The peak season is not prosperous, and nylon encounters a "cold spell in late spring"

March is the traditional peak season in the textile market, but this year this beautiful situation seems to have truly become a "legend". Now that March has passed, the prices of nylon products in the market are falling day by day, causing companies to turn their "expectations" of the March legend into "disappointments". The nylon raw material caprolactam has been declining since March, with the internal quotation dropping from 23500 yuan to 22600 yuan, a decrease of 3.83%; Under the dual pressure of upstream raw materials and downstream procurement, nylon chips have also started to decline. The conventional nylon spinning chips have now dropped to 24300 yuan/ton, and high-speed spinning has also dropped to 24700 yuan/ton.

What factors make the nylon market "sluggish during peak seasons"? The author combines relevant factors to analyze as follows:

1、 Inventory increases, caprolactam continues to decline

From the trend of the upstream raw material market, the caprolactam market has been in a weak downward trend recently. At the beginning of the month, due to the support of crude oil, the trend of caprolactam tended to stabilize, and the market quotation center remained at the level of 23300 yuan/ton. However, the good times did not last long. With the overall market weakening, sales could not be boosted, and the inventory pressure of manufacturers began to gradually increase. The caprolactam market could not hold and gradually began to decline, with most manufacturers experiencing price adjustment operations. Although the price adjustment action has brought about certain production and sales, the fixed outcome of low prices has been achieved, and caprolactam manufacturers can only continue to implement low price discounts and small order delivery methods.

2、 Sales are cold and nylon chips are unbearable

Affected by the upstream raw material caprolactam, the nylon chip market has also experienced a chain reaction and entered a downward trend. Due to the overall weak market situation in the textile market this year, downstream weaving enterprises have mostly placed small orders, so their procurement enthusiasm is not high. They mostly use on-demand procurement, which makes the sales of nylon chips in the market "at a loss". In order to drive sales, nylon chip manufacturers have had to lower prices to attract buyers' attention. However, buyers are still cautious in placing orders and operate according to their needs, considering inventory and production volume issues. Affected by this, nylon chip manufacturers can only repeatedly adjust their quotations in the hope of boosting the market procurement atmosphere, but it seems that "it is difficult to change against the trend, and the trading volume of nylon chip market has always been at a low level.

3、 Fabric sales are average, but the market atmosphere is sluggish

Finally, from the trend of the downstream fabric market, we can see that the sales of fabric products made of nylon silk in the market have been relatively flat recently. For example, the sales of 190T and 210T nylon silk woven fabrics with nylon silk are average in the market, and the market prices have also slightly decreased; In addition, although Taslon's conventional 184T and 228T fabrics currently have a certain sales volume, mainly used for leisure fashion demand, they are still mainly small orders. Although weaving manufacturers have made certain adjustments to their product structure, extending from plain weave to jacquard and jacquard, their products have also been expanded through deep processing, such as coating, sanding, composite, etc; However, overall, the transaction volume of the entire nylon silk interwoven fabric is not large, so downstream weaving enterprises are still cautious in controlling the procurement volume of nylon silk. The overall market situation is still not optimistic for enterprises, and the overall market atmosphere remains sluggish.

4、 Future prospects

From the current perspective, "insufficient procurement", "average trading volume", and "sluggish sales" are clich é d topics. The so-called "peak season" did not "thrive", but rather filled the entire nylon market with an awkward atmosphere of "cold spring". Recently, due to the decline in raw materials such as caprolactam and nylon chips, as well as the impact of various patterns such as low demand and unclear trading, nylon manufacturers are facing inventory pressure, and preferential policies are constantly increasing. Therefore, the author expects that the price of nylon in the future market will be weak and the downward trend will be obvious.

What are the benefits of nylon reflected in?

Polyamide, also known as nylon silk, is mainly used for synthetic fibers. Its most prominent advantage is that its wear resistance is higher than all other fibers, 10 times higher than cotton and 20 times higher than wool. Adding some polyamide fibers to blended fabrics can greatly improve their wear resistance; When stretched to 3-6%, the elastic recovery rate can reach 100%; Can withstand tens of thousands of twists and turns without breaking.

Don't believe it! Look!! The effect of using nylon silk fabric is really different~

Nylon can maintain the bending deformation formed during heating. Its long filaments can be made into elastic filaments, while its short filaments can be blended with cotton and acrylic fibers to improve their strength and elasticity. In addition to being used in underwear and decorations, it is also widely used in industrial fields such as cord threads, transmission belts, hoses, ropes, fishing nets, tires, parachutes, etc. Its wear resistance is 10 times that of cotton fiber, 10 times that of dry viscose fiber, and 140 times that of wet fiber, making it extremely durable.

It's worth taking a look at the physical and chemical properties of nylon twisted yarn!

Nylon is the trade name for polyamide fibers, also known as nylon. The focused state structure of nylon is closely related to the stretching and heat treatment during the spinning process. Nylon twisted yarn is mainly made of long fibers, and there are also a small amount of nylon short fibers. Nylon twisted yarn is suitable for knitting and weaving, covering all fields of textiles.

How does the nylon industry shoulder the burden of fashion

China is a major producer of nylon civilian fibers, and the future development space is still very broad. However, compared to its position as a major producer of nylon, China's nylon industry still urgently needs to enhance its strength in areas such as product application development, brand expansion, and cultural construction. The era of nylon industry expansion relying on scale and quantity has come to an end, and changes in labor and other related factors have led the industry into a new era that requires changes in development methods, structural adjustments, and transformation and upgrading. It needs to rely on technology, culture, brand, and innovation to drive the overall upgrading of the industrial chain value.

Chemical fiber industry: This year's "Golden Nine" has not risen as much as in previous years

In July and August of this year, polyester filament manufacturers generally gained a lot. Due to tight supply, FDY products have a high profit level per ton. DTY and POY products have relatively weak returns. DTY products benefit from the lag in price changes, and their profit level decreases slowly during the period of POY price decline. Although POY began to turn losses into profits in early July, it fell to the edge of profit and loss in mid to late September.
