Ukrainian PVC imports down by 26% in 2019, exports up by 11%

January 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased in 2019 by 26% year on year, totalling about 49,000 tonnes, whereas sales of Ukrainian PVC to foreign markets rose by 11% year on year, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports into the Ukrainian market grew to 4,300 tonnes from 3,300 tonnes in November, with North American resin accounting for the increase in shipments from a windows and plastics producer. Overall imports of suspension reached 49,000 tonnes in 2019, compared to 66,100 tonnes a year earlier.

European producers with the share of about 64% of the total imports were the key suppliers of resin to the Ukrainian market in 2019. Producers from the USA with the share of about 36% were the second largest suppliers.

The Ukrainian producer"s higher output allowed to increase exports. 12,900 tonnes of suspension were shipped to foreign markets in December, whereas this figure was 13,900 tonnes a year earlier. Overall, 163,300 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in 2019 versus 147,500 tonnes a year earlier.
