PVC imports to Ukraine fell by 41% in January-May, exports remained steady

June 11/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 41% in the first five months of this year, compared to the same period in 2020 and reached about 10,600 tonnes. Export sales of Ukrainian PVC did not grow, despite record-high price levels in several regions of the world, according to MRC" DataScope.

Last month"s SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market increased to 2,000 tonnes from 2,200 tonnes in April, with European producers continuing serious export restrictions.  Overall SPVC imports reached 10,600 tonnes in January-May 2021, compared to 17,800 tonnes a year earlier.
Limited export quotas from European producers and high prices at North American ones were the main reason for such a serious drop in imports.
European producers with the share of about 98% of the total imports over the stated period were the key suppliers of PVC to the Ukrainian market. Last month, Karpatneftekhim decreased the volume of external sales significantly, the export sales of Ukrainian PVC amounted to 10,500 tonnes against 19,100 tonnes in April.

Overall, a little more than 90,000 tonnes were shipped for export in the first five months of 2021, compared to 89,600 tonnes a year earlier.
