According to the latest MRC data analysis report, in the first four months of 2019, Russian polypropylene (PP) imports fell by 7% year-on-year, with homopolymer polypropylene dropping the most. Although the import of Russian polypropylene in April increased from 13,900 tons in March to 18,700 tons. However, compared with 62,000 tons in the same period last year, the total amount of polypropylene imported from Russia from January to April this year decreased to 57,900 tons.
In April, Russia imported about 5,600 tons of polypropylene block copolymers, compared with 3,500 tons in March, due to increased demand for pipes and injection-molded polypropylene. From January to April this year, Russia imported polypropylene block copolymer reached 16,000 tons, compared with 16,200 tons in the same period last year.
Due to the increase in pipeline polypropylene purchases, the polypropylene random copolymer imported in April was about 3,600 tons, compared with 3,400 tons imported a month ago. From January to April, the total number of polypropylene random copolymers imported from Russia was 11,400 tons, compared with 10,800 tons in the same period last year. Other propylene polymers imported by Russia in the first four months of this year were about 11,600 tons, compared with 14,000 tons imported in the same period last year.
