November 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polypropylene (PP) imports into Russia slumped by 4% year on year to 152,100 tonnes in the first ten months of 2019.
The greatest decrease in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

October PP imports into the Russian market decreased to 14,900 tonnes from 17,100  tonnes a month earlier, supply of PP block copolymers from Europe dropped. In general, total PP imports into the country decreased to about 152,100 tonnes in January - October compared with 158,500 tonnes year on year. The volume of external purchases for all grades of polymers of propylene decreased, with the exception of PP block copolymers, with the most noticeably reduced imports of homopolymer PP.

Overall, the structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

October imports of homopolymer PP into the country were 5,000 tonnes, which practically the same as in September. Thus, overall imports of homopolymer PP to Russia totalled 48,200 tonnes in the ten months of 2019, compared to 55,200 tonnes a year earlier.

October imports of PP block copolymers in Russia were about 3,700 tonnes against 6,000 tonnes in September on decreased demand for extrusion PP. Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia reached 46,900 tonnes in January-October 2019, compared to 39,900 tonnes a year earlier.

October imports of PP random copolymers remained in the level of September at about 3,000 tonnes. Total imports of PP random copolymers in Russia were 26,900 tonnes in January - October 2019, compared with 29,600 tonnes year on year.

Russia"s imports of other polymers of propylene for the period were about 30,000 tonnes in the first ten months of the year, compared with 33,900 tonnes year on year.
