HDPE imports in Belarus rose by 24% in 2019

February 21/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall high density polyethylene (HDPE) imports into Belarus decreased in 2019 by 24% year on year, reaching 68,500 tonnes. The main increase in supplies accounted on the Ukrainian producer,  according to MRC"s DataScope report.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics of Belarus, PE imports to Belarus rose slightly in December 2019 to 6,600 tonnes from 6,300 tonnes a month earlier. Overall HDPE imports totalled 68,500 tonnes in 2019 versus 55,500 tonnes a year earlier. Such an increase in imports was partially caused by the further resale of PE to Russia.

The second largest supplier was the Ukrainian producer, the total supply amounted to slightly more than 24,100 tonnes against 12,200 tonnes a year earlier.
