The domestic polyester filament market start has started to decline in recent days, from its previous state of being in a stalemate.

Quotations from enterprises have become flexible, which has basically set a downward adjustment for prices. Business inventories are still at high level of about 80 percent.

Trading sentiment in PTA market is poor and the market continues to edge lower amid weak adjustment.

MEG market is weak and mainstream talks for domestic goods are around 7,300 Yuan / ton and negotiation for overseas goods is around US $1,000 / ton.

Polyester chip market continues its weak performance and mainstream talks are at about 10,500 Yuan / ton in terms of cash payment in the market.
