Turkey slashes PE imports2 Aug 2019 / ChemCourier. Polyolefins Market Weekly / statistics

HDPE imports into Turkey have lessened by almost 12,500 t or 23% month on month in June. Those from Iran and the USA, which supplied almost 6,000 t less of the material in total than the previous month, declined most substantially. The only country Turkey hiked imports from was Thailand. The June consumption of the Thai commodity more than doubled compared to the first five months of 2019 combined.

LLDPE imports have dropped as well. Turkey’s consumption of the polymer has fallen to the level of winter months in June. Supply from the top three leading exporters (Saudi Arabia, the USA and Iran) has slumped. Such countries as India and Qatar used this situation to strengthen their position in the Turkish market.
