October 20/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports into Belarus dropped in the first eight months of 2020 by 1.6% year on year to 72,300 tonnes. Only propylene copolymers accounted for weaker demand, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

August PP imports to Belarus rose to 9,500 tonnes, whereas this figure was 7,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies raised their purchasing of all propylene polymers in Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 72,300 tonnes in January-August 2020, compared to 73,500 tonnes a year earlier, demand for propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) increased, whereas demand for propylene copolymers decreased.

The supply structure by PP grades looked the following way over the stated period.

August imports of homopolymer PP reached 7,100 tonnes versus 6,300 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Russia increased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 53,000 tonnes in the first eight months of 2020, up by 7% year on year.

August imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 2,300 tonnes versus 1,000 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly raised their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 19,300 tonnes in January-August 2020, down by 19.6% year on year.
