PVC imports to Russia up by 3% in Jan-Jul 2021, exports down by 12%

August 27/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia totalled 28,700 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, up by 3% year on year. At the same time, exports decrease by 12%, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to Russia grew to 8,700 tonnes from 5,000 tonnes in June. Good seasonal demand and shutdowns for maintenance at two major Russian plants led to a surge in imports in July. Overall imports totalled 28,700 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, compared to 27,900 tonnes a year earlier, with resin from China accounting for the main increase in imports.

After a spike in May export sales, driven by high prices in foreign markets, exports of Russian SPVC decreased in the following months. 8,700 tonnes of PVC were exported in July versus 16,500 tonnes a month earlier. Overall exports totalled 117,900 tonnes in January-July 2021, compared to 133,600 tonnes a year earlier.
