PE imports in Russia decreased by 12% in January-August

September 28/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of polyethylene (PE) into Russia decreased by 12% year on year to 428,900 tonnes in January-August.
High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main decrease in imports, according to MRC DataScope report.

August HDPE imports fell to 49,500 tonnes from 51,400 tonnes a month earlier, with linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounting for the main decrease. Overall PE imports totalled 428,900 tonnes in the first eight months of 2020, compared to 489,300 tonnes a year earlier.
The supply of high-density polyethylene (LDPE) and other ethylene copolymers increased, while imports of other types of ethylene polymers decreased.

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

August HDPE imports rose to 18,700 tonnes from 17,800 tonnes a month earlier, shipments from Russia and Turkmenistan increased. Overall external supply of HDPE in the country decreased to 183,900 tonnes in the first eight months of 2020, down by 24% year on year. The largest decrease in supplies was due to film and pipe HDPE.

Last month"s LDPE output was 11,400 tonnes, which was virtually corresponded to the July figure. Total imports of low density polyethylene (LDPE) in the country reached 74,500 tonnes in January -August 2020, up 14% year on year.

August LLDPE imports into Russia increased to about 11,300 tonnes against 13,400 tonnes a month earlier, local converters increased their purchases of film PE. Overall LLDPE imports totalled 107,500 tonnes in the first eight months of the year, down 10% year on year.

Last month, external deliveries of other ethylene polymers, including ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), amounted to 8,100 tonnes against 8,800 tonnes in July. The overall imports of other ethylene polymers exceeded 63,100 tonnes over the stated period versus 63,100 tonnes a year earlier.
