3. Downstream industry chain
In the market, summer is the traditional textile off-season. Although the textile market has begun to enter the traditional off-season, overall sales are relatively smooth. The off-season characteristics are not obvious. The cotton yarn market is fading, but the yarn mills have not been significantly accumulated. The rise of Zheng cotton and cotton yarn futures and the low inventory of yarn mills have supported the continued stability of yarn prices. Textile companies have maintained a high operating rate, and some textile companies' orders have been scheduled to July. Poor textile export data in May will cause downstream inventories to accumulate, which is not conducive to cotton prices. The rise in cotton prices has made cotton enterprises active in sales, and textile enterprises have declined in purchasing enthusiasm. They are cautious and focus on small-volume purchases. It is expected that they will fluctuate in the short term in the future.
