PE production in Russia up by 8% in Jan-Oct 2021

December 03/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 2,646,000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2021, up by 8% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

October total PE production in Russia dropped to 226,600 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 237,900 tonnes a month earlier; Kazanorgsintez, Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Stavrolen"s production capacities were shut for maintenance. Thus, overall PE output reached 2,646,000 tonnes in January-October 2021, compared to  2,449,100 tonnes a year earlier. Production of all PE grades increased, with LLDPE accounting for the greatest increase in the output.

The PE production structure by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

October high density polyethylene (HDPE) production  reached 144,000 tonnes versus 146,400 tonnes a month earlier, Kazanorgsintez and Stavrolen were shut for repairs. Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 1,618,400 tonnes in the first ten months of 2021, up by 7% year on year.

October total low density polyethylene (LDPE) production grew to 47,300 tonnes from 44,100 tonnes in September. Thus, overall output of this PE grade totalled 533,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 3% year on year.

October LLDPE production decreased to 35,300 tonnes from 47,300 tonnes a month earlier, all producers reduced their LLDPE output partially because of short shutdowns for maintenance. Overall LLDPE output rose to 494,600 tonnes in January-October 2021 from 424,200 tonnes a year earlier.
