Welcome to PCI Fibres
PCI Fibres is a specialist consultancy to the fibres and related markets. Our services include multi- and single-client studies. We provide monthly, quarterly and annual reports covering the major natural and manufactured fibres such as acrylic, nylon, polyester, viscose, cotton and wool as well as certain raw materials and related products, including recycled fibres.
Fibres Report June 2015 released
- Asian polyester markets are slowing, with controlled reductions in fibre and yarn prices. Chinese polyester yarn stock levels are high and competition for regional markets is intensifying. European and US producer prices are still rising on specific currency and market conditions.
- Nylon filament volumes are stagnant and pricing largely unchanged in all regions, but markets are slowing. Financial challenges for the Chinese industry are mounting with stocks and receivables rising. But US and EU BCF activity remains positive.
- Viscose and acrylic fibre utilisation rates remain high as they take share from cotton. Both are seeing small reductions in raw material cost, with fibre prices following. China could start selling 1 million mt from its strategic cotton stocks in July and markets are nervous. European PP staple remains very tight but should ease within the next month.
