May 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ukraine"s polypropylene (PP) imports totalled about 39,100 tonnes in January-April of this year, down 13% year on year.
Supply of all grades of PP decreased, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

April PP imports to Ukraine decreased to 8,100 tonnes under the pressure of quarantine restrictions due to coronavirus against 10,500 tonnes a month earlier.Due to the partial shutdown of capacities, local companies have seriously reduced purchases of all types of propylene polymers. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 39,100 tonnes in January-April 2020, compared to 45,000 tonnes a year earlier.
Only supplies of stat propylene copolymers (PP random copolymers) increased, while the demand for propylene polymers decreased.

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

April imports of homopolymer PP to the Ukrainian market decreased to 5,800 tonnes from 8,000 tonnes a month earlier, with Russian injection moulding homopolymer PP accounting for the main decrease in shipments. Total homopolymer PP imports were 30,400 tonnes in January-April, compared to 36,000 tonnes a year earlier.

April imports of PP block copolymers into the country amounted to about 800 tonnes compared to 1,000 tonnes in March, local companies reduced the volume of purchases of injection moulding polypropylene. Over the reporting period, about 3,400 tonnes of propylene block copolymers were imported against 4,300 tonnes for the same period in 2019.

April stat PP imports decreased to 1,200 tonnes against 1,300 tonnes a month earlier, local converters reduced their purchases of pipe and injection moulding PP random copolymers. Overall PP random copolymers imports reached 4,600 tonnes in January-April 2020, compared to 4,200 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers totalled slightly less 700 tonnes over the stated period.
