PVC imports to Russia rise by 5% in H1 2020, exports - by 7%

July 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia totalled 13,800 tonnes in the first half of 2020, up by 5% year on year, whereas exports grew by 7% year on year, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to Russia increased to 5,800 tonnes from 4,000 tonnes in May. Seasonal factors and upcoming shutdowns for maintenance at the largest Russian plants became the main reason for higher imports. Thus, overall imports totalled 13,800 tonnes in January-June 2020 versus 13,100 tonnes a year earlier.

US resin accounted for the main increase in imports, and purchasing of polymer in Europe also rose significantly.

Russian producers reduced their SPVC exports last month because of stronger demand from the domestic market. June exports of suspension did not exceed 16,400 tonnes, compared to 19,200 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, overall PVC exports totalled 110,400 tonnes in January-June 2020 versus 102,900 tonnes a year earlier.
