Polyethylene imports moved at the pre-crisis level in Ukraine

October 01/2009
MOSCOW (MRC) -- In August, polyethylene (PE) imports in Ukraine went up by 26% (to 29.5 kt) compared to the same period last year, and by 6%, as compared to the previous month – MRC’s analysts reporting.

In August, HDPE imports exceeded the level of July by 3% and moved at 12.8 kt.

The highest imports were recorded in the sector of film feedstock. Ukrainian converters and traders increased supply of film-grade material produced by TVK by 6%, as well as that of feedstock produced by Shurtan Gas-Chemical Plant and Chevron Phillips by seven and two times, respectively. In view of strong demand for film-grade HDPE in Russia, imports of inexpensive Russian PE dropped to 825 mt in Ukraine.
Supply of pipe-grade HDPE decreased nearly two times and moved at 2.6 kt. The main reason was low sales of PE pipes in the Ukrainian market.

LDPE imports went down by 23%.

LLDPE imports hiked more than two times. There is oversupply in the Ukrainian LLDPE market. There are sufficient volumes of feedstock of European producers, as well as of producers from Russia and Uzbekistan.

For more detailed information on the PE market, see DataScope report.
