December 23/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of PC granules to Russia (excluding shipments from Belarus) rose in the first eleven months of 2019 almost by 2 times year on year to 18,500 tonnes, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Imports of material into the country were 9,900 tonnes in January-November 2018.

At the same time, imports of material, excluding Belarusian deliveries, were 2,300 tonnes last month versus 1,100 tonnes in November 2018. Imports of material into the country reached 2,000 tonnes in October 2019.

Extrusion grade PC accounted for the greatest increase in imports.  These grades accounted for 61% of the total imports of material into the Russian Federation (11,200 tonnes).

Covestro (with the share of 57%) and Sabic Innovative Plastics (32%) are the main import suppliers of PC granules.  Both producers significantly increased their shipments in the first eleven months of 2019. Thus, imports of Covestro"s material grew more that two-fold: from 4,700 tonnes (47% of the total imports) in January-November 2018 to 10,600 tonnes (57% of the total imports). Sabic"s shipments also rose significantly - to 5,900 tonnes from 2,200 tonnes (excluding Belarusian imports) a year earlier.
