Polyamide or nylon prices surge on modest demand

Nylon or polyamide chip (nylon-6) prices moved up in the second week of February in line with higher CPL cost. In China, offers for nylon chip prices were raised driven by surging raw materials cost during the week. Most of the downstream mills had previously stocked up materials before holidays. However, inventory level is low post-holiday and it is likely that nylon chip producers may increase their run rates to fill the inventory levels.

Polyester intermediates and feedstock markets stable-to-up

In China, semi-dull polyester chip (or PET) offers were mostly stable in the second week of February as downstream buyers were slowly resuming operations in the week. Markets were also cautious due to increasing supply recently. Further, many PET chip producers restarted their plants already which lead to more supply in the market. On the contrary, downstream mills were taking time to resume.

Polyester fibre and yarn prices remain firm after the Spring Festival

Polyester staple fibre (PSF) prices were range-bound in the Asian markets of China, India and Pakistan after the Lunar New Year holidays. PSF offers in China were kept firm in the second week of February underpinned by stable polyester chip markets. Market sentiment was largely quiet after the holiday week while PSF producers were slowly restarting their units later in the week. Market supply is expected to increase due to plant restarts and new start-ups. Overall, PSF offers are expected to soften in coming weeks due to increased supply.

Summary: 
This article is drawn from the Circular Weekly newsletter from GreenBiz, running Fridays. The apparel industry is quickly becoming a leader in circularity, from scaling innovative business models such as recommerce and clothing rental to developing textile recycling programs to incentivizing product take-back. Given the potential for brand-boosting (and undeniably compelling marketing narratives), it’s no surprise that many companies are beginning their foray into circularity with consumer-facing programs. This approach can tell a strong story about closing the loop and curbing environmental impact, and engages consumers in the process.
