PVC imports to Kazakhstan grew by 31% in Jan-Sept 2019

November 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) into Kazakhstan rose in the first nine months of 2019 by 31% year on year to 45,200 tonnes, reported MRC analysts.

Demand for PVC subsided from local companies in September, with imports of unmixed PVC remaining atypically high and totalling 4,600 tonnes in September versus 8,200 tonnes in August. Thus, overall imports of resin reached 45,200 tonnes in January-September 2019, compared to 32,300 tonnes a year earlier. At the same time, it is worth noting that such a substantial increase in imports was caused by the further resale of resin to Russia in the period of an acute shortage in July-September.

Due to the geographical position, Chinese producers with the share of about 94% of the local market over the stated period were the main PVC suppliers to Kazakhstan. Russia was the second largest PVC supplier, shipments of  Russian resin reached 2,900 tonnes over the stated period.
