SunSirs analysts believe that the current spandex market is operating steadily, manufacturers are maintaining normal operations, plus the previous inventory backlog, the overall market supply is ample. Despite active shipments, the demand for downstream end customers has not followed up. Most of them are still dominated by small orders, and just need to get the goods. The wait-and-see atmosphere is still strong. With the gradual thickening of the textile off-season atmosphere, the supporting effect of the cost end is not strong, and it is expected that the spandex market will run smoothly in the short term.
