MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of PC granules to Russia (excluding shipments from Belarus) rose in the first ten months of 2019 almost by 2 times year on year to 16,200 tonnes, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Imports of material into the country were 8,900 tonnes in January-October 2018.

At the same time, imports of material, excluding Belarusian deliveries were 2,000 tonnes last month versus 1,500 tonnes in October 2018. Imports of material into the country reached 2,800 tonnes in September 2019. Extrusion grade PC accounted for 60% (9,700 tonnes) of the total shipments to the Russian Federation.

Covestro (with the share of 58%) and Sabic Innovative Plastics (31%) were the main import suppliers of PC granules.  Both producers significantly increased their shipments in the first ten months of 2019. Thus, imports of Covestro"s material grew more that two-fold: from 4,200 tonnes (47% of the total imports) in January-October 2018 to 9,400 tonnes (58% of the total imports). Sabic"s shipments also rose significantly to 5,000 tonnes from 2,140 tonnes (excluding Belarusian imports) a year earlier.
