PP imports into Ukraine rose to 11,400 tonnes from 8,100 tonnes a month earlier, with propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounting for the main increase. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 19,600 tonnes in January-February 2019, compared to 18,700 tonnes a year earlier. Imports of homopolymer PP and propylene block copolymers (PP-block) increased, whereas shipments of other grades of propylene polymers decreased.

The structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

January imports of homopolymers of propylene to the Ukrainian market grew to 9,100 tonnes from 5,800 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased purchasing of homopolymer PP raffia in the Middle East and Azerbaijan. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 14,900 tonnes in the first two months of 2019 versus 14,000 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of PP block copolymers fell to 1,100 tonnes, which virtually corresponds to the figure of January. 2,200 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported over the stated period, whereas this figure was 11,900 tonnes a year earlier.

February imports of statistical propylene copolymers (PP random copolymer) also remained at the level of January, totalling 1,100 tonnes. Overall imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 2,200 tonnes in January-February 2019, whereas this figure was 2,400 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were about 300 tonnes over the stated period.
