PVC imports to Ukraine fell by 36% in Jan-Aug 2019, exports down by 7%

September 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased in the first eight months of 2019 by 36% year on year, totalling 31,300 tonnes. At the same time, sales of Ukrainian PVC to foreign markets dropped by 7% year on year, according to a MRC"s DataScope report. 

Last month"s SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market fell to 4,300 tonnes from 6,000 tonnes in July, with US resin accounting for the main decrease in shipments. Overall SPVC imports reached 31,300 tonnes in January-August 2019, compared to 49,100 tonnes a year earlier.

European producers with the share of about 65% of the total imports were the key suppliers of resin to the Ukrainian market in the first eight months of 2019. Producers from the USA with the share of about 34% were the second largest suppliers.

This year"s stronger demand for Ukrainian PVC from the domestic market led to lower exports. 14,000 tonnes of suspension were shipped to foreign markets in August, whereas this figure was 12,400 tonnes a month earlier. Overall, 106,400 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in January-August 2019 versus 115,000 tonnes a year earlier.
