Updated to Q1 2015
Prices in the polyester fibre market decreased in early January and then rebounded from mid-January. Prices weakened again in March. Prices of POY150D/48F are taken as an example.
Prices of POY150D/48F decreased from CNY7,750-7,850/tonne in early January to CNY7,000-7,100/tonne in mid-January because of a lack of support from feedstock prices. As international crude oil prices rebounded, prices of POY150D/48F rebounded to CNY7,500-7,550/tonne in early March, then decreased to CNY7,200-7,300/tonne at the end of the month.
The price rebounded in early January, supported by most downstream producers buying on a hand-to-mouth basis before China’s Lunar New Year holiday. However, downstream demand in the market for China polyester sellers was low from mid-February to end-March. As a result, prices decreased slightly.
Demand from the downstream textile industry is likely to be better in spring and prices in the polyester fibre market should increase if no negative news is observed in the crude oil market.
