Mixed trends observed in textile raw materials market
Mar '11
On Monday, Chinese markets of various textile materials witnessed a mixed trend because of uncertain market conditions. Though the cash prices of raw materials are at lower level, traders are not interested in fresh buying. Due to this factor, market has witnessed weak sentiments.

At present, the aggregate cash prices of raw materials are at lower level but downstream purchases of polyester filament is not steady. Though weaving and texturing companies do not have enough filament stocks, they are showing interest in covering short positions by the end of the month. Because of this tendency, short-term prices of polyester filament are expected to remain at a high and wide range.

In PTA market, spot prices slide downward and MEG price moved sideways. On the other hand, semi-dull and super bright polyester chips extended their strong positions. CDP chip prices showed stability while PET bottle chip price was under correction.

In acrylic varieties, staple fiber 1.5D × 38mm, acrylic top 3D × 102mm were under price adjustment and CPL, nylon 6 chip prices witnessed stability. .

Because of steady demands from local spinning factories, polyester filament prices were stable. In this segment, cash offer of POY75D/72F stood at 17,600 Yuan / ton with higher trade volume, compared to the weekend.

In different varieties, FDY recorded significant transactions. Polyester staple fiber and viscose staple fiber prices registered negative growth rate.

In cotton yarn segment, all varieties declined further with very low trade volume. Cotton yarn 32s, mainly used in jet nylon series production, was in better demand as always but other specifications could not attract buyers in a big way.

Prices of blended products and polyester/ cotton products eroded further while viscose yarn products nosedived with very few deals. Pure polyester yarn strengthened its position but the trade volume was disappointing. Rayon yarn prices decreased further.

Considering the factors, man-made fibres yarn market is expected continue its downward trend in near future.
