PVC production in Russia up by 6% in January-May 2019

June 11/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC)  totalled 422,900 tonnes in the first five months of 2019, up by 6% year on year. At the same time, not all Russian producers raised their output of PVC, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

May total production of unmixed PVC decreased to 79,600 tonnes from  83,200 tonnes a month earlier, Kaustik Volgograd and RusVinyl decreased their capacity utilisation. Overall PVC production reached 422,900 tonnes in January-May 2019, compared to 400,700 tonnes a year earlier. All plants raised their output, except for Kaustik Volgograd.

The structure of PVC production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

RusVinyl (JV of SIBUR and SolVin) produced about 24,600 tonnes of PVC in May, with emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) accounting for 2,600 tonnes, compared to 26,700 tonnes a month earlier. Overall PVC production at RusVinyl was 140,700 tonnes in January-May 2019, up by 11% year on year. Such a significant increase in production was a result of the absence of long maintenance works.

SayanskKhimPlast produced 27,600 tonnes of suspension PVC (SPVC) last month, whereas this figure was 27,200 tonnes in May. The Sayansk plant managed to produce about 135,700 tonnes of resin in January-Mary, compared to 122,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Baskhir Soda Company produced 23,800 tonnes of SPVC in May versus 22,200 tonnes a month earlier. Total SPVC production at Baskhir Soda Company increased to 114,900 tonnes in the first five months of this year, compared to 111,400 tonnes in the same period in 2018.

Kaustik (Volgograd) produced about 3,500 tonnes of SPVC in May, compared with 6,900 tonnes in April. The reduction in production was a result of scheduled maintenance works, which started on 15 May. Kaustik"s overall production of PVC reached 31,800 tonnes in the first five months of 2019 versus 39,500 tonnes a year earlier.
