PP imports into Kazakhstan increased by 7% in January - September, exports down by 6%

November 19/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of polypropylene (PP) in Kazakhstan grew to 29,600 tonnes in first nine months of this year, up 7% compared to the same period of 2019. PP exports decreased by 6%, reported MRC analysts.

September PP shipments to Kazakhstan grew to 2,500 tonnes from 2,000 tonnes a month earlier, local converters decreased their purchasing of homopolymer PP in Azerbaijan. Total PP imports into the country reached 29,600 tonnes in January - September 2020, compared with 27,500 tonnes in the same time a year earlier. At the same time, the forced shutdown for a turnaround at the local producer"s production capacities led to lower export sales.

September imports of homopolymer PP and propylene copolymers increased to 1,700 tonnes and 820 tonnes, respectively, versus over 1,300 tonnes and 710 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly increased their PP purchases from Azerbaijan and South Korea. Overall imports of homopolymer PP and propylene copolymers reached 24,000 tonnes and 5,600 tons, respectively, in January-September 2020, compared to 22,000 tonnes and 5,600 tonnes a year earlier.

Kazakhstan"s PP exports over the first nine months dropped to 17,300 tonnes, whereas this figure was 18,400 tonnes a year earlier.
Such a significant decrease in export volumes was due, among other things, to the long shutdown of the local producer, the Neftekhim LTD Company in April- June of the current year.
