Summary: 
Filatex plans to increase its production capacity by nearly 90,000 tonnes to 237,000 tonnes for FY 2018-19. A similar capacity expansion was planned by other polyester manufacturers as well. Polyester prices have moved in a narrow range over the last few months following crude oil prices. Data compiled by the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) showed $1.6 billion worth of man-made filaments and man-made staple fibre products imported into India during the financial year 2017-18. Besides fabrics, import of manmade fibres (MMF) and MMF yarns have also sweeped since June 2017 when the goods and services tax (GST) was implemented. Import of polyester staple fibre (PSF) and viscose staple fibre (VSF) had increased by 5 per cent and 20 per cent respectively during the financial year 2017-18 including a similar increase in imports of other products in the polyester value chain.
