March PP imports into Ukraine rose to 11,900 tonnes from 11,400 tonnes a month earlier, with propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounting for the main increase. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 31,500 tonnes in January-March 2019, compared to 28,400 tonnes a year earlier. The volume of homopolymer PP imports increased, while the demand for propylene copolymers decreased.

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

March imports of homopolymers of propylene to the Ukrainian market grew to 9,700 tonnes from 9,100 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased purchasing of homopolymer PP raffia in the Middle East. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 24,500 tonnes in the first three months of 2019 versus 20,300 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were 800 tonnes, compared to 1,100 tonnes in February. 2,900 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported over the stated period, whereas this figure was 3,300 tonnes a year earlier.

March imports of  PP random copolymers were about 1,300 tonnes versus 1,100 tonnes a month earlier. Overall imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 3,500 tonnes in January-March 2018, whereas this figure was 4,300 tonnes a year earlier. Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were about 500 tonnes over the stated period.
