PE production in Russia grew 61% in 2020

January 29/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 2,987,000 tonnes in 2020, up by 61% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

December PE production in Russia decreased to 265,100 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 272,800 tonnes a month earlier, as ZapSibNeftekhim decreased its  capacity utilisation in the first month of calender winter. Thus, overall PE production reached 2,987,000 tonnes in 2020, compared to 1, 857,600 tonnes a year earlier. Production of all PE grades increased, with low density polyethylene (LDPE) being the exception.

The structure of PE output by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

December high density polyethylene (HDPE) production  reached 160,400 tonnes versus 158,600 tonnes a month earlier, Kazanorgsintez and ZapSibNeftekhim raised their output. Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 1,825,000 tonnes in January-December 2020, up by 90% year on year.

December low density polyethylene (LDPE) production grew to 60,200 tonnes from 55,500 tonnes in November,  Kazanorgsintez and Tomskneftekhim increased their output. Thus, overall production of this PE grade totalled 634,800 tonnes over the stated period, down by 1% year on year.

December LLDPE production decreased to 44,500 tonnes from 58,700 tonnes a month earlier, Kazanorgsintez shut production, and ZapSibNeftekhim reduced capacity utilisation. Overall LLDPE production grew to 527,400 tonnes in 2020 from 254,600 tonnes a year earlier.
