The prices of several textile raw materials increased in Chinese markets during the third quarter of 2012.

The prices of acrylic fibre, polyester filament yarn and polyester staple fibre rose in the range of 14.5 percent to 18.8 percent during the three-month period.
For example, the market price of polyester staple fibre 1.4D x 38mm grew from 9,500 yuan/ton at the beginning of July to 11,050 yuan/ton at the end of September, registering an increase of 16.32 percent.
