May 21/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus decreased to about 26,900 tonnes in 2020, down 0.8% year on year, compared to the same period of 2020. The greatest increase in imports accounted for homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

March PP imports into Belarus rose to 10,200 tonnes from 9,100 tonnes a month earlier. Local companies increased their purchases of injection moulding propylene copolymers in Russia and in Middle East. Total PP imports into the country reached 26,900 tonnes in January - March, compared with 27,100 tonnes year on year. The demand only 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.

March imports of homopolymer PP increased to 6,900 tonnes from 6,700 tonnes a month earlier, purchases of injection moulding homopolymer PP in Russia increased. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached  19,500 tonnes in the first three months of the year, up by 0.4% year on year.

March imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were about  3,300 tonnes versus 2,400 tonnes a month earlier, local companies increased significantly their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian and Middle Eastern producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 7,300 tonnes in January-March 2021, down by 4% year on year.
