This is a lively summer, very hot and noisy! Under the high pressure of environmental protection, various news of production restrictions, production suspensions, and price increases are pouring in from everywhere. It can be said that one wave has not subsided, and another wave has arisen! Today, the editor’s circle of friends was flooded with another message:
Reminder: Due to environmental factors, all three monomer manufacturers across the country have been ordered to stop production. The cation equipment of several major manufacturers is facing the possibility of reducing production. Where will the price of cation products go…
It is understood that trimonomer is indispensable as an additive in the cation production process. Under this round of environmental protection rectification, three-monomer polyester manufacturers are also among those that have stopped production, which may set off another gust of wind in the cationic market. “At present, we only know that the three monomer manufacturers will stop production, but there is a time buffer for the suspension of production. In addition, the cationic ones are still in stock, so the silk price has not risen yet, but the market outlook may be uncertain.” A mainstream chemical fiber in Wujiang The sales manager of a large factory said, “However, the production and sales of cationic FDY are starting to improve!”
A wave of market conditions has begun in April, and the cationic fabric market is still popular!
Cationic fabric, as the name suggests, is composed of cationic silk and other yarns. The most distinctive feature of this fabric is that the fabric has a two-color effect, that is, it has two colors after dyeing. Cationic fabrics emerged from the market more than ten years ago, but they have ushered in another “spring” since April this year!
In the first half of the year, cationic snow pear spinning, polyester cationic, cationic imitation linen and other varieties have been selling well in the market, and there are queues in the market to get the goods. “Recently, all the machines are weaving cationic products, the raw materials are queued up to buy, and the customers are also queued up to get the goods.” said the boss of a weaving company in Shengze. Entering August, the entire market gradually enters the off-season. However, due to the powerful functional characteristics of cationic fabrics, which can be used throughout the year, the market demand is still relatively prominent. For example, cationic polyurethane jersey fabrics are very powerful in terms of environmental protection and can It is used as an environmentally friendly polyester fabric; cationic fabric has very good water absorption and its dyeing vat difference is relatively small, so it is particularly suitable for sports-type clothes, and is mainly made into sweatshirts, sweatpants, yoga clothes, etc. , if the cationic fabric is thicker and its brushing effect is good, it can be used as thermal clothing, thermal pants, etc.
Under the heavy pressure of environmental protection regulations in various places, old products are “surviving from desperate situations”?
At present, three rounds of national environmental protection inspections have been carried out across the country, and the fourth round of central environmental protection inspection teams has already been stationed in various provinces and cities, and the limelight continues. At the same time, environmental protection inspections at the provincial, municipal, county and multi-level levels are in full swing. Since 2016 and 2017, under the background of overcapacity reduction and supply-side reform, a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises, including the textile printing and dyeing industry, have become the targets of overcapacity reduction. Especially when the smog is overwhelming, small and medium-sized enterprises have been cut across the board. This also overturned everyone’s previous understanding of environmental protection inspections and overcapacity reduction. The real-life shutdown and rectification made everyone suddenly wake up. The impact of environmental protection on the manufacturing industry has already reached this level.
This year, the elimination and rectification work of water-jet looms in Jiangsu and Zhejiang has covered all regions. Shengze, Fenhu, Qidu, Pingwang, and Taoyuan have carried out special centralized rectification of all water-jet loom enterprises in the town, so as to “shut down one batch, rectify a group, and improve a group.” Driven by the introduction of environmental protection policies, the supply side of the market has been greatly affected. Many traders will stock up in advance. As a “safe variety” of home textiles and clothing fabrics, cationic fabrics are naturally also on their purchasing lists. Market demand Keep zooming in.
Demand determines everything! Treat environmental protection rationally
Generally speaking, in the process of improving the ecological environment and realizing the transformation from the traditional extensive growth mode to the emerging green development mode, some fields and some industries will experience the pain of transformation. But we should look at the relationship between the system and the part, the long term and the short term rationally. Environmental protection and production restrictions are bound to have a certain impact on the market, but how the market will develop next depends on demand!
At present, the fabric market is in the adjustment stage of returning to the normal channel. As the downstream expectations for the “Golden Nine and Silver Ten” increase, traders and garment factories will increase their purchase of fabrics. In addition, gray fabric inventory is at a low level in recent years, which will support prices. Played a certain role. With the deepening of environmental protection rectification, backward production capacity in textile printing and dyeing enterprises will be eliminated, and the market mechanism of low-price competition may disappear. In the long run, companies are increasinglyWith the trend of formalization, industry prosperity will gradually increase, and the balance of market supply and demand will always return to balance.
