PC imports to Russia rise almost by 2 times in 2019

January 24/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of PC granules to Russia (excluding shipments from Belarus) rose in 2019 almost by 2 times year on year to 21,300 tonnes, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Imports of material into the country were 10,900 tonnes in January-December 2018.

At the same time, imports of material, excluding Belarusian deliveries, were 2,900 tonnes last month versus 900 tonnes in December 2018. Imports of material into the country were 2,300 tonnes in November 2019.

Extrusion grade PC accounted for the greatest increase in imports. These grades accounted for 63% of the total imports of material into the Russian Federation (13,450 tonnes). The share of injection moulding grades was 32% (6,900 tonnes) and that of blow moulding grades - 5% (970 tonnes).

Covestro and Sabic Innovative Plastics were the main import suppliers of PC granules. Both producers significantly increased their shipments last year. Thus, imports of Covestro"s material grew by more that two-fold: from 5,400 tonnes (49% of the total imports) in January-December 2018 to 11,700 tonnes (55% of the total imports). Sabic"s shipments also rose significantly in 2019 - to 7,500 tonnes (35%) - from 2,300 tonnes (21%, excluding Belarusian imports) in 2018.
