Fibres Report August 2015 released
- Polyester fibres in Asia are suffering weak demand, falling prices and a growing rate of insolvencies. There are no signs yet of the expected seasonal upturn. Falling raw materials suggest the fibres market has not yet bottomed out. Only in the US is there any market momentum.
- Chinese nylon fibres show low utilisation rates and are engaged in an aggressive search for cash, with bad debts now a chronic sales impediment. US and European business is heavily reduced during the major holiday season. In no region is there any expectation of a strong recovery in Q4.
- Viscose staple continues to increase prices on higher raw material costs and good demand. But it has moved above cotton prices and is becoming more vulnerable. Acrylic also shows robust demand and steady prices. PP prices are weakening, with reality returning in Europe.
