Fibres Report November 2015 released
- Stabilised PX prices are helping to slow polyester fibre price falls, which are now confined to lower-end markets. But high stocks and weakening Asian demand will prevent any margin recovery. The euro decline is helping Europe to stabilise polyester fibre prices. US investment in polyester staple is moving ahead strongly on growing regional demand.
- Despite firm benzene prices, the downstream nylon chain remains weak with softening caprolactam, heavy overcapacity and high stocks. European demand is soft in apparel but better in carpets and industrials; US nylon demand is steady but unexciting.
- Viscose fibre prices have peaked out as downstream customers reject further increases. Acrylic fibre is regaining competitiveness as prices fall and undercut viscose. New acrylic blend options improve volume prospects. Polypropylene is falling in Asia but good demand in the US and Europe is slowing price reductions.
