PP imports to Ukraine rose by 4% in Jan-Aug 2019

September 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of polypropylene (PP) into the Ukrainian market totalled 90,100 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, up by 4% year on year. Homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in shipments, according to MRC"s DataScope report.  

August PP imports to Ukraine dropped to 11,100 tonnes from 12,200 tonnes a month earlier, local companies cut their purchasing of homopolymer PP in Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 90,100 tonnes in January-August 2019, compared to 86,700 tonnes a year earlier. Homopolymer PP accounted for the main growth in imports, whereas demand for propylene copolymers subsided.

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

August imports of homopolymer PP to the Ukrainian market decreased to 7,800 tonnes because of lower purchasing in Russia from 9,300 tonnes a month earlier. Overall shipments of homopolymer PP reached 69,300 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019 versus 65,300 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were 1,500 tonnes, compared to 1,100 tonnes in July. 9,100 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported over the stated period, whereas this figure was 8,700 tonnes a year earlier.

August imports of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) virtually remained at the previous month"s level, totalling 1,600 tonnes. Overall imports of PP random copolymers exceeded 10,600 tonnes in January-August 2019, whereas this figure was 11,200 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were 1,200 tonnes over the stated period.
