Asian nylon yarn market remains range bound

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-10-18 05:38:59 –

In China, FDY70D/24F SD prices rolled over in the first week of October while FDY40D were stable on the week. DTY 70D/24F prices remained unchanged while 30D/10F fell US cents 2 a kg on the week. Monofilament 30D prices rolled over while nylon staple fiber 1.5D prices were range bound on the week.

Nylon filament yarn markets were well support by high cost on existing negative margins. Otherwise, downstream buyers followed up cautiously with tolerable sentiment after the holidays in key markets in North east Asia. However, as markets resumed after holidays nylon yarn prices showed signs of weakness on the back of slightly lower nylon chips.

Downstream converters kept running at lower rates while warp-knitting, weaving and AJ covering sectors operated at 70% of full capacity. Meanwhile, circular-knitting mills and lacing mills ran at 50%. Overall, nylon yarn prices are possible to move sideways in October on the back of tolerable supply/demand fundamentals.
