PE production in Russia up by 9% in January-April

June 04/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 1, 080,000 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, up by 9% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

April total PE production in Russia fell to 256,700 tonnes, whereas this figure was 283,900 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers reduced the production of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE). Thus, overall PE production reached 1,080,500 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, compared to 993,000 tonnes a year earlier. The main increase in production volumes accounted on linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), while the production of LDPE decreased.

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

April HDPE production  reached 147,700 tonnes versus 175,900 tonnes a month earlier, Kazanorgsintez and ZapSibNeftekhim raised their HDPE output. Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 653,500 tonnes in January-April 2020, up by 9% year on year.

Last month, the total output of LDPE decreased to 50,100 tonnes against 60,100 tonnes in March, Tomskneftekhim and Kazanorgsintez reduced their capacity utilisation (due to a shutdown for scheduled preventive maintenance). Thus, overall production of this PE grade totalled 228,400 tonnes over the stated period, down by 2% year on year.

April LLDPE production rose to 58,900 tonnes from 47,800 tonnes a month earlier, all producers increased their output. Overall LLDPE output rose to 198,600 tonnes in January-April 2021 from 159,100 tonnes a year earlier.
