Market Note:
PX prices continued to rise early this year, providing the main driving force to promote PTA price increases. So weakening of PX prices in future may lead to fall in price of PTA too. PX prices which have soared since early this year also carry a high risk of falling. Therefore, a hike or fall in prices of either of these two key raw materials could impact the price of the other.

Present hurdles:
§ With the Spring Festival approaching, weaving factories have cut operating rates, as a large number of workers are going on leave.
§ After the holiday period, textile and garment enterprises will continue to face difficult labor problems.
§ Short-term demand will be difficult to lift the PTA price after Chinese Spring Festival.
