PP imports into Kazakhstan increased by 17% in Jan-July 2018, exports down by 39%

September 17/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of polypropylene (PP) into Kazakhstan exceeded 21,300 tonnes in first seven months of this year, up 17% compared to the same period of 2018. PP exports decreased by 39%, reported MRC analysts.

July 2019 PP shipments to Kazakhstan grew to 3,800 tonnes from 3,100 tonnes a month earlier, local converters increased their purchasing of homopolymer PP in Russia. Total PP imports into the country exceeded  21,300 tonnes in January - July 2019, compared with 18,200 tonnes in the same time a year earlier. The demand for homopolymer PP increased, while demand for propylene copolymers decreased.

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

July imports of homopolymer PP grew to 3,000 tonnes from 2,400 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased their purchasing of homopolymer PP raffia from Russian producers. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 17,100 tonnes in the first seven months of 2019, compared to 13,400 a year earlier.

Shipments of propylene copolymers rose to 834 tonnes in July from 695 tonnes a month earlier, local pipes producers raised their purchasing.
Thus, imports of propylene copolymers reached 4,200 tonnes over the stated period, compared to 4,180 tonnes a year earlier.

Kazakhstan"s PP exports over the first seven months dropped to 12,400 tonnes, whereas this figure was 17,200 tonnes a year earlier. Such a significant decrease in export volumes was due, among other things, to the long shutdown of the local producer, the Neftekhim LTD Company in May - July of the current year.
