April 29/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 823,700 tonnes in the first three months of 2021, up by 12% year on year. High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

March total PE production in Russia rose to 283,900 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 252,600 tonnes a month earlier, output of all PE grades increased. Thus, overall PE production reached 823,700 tonnes in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 734,700 tonnes a year earlier. Production of all PE grades grew, but HDPE accounted for the greatest increase.

The PE production structure by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

March total HDPE production reached 175,900 tonnes versus 152,500 tonnes a month earlier, all producers raised their capacity utilisation. Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 505,800 tonnes in the first three months of 2021, up by 15% year on year.

Last month"s total low density polyethylene (LDPE) production rose to 60,100 tonnes from 54,800 tonnes in February, Angarsk Polymers Plant and Tomskneftekhim increased their capacity utilisation. Thus, overall production of this PE grade totalled 178,200 tonnes over the stated period, up by 3% year on year.

March linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) production grew to 47,800 tonnes from 45,300 tonnes a month earlier, ZapSibNeftekhim increased its capacity utilisation. Overall LLDPE output rose to 139,700 tonnes in January-March 2021 from 122,100 tonnes a year earlier.
