March 24/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of high density polyethylene (HDPE) into Russia grew in January-February 2020 by 25% year on year to 56,600 tonnes. Pipe grade and film and extrusion blow moulding grade polyethylene (PE) accounted for the greatest increase in imports, according to MRC's DataScope report.

February imports of high density polyethylene increased to 28,900 tonnes compared with 27,700 tonnes in January. Overall HDPE imports reached 56,700 tonnes in January-February 2020 versus 45,200 tonnes a year earlier. HDPE deliveries in all processing sectors increased, but the largest increase in imports came from pipe and blow HDPE.
