PVC imports to Russia down by 20% in 2020

January 20/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia totalled about 40,800 tonnes in 2020, down by 20% year on year. At the same time, exports decreased by 6%, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to Russia dropped to 0,600 tonnes from 1,600 tonnes in November. High PVC prices in foreign markets and a seasonal decline in demand in the last two months have put serious pressure on import purchases of PVC from Russian companies.

Thus, overall imports were 40,800 tonnes in January-December 2020, compared to 50,900 tonnes a year earlier, with PVC from China and the United States accounting for the main reduction in imports. PVC shipments from these countries decreased by almost a third over the stated period.

Good demand for PVC from the domestic market allowed Russian producers to reduce export sales in 2020 compared to a year earlier, including in the last two months of the year. Thus, the total export of Russian suspension PVC amounted to about 10,200 tonnes (excluding shipments to Belarus and Kazakhstan) and 12,800 tonnes, respectively, against 17,000 tonnes and 19,100 tonnes a year earlier in December and November last year.

Thus, overall exports of PVC from Russia totalled 192,700 tonnes in 2020 versus 204,400 tonnes a year earlier.
