MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of polypropylene (PP) to Belarus rose in the first four months of 2019 by 6.3% year on year, totalling slightly over 34,100 tonnes. Exclusively homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) accounted for the increase in demand, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Overall imports of propylene polymers exceeded 34,100 tonnes in January-April 2019, compared to 32,100 tonnes a year earlier, demand for homopolymer PP increased significantly, whereas demand for propylene copolymers subsided.

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

April imports of homopolymer PP exceeded 6,600 tonnes, compared to 6,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 24,000 tonnes in January-April 2019, up by 11.8% year on year. Russian producers with the share of about 86% of the total shipments were the key suppliers.

April imports of propylene copolymers into Belarus were 2,900 tonnes versus 2,600 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased their procurement of injection moulding statistical copolymers (PP random copolymers) in Russia. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 10,100 tonnes in January-April 2019, down by 4.9% year on year.
