PP imports to Ukraine up 17% in January-April 2019

May 22/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports to the Ukrainian market totalled about 45,000 tonnes in the first four months of 2019, up by 17% year on year. Propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports, according to MRC"s DataScope report. 

April PP imports into Ukraine rose to 13,500 tonnes from 11,900 tonnes a month earlier, with homopolymer PP accounting for the main increase. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 45,000 tonnes in January-April 2019, compared to 38,600 tonnes a year earlier. Homopolymer PP accounted for the main growth in imports, whereas demand for propylene copolymers subsided.

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

April imports of homopolymer PP to the Ukrainian market rose to 11,300 tonnes from 9,700 tonnes a month earlier, local companies raised their purchasing of homopolymer PP raffia in Russia. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 25,900 tonnes in the first four months of 2019 versus 27,600 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were 1,400 tonnes, compared to 800 tonnes in March. 4,300 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported over the stated period, whereas last year"s figure was 4,100 tonnes.

April imports of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymer) slumped to 700 tonnes from 1,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly reduced their purchasing of injection moulding PP random copolymer. Overall imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 4,200 tonnes in January-April 2019, whereas this figure was about 6,000 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were about 600 tonnes over the stated period.
