MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of polyethylene (PE) to the Ukrainian market grew in the first five months of 2019 by 11% year on year to 111,300 tonnes. The high density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main increase in imports, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s PE imports to Ukraine dropped to 21,100 tonnes from 25,100 tonnes in April, shipments of all ethylene polymers decreased. Overall PE imports reached 111,300 tonnes in January-May 2019, compared to 100,300 tonnes a year earlier. HDPE imports increased, whereas imports of other grades of ethylene polymers virtually remained at the 2018 level.

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

Last month"s HDPE imports fell to 8,700 tonnes from 9,600 tonnes in April, with pipe grade PE accounting for the reduction in shipments. Overall HDPE imports reached 42,000 tonnes in the first five months of 2019, compared to 31,100 tonnes a year earlier.

May imports of low density polyethylene (LDPE) were 5,100 tonnes versus 6,900 tonnes a month earlier. Overall LDPE imports reached 31,600 tonnes over the stated period, which virtually corresponded to the 2018 figure.

Last month"s imports of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) were 6,500 tonnes, compared to 7,500 tonnes in April. Overall LLDPE imports rose to 32,000 tonnes in January-May 2019 from 32,000 tonnes a year earlier.

Imports of other PE grades, including ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA), totalled 5,200 tonnes over the stated period, compared to 5,700 tonnes a year earlier.
