PP imports to Belarus up by 6% in Jan-Oct 2020

December 21/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports into Belarus rose in the first ten months of 2020 by 6% year on year to 95,500 tonnes. At the same time, homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) accounted for the greatest increase in demand, according to MRC"s DataScope report. 

October PP imports to the Republic of Belarus were 11,600 tonnes, which virtually corresponded to the same figure a month earlier. Local companies maintained high volumes of purchases of all grades of propylene polymers in Europe and Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 95,500 tonnes in January-October 2020, compared to 90,000 tonnes a year earlier; demand only for homopolymer PP increased, whereas demand for propylene copolymers decreased. The supply structure by PP grades looked the following way over the stated period.

October imports of homopolymer PP dropped to 7,700 tonnes from 8,300 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP from Middle Eastern producers decreased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 69,000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by 14% year on year.

October imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 3,900 tonnes versus 3,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly raised their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Middle Eastern producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 26,500 tonnes in January-October 2020, down by 11% year on year.
