The downstream domestic PA6 market rose this month. This month, the operating rate of domestic PA6 polymerization plant increased from below 65% to more than 70%, with stable output and abundant supply of goods. Downstream, the textile and spinning industries had a weak load, and the overall demand for PA6 chips by terminal enterprises was weak. The spot market competition was strong, and the actual orders were mostly contract transactions. The market of PA6 in January was mainly driven by raw materials.
The CPL analyst of SunSirs believes that at present, the CPL market has an upward trend due to the favorable cost support, the tight spot on the market, and the steady follow-up of upstream and downstream demand. It is expected that the market price of CPL will continue to rise in the short term. It is recommended to pay attention to the change of raw material price.
