Earthquakes in Japan to affect the world market of polymers

March 25/2011
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Earthquakes in Japan resulted in deficit of some volume polymers in the world market, particularly, PET and PVC, according to MRC analysts.

In Infographics prepared by MRC analysts you will be able to see the structure of polymers exports from Japan to the external markets, placement of main capacities and zone of tsunami and earthquake. That will help to estimate the situation objectively and make corresponding conclusions. Such volume polymers, as PET and PVC, suffered the worst from nature disasters.

Japan is the biggest Asian exporter of paraxylene, main raw material for TPA production, and, in its turn, PET. Over 2010 Japan produced 3.2 mln t of paraxylene, 700 KT of which were converted within the country and about 2.5 mln were exported to the Asian and European countries. 

The second in capacities is PVC, one of main polymers in the structure of  Japanese exports. In 2010 PVC exports from Japan made about 680 KT. Suspension of separate PVC producers has already resulted in considerable growth of prices for Asian and North American resin.
