PP imports in Russia decreased by 7% in January-April

May 17/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polypropylene (PP) imports into Russia slumped in the first four months of 2019 by 7% year on year to 57,900 tonnes.
Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the greatest decrease, as per MRC"s DataScope report.

April PP imports into the Russian market rose to 18,700 tonnes from 13,900  tonnes a month earlier, supply of all grades of propylene polymers grew. In general, total PP imports into the country decreased to about 57,900 tonnes in January - April compared with 62,000 tonnes year on year.

The volume of external purchases for all grades of polymers of propylene decreased, with the exception of stat-copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers), with the most noticeably reduced imports of homopolymer PP. Overall, the structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

April imports of homopolymer PP increased to 6,300 tonnes against 5,600  tonnes a month earlier, shipments of homopolymer PP from Azerbaijan increased slightly. Thus, overall imports of homopolymer PP to Russia totalled about 18,900 tonnes in the first four months of 2019, compared to 21,000 tonnes a year earlier.

April imports of PP block copolymers in Russia were about 5,600 tonnes against 3,500 tonnes in March on increased demand for pipe and injection moulding PP. Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia reached 16,000 tonnes in January-April 2019, compared to 16,200 tonnes a year earlier.

April imports of  PP random copolymers were about 3,600 tonnes versus 3,400 tonnes a month earlier, on increased volumes of pipe PP purchases. Total imports of PP random copolymers in Russia were 11,400 tonnes in January - April 2019, compared with 10,800 tonnes year on year.

Russia"s imports of other polymers of propylene for the period were about 11,600 tonnes in the first four months of the year, compared with 14.000 tonnes year on year.
