PP imports to Ukraine decreased by 7% in January-August

September 16/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ukraine's polypropylene (PP) imports totalled about 82,700 tonnes in January-August of this year, down 7% year on year.
Only some grades of propylene copolymers imports have grown, according to MRC's DataScope.

August PP imports to Ukraine decreased to 10,900 tonnes from 12,200 tonnes a month earlier, local companies decreased their purchasing of homopolymer PP.  Overall imports of propylene polymers reached  82,700 tonnes in January-August 2021, compared to 88,700 tonnes a year earlier. The main decrease in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, while imports of some propylene copolymers increased.

Structure of PP supplies over the reported period looked as follows.

August imports of propylene homopolymers to the Ukrainian market decreased to 8,000 tonnes due to limited export quotas from the Middle East and Russian producers, while a month earlier this figure was about 9,300 tonnes. Thus, overall homopolymer PP imports reached 61,400 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, down by 10% year on year.

Last month's imports of block copolymers of propylene  (PP block copolymers) were about 1,200 tonnes, compared to 1,100 tonnes in July, a small increase in supplies of injection moulding PP block copolymers was seen. About 8,100 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported in the eight months of this year, compared to 8,800 tonnes a year earlier.

August imports of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) virtually remained at the previous month's level, totalling 1,500 tonnes. Total PP random copolymer imports to Ukraine reached 10,900 tonnes in the first eight months of the year, compared with 10,200 tonnes year on year.

Overall imports of other propylene copolymers totalled slightly over 2,300 tonnes over the stated period.
