Nylon filament yarn prices were hiked to cover losses amid firmer caprolactum and nylon chip costs. Yarn makers cut operating rates while buyers made smaller replenishment, contributing to better fundamentals. Run rate at nylon yarn makers was at 65% amid cautious mentality.
Facing negative margins, some suppliers carried out production cutbacks amid slack season. During the G20 Summit, heavy production cuts will be imposed on Xiaoshan?based plants and mills.
Overall, nylon yarn markets will edge up on high cost pressure in coming weeks as rigid demand and increased replenishment will lend support to nylon yarn market in August? September.
