PP imports to Belarus up by 10% in Jan-Nov 2019

January 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus rose in the first eleven months of 2019 by 10% year on year, totalling 99,800 tonnes. All grades of propylene polymers accounted for the increase in demand, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

PP imports to Belarus were 9,800 tonnes in November 2019, compared to 8,500 tonnes a month earlier, local companies raised their purchasing of PP in Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 99,800 tonnes in January-November 2019, compared to 90,500 tonnes a year earlier, demand increased for all PP grades, with propylene copolymers accounting for the greatest growth.

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

November imports of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) reached 7,500 tonnes, compared to 5,600 tonnes a month earlier, purchasing of homopolymer PP in Russia increased after September-October restrictions because of shutdowns for maintenance at some local plants. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 67,800 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 9% year on year. Russian producers with the share of about 86% of the total shipments were the key suppliers.

November imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 2,300 tonnes versus 2,900 tonnes a month earlier, local companies reduced their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 32,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 12.7% year on year.
