PP imports to Belarus up 3% in January-September

November 20/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus increased to about 83,900 tonnes in first nine months of this year, up 3% year on year, compared to the same period of 2019. The greatest increase in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

September PP imports to Belarus rose to 11,600 tonnes, whereas this figure was 9,500 tonnes a month earlier, local companies raised their purchasing of all propylene polymers in Europe and Russia. Total PP imports into the country reached 83,900 tonnes in January - September, compared with 81,500 tonnes year on year. The demand for  homopolymer PP increased, but demand for propylene copolymers decreased.

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

September imports of homopolymer PP reached 8,300 tonnes versus 7,100 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Europe and Russia increased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 61,300 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 12% year on year.

September imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were about  3,300 tonnes versus 2,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased significantly their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian and Middle Eastern producers.

Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 22,600 tonnes in January-September 2020, down by 16% year on year.
