Just after the Spring Festival, the entire textile market began to stage a drama of price increases. Bulk chemical fiber raw materials, led by polyester filament, had a “good start”. Faced with the rising market prices as soon as they opened, weaving factories and traders said that before they could recover from the New Year atmosphere, the screen was filled with the sound of price increases: polyester filament prices increased, nylon prices increased, spandex prices increased, Viscose staple fiber rises…
Countless increases, endless sadness!
The whole plate is red! It boils down to one word: rising!
Faced with the steady increase in raw materials, the cloth boss who had just started work could no longer hold back. Faced with inquiries for new orders, he also began to increase his quotation:
Sorry, the raw materials have increased, and we have to increase the price too!
Many companies in Fujian have also issued price adjustment notices: Due to the rising prices of raw materials, the company cannot withstand the pressure of rising raw materials. After research, our company has decided to adjust the sales prices of our products starting from the start of construction in 2017…
Regardless of whether they are making finished products or gray fabrics, many market participants said that this wave of price increases came earlier and more violently than in the past.
“Actually, the price increase was not our original intention. After all, my price increase may increase the risk of losing customers. However, raw materials are rising every day, and dyeing fees are also high. Our cost pressure is really too great,” said the boss of a company in Wujiang Mr. Chen said, “Take 228T nylon Taslan as an example. In May last year, our purchase price for gray fabric was 5.2 yuan. Now our purchase price is 6.1 yuan. This increase is nearly 1 yuan, but the quotation we give to customers But it’s impossible to increase that much, it’s only 50 cents at most, and you have to bear the rest of the cost increase yourself.”
Judging from the current market recovery situation, weaving factories and dyeing factories have started operations one after another this week. However, due to personnel factors, the operations and market conditions are generally recovering: Among them, inquiries and quotations from trading companies in Xiaoshao area have started one after another, and many manufacturers have begun Although the printing and dyeing companies have started operations due to the busy year-end orders, the orders have not yet fully exploded; the weaving manufacturers in Shengze area have started operations one after another, and most of the manufacturers have completed the orders before the year-end. Worker recruitment has become the focus of recent attention. Since the inventories of major manufacturers are still at low levels, so Many manufacturers have begun to raise their mood for gray fabrics, and it is expected that next week will gradually enter the busy period; dyeing factories and trading companies in Changzhou have started operations after the eighth day of the Lunar New Year, and quotations and purchases have gradually increased, but it has not affected the price of gray fabrics so far, but as time goes by As the market situation improves, manufacturers say they will not rule out price adjustments in the future.
Judging from traditional practices, the general textile market will improve after the fifteenth day of the first lunar month, starting operations and placing orders. And judging from the feedback from cloth bosses, the market in the first half of this year is expected to be better than the same period in previous years. Manufacturers generally have sales after the Spring Festival. Orders need to be executed, and the market as a whole is optimistic. However, the author has always believed that only a joint increase in upstream and downstream prices is the best sign of a recovery in the industry’s prosperity. At present, the upstream raw material market is rising “heartbreakingly”, the mid-end gray fabric market is still waiting to “rise”, and the finished product market is cautiously waiting and watching. It will take time for prices to be transmitted smoothly upstream and downstream in the market.
