If you take statistics of production of finished goods made of PP as a basis, then, unfortunately, your assessments of individual processing sectors are going to be incorrect in principle. The Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation does not take into account production of PP films by many large producers. There is a similar situation with production of polymer pipes. The Federal State Statistics Service takes into account processing volumes of only 128 film producers and 42 polymer pipes producers. At the same time, the Federal State Statistics Service does not take account of production figures of the largest producers (particularly, there are no data on production of PP pipes by Eurotrubplast Holding in 2007; official statistics do not provide any information on production of packaging at P&G or WBD, either; and there is a long list of such examples). The situation with official statistics on the injection molding market is simply catastrophic. They record output volumes of only one tenth of producers. Taking into account the aforesaid, our data on PP consumption by processing sectors essentially differ from all those published on the market.

Indeed, in accordance with commonly used reports, about 24% in the structure of overall PP supply belong to the packaging sector, 22% refer to the sector of films, and nearly 21% are covered by the mysterious sector of cultural and household goods. Can this structure be used to define PP processing technologies applied in the market? No, inasmuch as films can equally be included into the sector “Packaging and Wrapping Materials” as well as into the sector “Cultural and Household Goods”. The same, for example, refers to molded boxes or caps for PET bottles or to cosmetic bottles made with the help of EBM technology. Can this classification be used to tell PE, PP suppliers which grades and for which sectors (or, at least, with which MFR) should be offered to the market?

Not to delude players in the Russian polyprophylene market, we collected detailed statistics on PP supplies by all producers, operating in the Russian market, by each PP grade. We analyzed sales of all PP grades available in the Russian market over the course of the recent nine years. If data on imported grades can theoretically be collected, then the product mix of Russian polyprophylene producers can be found only in our Report.

Having collected summarized data on sales of specific PP grades, we were able to assess PP consumption volumes in each processing sector with greater accuracy. The data we obtained on production of films in Russia differ nearly two times from official statistics.

We studied PP traders’ sales and focused on end polyprophylene converters. For that we used more than a dozen of different sources of information, including detailed statistics on foreign-economic activity, production, financial indicators and inland transportation in the Russian Federation.

Major difficulties arose when we analyzed supply of equipment to each PP processing sector. It was especially difficult to distribute molding machines since they can also be used to process PE, PVC, HIPS, GPPS, ABS, etc. Distributing molding machines by polymers, we adhered to several criteria: converter’s sphere of business, brand of a molding machine and producers’ application instructions. As a result, each molding machine was identified to each producer related to either one or another processing sector, which, in its turn, was related to either one or another PP grade.

Separately, we made up the rating of the most significant investments made by converters. Accordingly, dynamics of capital investments into equipment demonstrate possibilities of further growth of each PE processing sector in the Russian Federation.

Each processing sector contains ratings of converters, made up on the basis of our own assessments of PP consumption, as well as ratings of sales of each PP grade by each technology, and, when needed, by processing sectors. That was done to define, which PP grades are in great demand in the Russian market in each business segment today, as well as to understand how to form your grade mix in each segment in the most efficient way.

Reasoning from data on investments into PP processing, as well as using statistics on inland transportation in Russia, we made up a complex picture of PP processing development in each region of the Russian Federation.

We also described general PP market development trends both in the world and in each region using assessments of the leading world analytical companies such as CMAI, Nexant and Townsend. Furthermore, we analyzed price dynamics over the course, using data of ICIS and Platts, as well as our own data from Price Reports.

One of the results of the unbiased analysis is our own forecast of potential projects on expansion of PP production capacities in Russia till 2025, as well as assessment of projects that are most likely to remain on paper.
