The CIS Market of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Co-polymers

     Co-polymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate are in-between “pure” polymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate. As is known, polyethylene is a relatively rigid, non-polar, water-repellent thermoplastic material while polyvinyl acetate is a flexible, polar, hydrophile polymer, which possesses good adhesive properties.
     Our article consists of two parts. The first one is devoted to ethylene vinyl acetate with a high content of ethylene chains (EVA). Although the CIS states accounted for only 0.3% (7,600 tpy) of the world’s EVA output, the consumption of such materials in the post Soviet states is growing by leaps and bounds. The only producer of ethylene vinyl acetate with a high content of ethylene chains (EVA) in the post-Soviet countries is Neftehimsevilen JSC (Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan). EVA manufactured by this company under the trade mark Sevilen won recognition in the CIS countries as well as worldwide. Apart from EVA, we also consider the market of ethylene vinyl acetate with a high acetate content (VAE). The CIS market of VAE co-polymers has been showing an impressive growth in recent years. In particular, the Russian imports of VAE dispersions for 2007 displayed a 78.2% YOY increase to 7,100 tonnes.
     Our article gives a thorough analysis of the CIS market of ethylene and vinyl acetate co-polymers.
