PE imports to Russia decreased by 13% in January-July

September 01/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - The imports of polyethylene (PE) to Russia decreased by 13% in January-July of this year and reached the level of 337,100 tonnes. The largest decrease in imports accounted for high-density polyethylene (HDPE), according to MRC"s DataScope.

July PE imports exceeded 53,000 tonnes against 43,200 tonnes a month earlier, with HDPE and linear polyethylene (LLDPE) imports increased most of all. In general, the total volume of imports of ethylene polymers amounted to 337,100 tonnes for seven months of this year against 388,400 tonnes a year earlier. The main decrease in imports accounted for HDPE, and supply of linear polyethylene also significantly decreased.

The structure of HDPE imports by processing technologies for the period under review was as follows.

July imports of HDPE rose to 19,800  tonnes against 15,300 tonnes a month earlier, supplies of film and pipe polyethylene increased. In general, in January - July of this year, the total volume of external supplies of this type of polyethylene amounted to 118,200 tonnes, which is 29% less than a year earlier. The largest decrease in supplies accounted for film and blow moulding HDPE.

Last month, imports of low-pressure polyethylene (LDPE) did not exceed 9,500 tonnes, while in June this figure was 8,700 tonnes. During the period under review, the total volume of LDPE imports to Russia reached the level of 66,000 tonnes, which is 6% more than a year earlier.

July imports of linear polyethylene reached the level of 13,900 tonnes against 10,100 tonnes a month earlier, increased external purchases of film polyethylene in Europe and Saudi Arabia. The total volume of LLDPE imports amounted to 89,600 tonnes in the seven months of this year, down 15% year on year.

Last month, imports of other ethylene polymers, including ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), amounted to 9,900 tonnes against 9,200 tonnes in June. In general, for the period under review, the total volume of external supplies of other ethylene polymers reached the level of 62,000 tonnes against 55,000 tonnes a year earlier.
