Fibres Report January 2016 released
- All polyester markets saw price falls of around -5c/kg driven by uncertainty around oil prices and also by the aggressive stock sell-off by China in advance of the Lunar New Year holiday in February.
- Nylon textile filament prices in Asia saw steep falls and the financial status of the industry suggests inevitable insolvencies in 2016. Industrial filament prices also moved down, with PA66 beginning to face up to the PA6 challenge. BCF carpet yarns were largely unchanged in price.
- The viscose chain saw reduction in raw material costs and further sharp falls in fibre prices, but the market is beginning to stabilise. Cotton prices are stable but reduced cotton output expected. Wool prices are rising rapidly on fears of lower Australian production over 2016.
