Last month, external supplies of polyethylene to Ukraine amounted to slightly less than 21,900 tonnes against 22,900 tonnes in August, local companies reduced their purchases of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). Thus, overall PE imports reached 204,200 tonnes in January-September 2020, compared to 200,800 tonnes a year earlier. Imports of all grades of ethylene polymers increased, with LLDPE, demand for which subsided in all consumption sectors, being the only exception.

Overall HDPE imports exceeded 73,400 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020 versus 72,500 tonnes a year earlier.

September imports of low density polyethylene (LDPE) were slightly over 6,400 tonnes versus 7,300 tonnes a month earlier, producers from Azerbaijan and Russia reduced their export sales. Overall LDPE imports reached 60,900 tonnes over the stated period, compared to 58,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) were about 7,400 tonnes, compared to 8,300 tonnes in June, shipments of film grade LLDPE decreased. Overall LLDPE imports reached 59,300 tonnes in January-September 2020, compared to 60,800 tonnes a year earlier.
