PVC imports to Russia down by 68% in January, exports down by 15%

February 25/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia slightly exceeded 500 tonnes in January, down by 68% year on year. At the same time, exports decreased by 15%, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s external supplies of SPVC in Russia fell to 500 tonnes against 1,600 tonnes and 6,000 tonnes in January and December last year.
High prices of PVC in the foreign markets and long New Year holidays 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. At the same time, despite rather high prices for PVC in foreign markets, Russian producers have reduced export sales in favour of the domestic market.

Thus, the total export of Russian suspension PVC in January amounted to about 14,500 tonnes (excluding shipments to Belarus and Kazakhstan) against 17,000 tonnes and 11,700 tonnes a year earlier in January and December last year. Thus, overall exports of PVC from Russia totalled 192,700 tonnes in 2020 versus 204,400 tonnes a year earlier.
