February 09/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 36% in January of this year, compared to the same period in 2020 and reached about 2,600 tonnes. Sales of Ukrainian PVC to foreign markets dropped by 25% year on year, according to a MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) imports into the Ukrainian market decreased to 2,600 tonnes from 4,100 tonnes in January 2020 and 2,400 tonnes in December a year earlier. Overall imports of suspension reached 33,400 tonnes in 2020, compared to 49,000 tonnes a year earlier.

At the same time, stronger demand from the domestic market amid the increased capacity utilisation of the Ukrainian producer led to lower export sales. European producers with the share of about 83% 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 15% were the second largest suppliers.

Last month, Karpatneftekhim decreased the volume of external sales, the export sales of Ukrainian PVC amounted to 19,700 tonnes against 26,300 tonnes in January 2020 and 15,800 tonnes in December 2020.
