Ukrainian PVC imports down by 30% in January-November, exports down by 7%

December 17/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 30% in the first eleven months of this year, compared to the same period in 2019 and reached about 31,100 tonnes. Sales of Ukrainian PVC to foreign markets dropped by 7% year on year, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports into the Ukrainian market decreased to 2,100 tonnes from 2,100 tonnes in October, with North American PVC accounting for the decrease in shipments. Overall SPVC imports reached 31,100 tonnes in January-November, compared to 44,700 tonnes a year earlier.

At the same time, the increased demand from the domestic market amid growing capacity utilisation of the Ukrainian producer led to a decrease in export sales. European producers with the share of about 78% of the total imports over the stated period were the key suppliers of PVC to the Ukrainian market. Producers from the USA with the share of about 16% were the second largest suppliers.

Last month, Karpatneftekhim decreased the volume of external sales, due to a shutdown for a scheduled maintenance, the export sales of Ukrainian PVC amounted to 3,200 tonnes against 11,900 tonnes in October. Overall, about 139,500 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in January-November 2020, compared to 150,400 tonnes a year earlier.
