Ukrainian PVC imports down by 23% in Jan-Sep 2021, exports up by 17%

October 12/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine fell in the first nine months of 2021 by 23% year on year, totalling 20,800 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 2,300 tonnes from 2,700 tonnes in August, Ukrainian companies reduced their shipments of polymer from the USA. Overall SPVC imports reached 20,800 tonnes in January-September 2021, compared to 26,800 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 16,300 tonnes versus 13,300 tonnes in August. Overall, slightly less than 146,000 tonnes of PVC were shipped for export in the first nine months of 2021, compared to 124,300 tonnes a year earlier.
