PP imports in Russia grew by 19% in January-August

September 30/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polypropylene (PP) imports into Russia grew by 19% year on year to 143,200 tonnes in the eight months of 2020.
Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Russian companies significantly raised their purchasing of PP in foreign markets in August partially because of a major increase in demand, imports were 21,200 tonnes versus 17,200 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, overall PP imports into Russia reached 143,200 tonnes in January-August 2020, compared to 120,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Purchasing of all grades of propylene polymers in foreign markets increased, with homopolymer PP imports accounting for the most noticeable rise. Overall, the structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

August imports of homopolymer PP were about 9,700 tonnes versus 8,200 tonnes a month earlier, shipments of injection moulding homopolymer PP from Uzbekistan increased. Thus, overall imports of homopolymer PP to Russia totalled 60,900 tonnes in the first eight months of 2020, compared to 38,200 tonnes a year earlier.

August imports of PP block copolymers in Russia were about 5,100 tonnes against 4,200 tonnes in July on decreased demand for pipe PP.
Imports of PP block copolymers into Russia reached 38,700 tonnes in January-August 2020, compared to 37,200 tonnes a year earlier.
August imports of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymer) grew to 4,000 tonnes from 2,100 tonnes a month earlier, the main increase in supplies accounted on pipe producers due to a shortage of domestic raw materials.

Total imports of propylene copolymers in Russia were 23,500 tonnes in January - August 2020, compared with 20,800 tonnes year on year.
Russia"s imports of other polymers of propylene totalled about 20,200 tonnes in the first eight months of the year, compared to 23,900 tonnes a year earlier.
