Fibres Report April 2016 released
- Polyester prices eased down after post-New Year boom but rising raw materials now stabilise price points. Chinese boost to bank-lending helps pipeline liquidity and utilisation rates, possibly contributing to a stock bubble. Asian polyester industrial suppliers continue hard line on prices.
- Nylon’s reaction to higher oil prices was slower than polyester. Now Asian nylon prices are moving gently ahead and this should continue. European and American nylon textile filament pricing is stable but raw material contracts temporarily push tyrecord and airbag yarn prices down for Q2.
- Viscose fibre prices have peaked out, but still-increasing DWP costs will limit the decline. Acrylic also faces higher raw material costs, supporting fibre values even out of season. Cotton prices hit y-t-d high on lower production forecasts but face uncertainty of China reserve sales.
