Polyester prices are now retreating in china after experiencing a sharp increase in the past two weeks. Staple fiber prices are less resisting than filament yarn prices. Spun yarn makers were unable passing the full rise in their costs on to their customers.

The German market continued attracting about 23% of total EU clothing imports in the last year. Shipments began sliding to the UK. While they strongly rose to Italy in value terms and fell in volume terms. Spain remained the most dynamic import market amid largest European destinations.

EU cotton denim imports significantly fell in the last year, reflecting a new decline in denim clothing production in Europe. Spanish imports of low-cost fabrics from morocco however rose while Tunisian shipments of higher-priced products heavily fell. Turkish suppliers continued dominating a rapidly collapsing European market.

Cotton prices further rose in the last week in New York, with new increases being also reported in Pakistan, India and china. US. origins continue dominating the international market but spinners are now expected to suspend buying in order to stabilize cotton prices.

Polyester intermediate prices began slightly retreating over the weekend in Asia, after the recent rally finally lost steam. Prices could now stabilize at significantly higher levels than three months ago. Coming trend will heavily depend on the reality of the announced recovery in china's textile and apparel exports.
