Ukrainian polyethylene market down 7.6%

February 09/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Estimated polyethylene consumption went down to 293 kt in Ukraine, last year Ц according to MRC Annual Report.
Ukrainian polyethylene market down 7.6%

Domestic polyethylene consumption continues to depend on imports. The markets of LDPE dropped by 3% (to 108 kt), HDPE Ц by 11% (to 132 kt), LLDPE Ц went down by 11% (to 46.6 kt).


The HDPE balance is expectedly to change when production of the 4810 film grade is resumed in Kalush. Allegedly, Lukoil will launch HDPE production either at the end of 2010 or in the first half of 2011.

Against the background of decreased polyethylene imports, sales of a number of feedstock suppliers, contrariwise, went up. It is worthwhile to mark out Kazanorgsyntez, Polymir and Dow. The general structure of polyethylene imports by grades did not change greatly, compared to 2008.
