Index of chemical production in Russia grew by 4.9% in H1 2020

July 24/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia's output of chemical products rose in June 2020 by 2.6% year on year. However, production of basic chemicals increased year on year by 4.9% in the first six months of 2020, according to Rosstat's data.

According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the output in January-June. Production of benzene was 106,000 tonnes in June 2020, compared to 110,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of this product reached 721,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 3.9% year on year.

June production of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) were 106,000 tonnes (100% of the basic substance) versus 112,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of caustic soda totalled 649,000 tonnes in the first six months of 2020, up by 0.9% year on year.

2,032,000 tonnes of mineral fertilizers (in terms of 100% nutrients) were produced in June 2020 versus 2,283,000  tonnes a month earlier. Overall, Russian plants produced slightly less than 12,400,000 tonnes of fertilizers in January-June 2020, up by 3.5% year on year.

Last month's production of polymers in primary form fell to 791,000 tonnes from 820,000 tonnes in May partially because of a scheduled shutdown for maintenance at ZapSibNeftekhim.

Output of polymers in primary form totalled 4,900,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 14.8%  year on year.
