U.S. hemical production moves lower in June

August 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- According to the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the U.S. Chemical Production Regional Index (U.S. CPRI), fell by 1.1 percent in June on a three-month moving average (3MMA) basis following a 2.0 percent decline in May and a 3.0 percent decline in April, said Americanchemistry.

During June, chemical output fell across all regions, with the steepest declines in the Gulf Coast, Midwest and West Coast regions.  

Deemed an essential industry by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, chemical production eased on a 3MMA basis, with declines in segments except chlor-alkali, industrial gases, other basic inorganic chemicals, and consumer products, which were slightly higher. Within several major segments, production of some chemical materials increased, including supply chains tied to PPE and disinfection products.

As MRC informed earlier, 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 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.
