Thai Polyethylene to take off-stream HDPE unit in Thailand

November 07/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Thai Polyethylene Co, a subsidiary of Siam Cement Group, is in plans to shut its high density polyethylene (HDPE) unit owing to economic fundamentals, reported Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Thailand informed that the unit will be taken off-stream on November 21, 2019. It is expected to remain off-stream for around 20-30 days.

Located in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, the unit has a production capacity of 220,000 mt/year.

As MRC wrote before, on June 28, 2017, Thai Polyethylene took off-stream its No. 4 HDPE plant in Thailand for 15 days owing to tehcnical issues. Located at Map Tha Phut in Thailand, the unit has a production capacity of 400,000 mt/year.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's September estimated HDPE consumption fell to 70,570 tonnes from 108,320 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers reduced their output due to maintenance works, whereas imports were high partially because of an increase in US shipments. The estimated HDPE consumption totalled 862,170 tonnes in January-September 2019, up by 7% year on year. HDPE imports increased by 47%, whereas production dropped by 5% due to a long period of maintenance works at three production capacities.
