Falling crude oil sets nylon chain on a freefall
Summary: 
The nylon value chain has lost more than half its values in Asian markets by end 2015 end ever since they were at their yearly peak in May-June. The plunge was triggered by the rapidly falling crude oil prices where in benzene, a refinery product – is closely linked. Caprolactum, a nylon fibre

The nylon value chain has lost more than half its values in Asian markets by end 2015 end ever since they were at their yearly peak in May-June. The plunge was triggered by the rapidly falling crude oil prices where in benzene, a refinery product – is closely linked. Caprolactum, a nylon fibre intermediate, is derived from benzene via cyclohexane. Nylon chip, nylon fibre and nylon filament yarn are derived from caprolactum. Thus, the final product costing depends on the movement in crude oil and thereby, benzene markets.

Benzene strengthens support to downstream nylon chain

News Tags: Benzene price in asia, Benzene price in Europe, Benzene price in USA, caprolactum price in Asia, caprolactum price in Europe, caprolactum price in USA, nylon fibre price, nylon filament price, nylon textile yarn prices, polyamide chip price

Mumbai
Summary: 
Thus, the spurt in benzene had a quick percolating effect of the nylon chain as prices all along were seen rising in March. Expectation of a further surge in benzene values will only add to the escalation and buyers will seek to replenish as much as possible to balance cost and pricing of their end products.

Benzene prices surged 13-16% in March across regions while US numbers hit a four-month high in the first week of the month. In Asia, a strong demand for May cargoes supported prices to go up while in European bullish sentiments caused prices to jump. In US, derivative styrene’s demand for benzene held firm as participants eyed export opportunities to Europe, which ultimately led to reductions in benzene supply locally. In Latin America, benzene prices rose week on week tracking key global markets higher.

Nylon yarn makers enjoying increased margins despite soft pricing
Summary: 
Increasing supplies of crude oil from North American shale formations continued to weigh heavily on prices this year, creating a glut in world markets and decreasing demand for oil from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. OPEC forecast that its market share would be 5 percent lower by 2018 as shale supplies continued to increase faster than demand. However, OPEC Secretary-General Abdullah al-Badri believes that the 12-member cartel, which pumps a third of the world's oil, prices would recover next year.

Off-season and costlier raw material squeezes nylon making
Summary: 
Nylon filament makers in Asia have been facing dual challenges in recent times. On one hand raw material cost has been galloping while on the other hand, demand is shrinking at an equal speed. This, nylon makers says, is squeezing their margins and thus they have to resort to production control, as a strategy to support even the current price levels.
