PVC production in Russia in 2019 increased by 2%

January 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia's overall production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) reached 975,000 tonnes in 2019, up by 2% year on year.
At the same time, not all Russian producers raised their output of PVC, according to MRC's ScanPlast report.

December total production of unmixed PVC was about 81,400 tonnes versus 84,600 tonnes a month earlier, RusVinyl decreased their capacity utilisation in November. Overall PVC production reached 975,000 tonnes in January-December 2019, compared to 958,600 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 23,100 tonnes of PVC in December, with emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) accounting for 3,100 tonnes, compared to 30,200 tonnes a month earlier. Overall PVC production at RusVinyl was 339,800 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 2% 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 27,900 tonnes of suspension PVC (SPVC) in December, whereas this figure was 25,600 tonnes in November.
The Sayansk plant managed to produce about 294,500 tonnes of resin in January-December, compared to 278,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Baskhir Soda Company produced about 24,100 tonnes of SPVC in November versus 23,000 tonnes a month earlier. Total SPVC production at Baskhir Soda Company increased to 263,200 tonnes in the first twelve months of this year, compared to 253,400 tonnes in the same period in 2018.

Kaustik (Volgograd) produced about 6,400 tonnes of SPVC in December, compared with 5,800 tonnes in November. The decline in production in November was due to work to modernise production. The plant's overall production of resin exceeded 77,500 tonnes over the stated period versus 92,200 tonnes a year earlier. The Volgograd's lower production was caused by a shutdown for maintenance in May-June.
