PP imports in Russia decreased by 19% in Q1 2019

April 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polypropylene (PP) imports into Russia slumped in the first three months of 2019 by 19% year on year to 37,100 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the greatest decrease, as per MRC"s DataScope report.

Russian companies decreased volumes PP imports in March, which reached 13,900 tonnes against 15,200 tonnes in February; shipments of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) and other copolymers of propylene decreased.
In general, total PP imports into the country decreased to about 37,100 tonnes in January - March compared with 45,000 tonnes year on year. The volume of external purchases for all grades of polymers of propylene decreased, while the most noticeably reduced imports of homopolymer PP.

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

March imports of homopolymer PP decreased to 4,700 tonnes against 5,000  tonnes a month earlier, shipments of homopolymer PP from Azerbaijan decreased slightly. Thus, overall imports of homopolymer PP to Russia totalled about 11,700 tonnes in the first three months of 2019, compared to 15,500 tonnes a year earlier.

March imports of PP block copolymers in Russia were about 3,500 tonnes against 4,300 tonnes in February on decreased demand for pipe PP. Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia reached 9,900 tonnes in January-March 2019, compared to 11,200 tonnes a year earlier.

March imports of  PP random copolymers were about 3,100 tonnes versus 2,800 tonnes a month earlier, on increased volumes of injection moulding PP purchases. Total imports of PP random copolymers in Russia were 7,400 tonnes in January - March 2019, compared with 7,700 tonnes year on year.

Imports of other propylene polymers for the reported period increased to about 8,100 tonnes compared with 10,600 tonnes in the same time a year earlier.
