Fibres Report July 2015 released
- Polyester fibre prices continue to fall in Asia, with Chinese pipeline inventories rising despite significant production restraint. China and India adopt aggressive export stances supported by falling freight costs. European and US suppliers are holding or increasing prices driven by firm raw material costs.
- Nylon prices are also falling, with rising stocks and severe financial challenges in Chinese textile filament. PA6 is following raw materials down; PA66 is becoming more aggressive, especially in Asian industrials. Nylon BCF continues to match market expectations.
- Viscose supply remains quite snug with some capacity off-line and prices therefore gently lifting: cheaper cotton will challenge this stance. Acrylic is running quite well and targeting recovery of capacity in South America and Europe. Polypropylene is weakening in USA and Asia but Europe is still suffering the after-effects of several Forces Majeures.
