PVC production in Russia up by 3% in Jan-Nov 2019

December 10/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) reached 893,600 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2019, up by 3% year on year. At the same time, not all Russian producers raised their output of HDPE, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

November total production of unmixed PVC was about 84,600 tonnes versus 88,500 tonnes a month earlier, SayanskKhimPlast and Kaustik Volgograd decreased their capacity utilisation last month. Overall PVC production reached 893,600 tonnes in January-November 2019, compared to 871,000 tonnes a year earlier. All plants raised their output, except for Kaustik Volgograd.

The structure of PVC production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

RusVinyl (JV of SIBUR and SolVin) produced about 30,200 tonnes of PVC in November, with emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) accounting for 2,700 tonnes, compared to 29,500 tonnes a month earlier. Overall PVC production at RusVinyl was 316,700 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 4% year on year. Such a significant increase in production indicators was primarily due to the absence of long scheduled maintenance works in the current year, which was traditionally carried out in April - May.

SayanskKhimPlast produced 25,600 tonnes of suspension PVC (SPVC) last month, whereas this figure was 27,800 tonnes in October. The Sayansk plant managed to produce about 266,600 tonnes of resin in January-November, compared to 251,600 tonnes a year earlier.

Baskhir Soda Company produced about 23,000 tonnes of SPVC in November versus 23,800 tonnes a month earlier. Total SPVC production at Baskhir Soda Company increased to 239,100 tonnes in the first eleven months of this year, compared to 229,700 tonnes in the same period in 2018.

Kaustik (Volgograd) produced about 5,800 tonnes of SPVC in November, compared with 7,400 tonnes in October. The decline in production in November was due to work to modernise production. The plant"s overall output of PVC exceeded 71,100 tonnes in the first ten months of 2019 versus 84,500 tonnes a year earlier. The Volgograd"s lower production was caused by a shutdown for maintenance in May-June.
