PP imports to Belarus grew by 5% in Jan-Nov 2020

January 22/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall polypropylene (PP) imports into Belarus rose in the first eleven months of 2020 by 5% year on year to 104,900 tonnes. At the same time, only homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) accounted for the increase in demand, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

November PP imports into the Republic of Belarus dropped to 9,400 tonnes from 11,600 tonnes a month earlier. Local companies decreased their purchases of injection moulding propylene copolymers in Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 104,900 tonnes in January-November 2020, compared to 99,800 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.

November imports of homopolymer PP dropped to 7,600 tonnes from 7,700 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Russia decreased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 76,600 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2020, up by 13% year on year.

November imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 1,800 tonnes versus 3,900 tonnes a month earlier, local companies significantly reduced their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 28,300 tonnes in January-November 2020, down by 12% year on year.
