MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports into the Ukrainian market totalled slightly over 113,000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by only 1% year on year. At the same time, only demand for homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) increased, as per MRC"s DataScope report.

October PP imports to Ukraine dropped to 11,800 tonnes from 12,500 tonnes a month earlier, demand for propylene copolymers subsided. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 113,000 tonnes in January-October 2020, compared to 112,300 tonnes a year earlier. Demand for all grades of propylene polymers decreased, whereas demand for homopolymer PP increased.

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

October imports of homopolymer PP to the Ukrainian market were 9,500 tonnes versus 9,000 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased their purchasing of PP in Saudi Arabia. Overall imports of homopolymer PP imports reached 86,800 tonnes in January-October 2020, compared to 85,600 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month"s imports of block copolymers of propylene  (PP block copolymers) were about 1,000 tonnes, compared to 1,700 tonnes in September, demand for injection moulding PP block copolymer subside. About 11,400 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported in the first ten months of 2020, compared to 12,100 tonnes a year earlier.

October imports of stat-copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymer) fell to 1,100 tonnes from 1,600 tonnes a month earlier, local companies reduced their purchasing of pipe grade PP random copolymers. Overall imports of PP random copolymer reached 12,900 tonnes in January-October 2020, compared to 13,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers totalled about 1,900 tonnes over the stated period.
