The production of LLDPE in Russia increased by 32% in 2019

According to the Market Report survey the output of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) in Russia amounted to 232.3 thousand tons last year, which is 32% more than in 2018. All manufacturers increased its production volumes, and the enterprise in Tobolsk also started its production of LLDPE. The largest growth was demonstrated by “Kazanorgsintez” company, the production of which was focused on metallocene linear polyethylene in December.

The final indicator of LLDPE production in “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” company reached the level of 196.6 thousand tons in 2019, which is 17% more than last year.

In the last month of the year “ZapSibNeftekhim”, a new manufacturer, began supplying LLDPE to the domestic market. The capacities of the new production make it possible to produce about 700 thousand tons of LLDPE per year. As a result, in 2020 we can expect an even greater increase in the production of linear polyethylene.
