PVC imports to Ukraine increased by 2% in H1 2020, exports down by 28%

July 14/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 2% in January-June of this year, compared to the same period in 2019 and reached about 21,400 tonnes. Sales of Ukrainian PVC to foreign markets dropped by 28% year on year, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

June SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market remained at the level of May and reached about 3,500 tonnes; the introduction of an import duty of 18% did not affect the volume of external purchases. Overall SPVC imports reached 21,400 tonnes in January-June 2020, compared to 21,000 tonnes a year earlier. The high level of loading allowed the Ukrainian producer to increase export volumes.

The key suppliers of PVC to the Ukrainian market were producers from Europe, their share in total imports for the period under review amounted to about 83%. Producers from the USA with the share of about 16% were the second largest suppliers.

Last month, Karpatneftekhim had to decrease export sales due to the stronger demand from the domestic market, the export sales of Ukrainian PVC amounted to 12,700 tonnes against 17,400 tonnes in May. Overall, about 102,300 tonnes were shipped for export in the first six months of 2020, compared to 80,100 tonnes a year earlier.
