PP imports to Ukraine increased by 13% in January-May

June 26/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ukraine"s polypropylene (PP) imports totalled 56,500 tonnes in the first five months of the year, up 13% year on year.
The greatest increase in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

May PP imports into the country fell to 11,500 tonnes from 13,500 tonnes a month earlier, the main decrease in imports were seen in the shipments of homopolymer PP. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 56,500 tonnes in January-May 2019, compared to 50,000 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.

May imports of homopolymers of propylene to the Ukrainian market decreased to 8,000 tonnes from 11,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies decreased purchasing of homopolymer PP raffia in the Middle East. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 43,900 tonnes in the first five months of 2019 versus 36,300 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were 1,100 tonnes, compared to 1,400 tonnes in April. Imports of PP block copolymers into the country were about 5,400 tonnes in January-May, compared with about 5,200 tonnes year on year.

May imports of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymer) were 2,200 tonnes from 700 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly reduced their purchasing of pipe PP random copolymer. Overall imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 6,400 tonnes in January-May 2019, whereas this figure was about 7,400 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were about 776 tonnes over the stated period.
