Analysis: On the cost side, crude oil has fluctuated slightly in recent days, and PTA futures have dropped more than 3% today due to the restart of the device in recent days. However, ethylene glycol futures have fluctuated and increased due to higher coal prices in the past week. On the demand side, polyester yarn factories just need to purchase mainly, while sales of polyester staple fiber are weak. On the supply side, a polyester staple fiber plant in Zhejiang was shut down for maintenance for about one month, involving a production capacity of 100,000 tons/year.
Forecast: Looking at the market outlook, short-term polyester staple fiber prices may fluctuate weakly in the context of weak demand and continued weakness in crude oil and PTA prices.
