Updated to Q1 2020
Supply of nylon 6 in Q1 2020 is expected to remain high, even as some facilities are expected to reduce operating rates further or close temporarily in view of the Lunar New Year celebrations beginning from 25 January. An expected uptick in trade activity after the holidays should help reduce inventory levels, as participants prepare for the typical peak season in spring.
Demand for nylon 6 in early Q1 2020 is not expected to see much of an uptick as interest in stockpiling before the Lunar New Year holidays is low. However, demand should improve post-Lunar New Year, as nylon polymerisation facilities begin preparing for the traditional peak season in spring.
