Ukrainian PVC imports down by 26% in Jan-Aug 2021, exports up by 17%

September 09/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine fell in the first eight months of 2021 by 26% year on year, totalling 18,500 tonnes. Export sales of Ukrainian PVC rose by 17% year on year partially due to record high prices in a number of regions of the world, according to MRC"s DatasScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market decreased to 2,700 tonnes from 3,100 tonnes in July, Ukrainian companies reduced their shipments of polymer from China. Overall SPVC imports reached 18,500 tonnes in January-August 2021, compared to 25,100 tonnes a year earlier. Limited export quotas of European and North American producers were the main reason for such a major fall in imports.

European producers with the share of about 86% of the total imports over the stated period were the key suppliers of resin to the Ukrainian market.

Last month, Karpatneftekhim maintained its export  sales at a good level, export sales of Ukrainian resin were 13,300 tonnes versus 13,600 tonnes in July. Overall, slightly less than 129,700 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in the first eight months of 2021, compared to 111,000 tonnes a year earlier.
