PVC imports into Russia fell by 134% in Q1 2021, exports rose by 14%

April 23/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) in Russia reached about 7,500 tonnes in the first three months of the year, up 134% year on year. At the same time, exports decreased by 16%, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to Russia increased to 4,300 tonnes from 2,700 tonnes in March. High PVC prices in the domestic market and lower export prices for acetylene PVC in China have led to an increase in imports.

Thus, overall imports were 7,500 tonnes in January-March 2021, compared to 3,200 tonnes a year earlier, with PVC from China accounting for the main increase in imports. At the same time, despite rather high prices for PVC in foreign markets, Russian producers have increased export sales in favour of the domestic market.

The total export indicator for the first three months of the year amounted to about 55,400 tonnes against 48,700 tonnes a year earlier.
