MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus increased to about 115,600 tonnes in 2020, up 5.7% year on year, compared to the same period of 2019. The greatest increase in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

Local companies increased their purchases of injection moulding propylene copolymers in Russia. Total PP imports into the country reached 115,600 tonnes in January - December, compared with 109,400 tonnes year on year.

The demand for  homopolymer PP increased, but demand for propylene copolymers decreased. The structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

December imports of homopolymer PP increased to 7,900 tonnes from 7,600 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Russia increased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 84,500 tonnes in 2019, up by 12.4% year on year.

December imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were about  2,900 tonnes versus 1,800 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased significantly their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers.
