3. Downstream industry chain
Summer is the traditional textile off-season. Although the textile market has begun to enter the traditional off-season, the overall sales are relatively smooth, and the yarn mills have not been heavily stockpiled. The rise of Zheng Cotton and cotton yarn futures and the low inventory of yarn mills supported the continued stability of yarn prices, and textile companies maintained a relatively high operating rate. There are few new orders in the cotton yarn market. Due to the tight overseas freight, the transaction price of some imported yarns has risen. The downstream grey fabric market actually has fewer transactions, mainly in small batches or re-orders. As cotton prices are rising, the willingness of downstream replenishment is not high, and textile mills maintain the position of just-needed purchasing. It is expected that the market will be stable in the short term.
