April 26/2016

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall exports of polypropylene (PP) from Russia decreased in the first three months of 2016 by 22% year on year, totalling 96,100 tonnes. All Russian producers reduced their export sales, according to MRC ScanPlast report.

All Russian producers cut their export sales of propylene polymers, with Poliom and Neftekhimia accounting for the greatest decline in exports.

In general, Tobolsk-Polymer, Russia"s largest PP producer, is the key exporter. Its share accounted for about 56% in the total exports over the stated period. Poliom with shipments of 13,800 tonnes is the second largest exporter, whereas Neftekhimia with 6,500 tonnes is the third largest supplier for export.

Meanwhile, China, Belarus and Turkey are the key export destinations. Overall exports of Russian PP into these countries totalled 16,600  tonnes, 15,800 tonnes and 10,000 tonnes, respectively, in the first three months of the year. Belgium and Ukraine with 11,400 tonnes and 6,000 tonnes, respectively, are also included in the top five importers.
