PE Jan-Nov 2021 imports to Kazakhstan down by 9%
MOSCOW (MRC)–Polyethylene (PE) imports into Kazakhstan fell in the first 11 months of 2021 by 9% year on year, with high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounting for the decrease, said MRC analysts.
November PE imports to Kazakhstan reached 15,900 tonnes versus 14,000 tonnes a month earlier, with Russian producers and the Uzbek manufacturer increasing their footprint in the local market after scheduled shutdowns for maintenance.
In January-November, purchases of low density polyethylene (LDPE) grew significantly, whereas HDPE and LLDPE imports decreased.
