According to ChemOrbis Import Statistics, Uzbekistan was ranked as the third largest HDPE supplier of Turkey in May with shipments reaching 9,177 tons. The other top two suppliers, meanwhile, were South Korea with 11,845 tons and Saudi Arabia with 9,543 tons.

Looking at imports for the origin recorded during the first five months of the year, Turkey imported 27,284 tons of Uzbek HDPE so far in 2016. In the January-May period, meanwhile, Uzbek HDPE was ranked as the fourth largest HDPE supplier of Turkey.

Market players comment that Uzbek PE is subject to 3% duty in Turkey and therefore, it is attracting buying interest in Turkey due to the duty advantage over other origins like the Middle East, Iran and the US which are subject to 6.5% duty in Turkey.
