According to ChemOrbis Import Statistics, China’s cumulative imports for LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE from Iran reached an all time high in the first seven months of 2016. This indicates that Iran’s main export destination for PE remains as China even after the sanctions on Iran were lifted completely as of early 2016 and the doors of exports to Europe were re-opened after a long while.

China imported 324,236 tons of LDPE from Iran in the first seven months of 2016. China’s LDPE imports from Iran increased by 23% on the year. Iran maintained its position in the first place in LDPE exports to China compared to 2015.

LLDPE imports from Iran surged significantly by 213% on the year to be reported at 106,122 tons in the first seven months of 2016 from 33,811 tons in the same period of last year. When looking at the imports by country, Iran rose to the fourth place so far this year from the 11th in 2015.

For HDPE, Iran’s exports increased by around 15% to reach 776,021 tons in the first seven months of 2016 compared to the same period of last year. Iran remained as the top supplier to China this year as well.
