Fibres Report May 2016 released
- Polyester fibre demand in China slowing as pipelines fill and prices are easing down due to weaker demand, excess capacity and lower PTA and MEG prices. Exceptions include PIF and low melt staple which can demand better prices. NA market seeing lower imports of spun yarn.
- Nylon textile demand and prices weaker than expected. PA66 prices exceed PA6 markedly as greater excess capacity is in PA6 – expect the premium for PA66 to erode as new PA66 capacity comes on-line in China.
- Viscose generally doing well, being seen in more fabrics and attracting investment. Acrylic fibres are getting finer; prices stable but margins squeezed by rising propylene. Polypropylene prices have peaked.
