October 21/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports to Belarus rose in the first eight months of 2021 by 9.4% year on year to 79,100 tonnes. Demand for all grades of propylene polymers increased, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

August PP imports into the Republic of Belarus dropped to 9,400 tonnes from 9,500 tonnes a month earlier. Local companies raised their purchases of propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP), whereas their purchased of propylene copolymers decreased. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 79,100 tonnes in January-August 2021, compared to 72,300 tonnes a year earlier, demand for all grades of propylene polymers increased, with homopolymer PP accounting for the greatest growth in demand.

The supply structure by PP grades looked the following way over the stated period.

August imports of homopolymer PP grew to 7,600 tonnes from 7,200 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Russia increased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached  58,100 tonnes in January-August 2021, up by 9.7% year on year.

August imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 1,800 tonnes versus 2,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies reduced their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 20,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 8.6% year on year.
