MOSCOW (MRC) -- Over the five months, investments in production of PS heat insulation and decoration materials grew 6.5 times compared to 2010, according to MRC DataScope: Equipment. Three fourths of investments fell at production of XPS-insulation.
According to MRC analyst Asima Mamedova, the growth of capacities in this sector made 12 KTa. In the sector of EPS-plates and decorative products capacities grew by 11 KT.
During 2009-2010 we had been observing considerable reduction of investments in the building sector. Main market players didn't hurry to increase their capacities, as a result, capital investment reduced 10 times compared to peak 2008, Asima Mamedova said.
Return to pre-crisis consumption of feedstock in this sector stimulated main market players to expand their production sites. Among such companies: Tehnonikol and Tehnolog (XPS-plates), Mosstroy-31 (EPS-plates), VBM Pro-Rjazan that produces formworks.
Detailed analysis on investments in equipment for polymers processing by technologies and sectors, finished goods and companies is presented in a monthly MRC report DataScope: Equipment.
