Towards the end of the year, the terminal market gradually started the closing work, the demand follow-up was a little cautious, mainly to recover the payment for goods, although there were some shipments, but the overall situation was relatively weak. In addition, the trend of logistics and transportation gradually leaves, the order follow-up situation has decreased. At present, the downstream order follow-up in Fujian Province is not much, and the start-up level of lace market is around 30%, and the start-up level of warp knitting market is about 60%; the downstream market demand follow-up in Guangdong Province is cautious, the start-up level of circular machine is between 30-40%, and the start-up level of warp knitting is between 60-70%. In Zhangjiagang area, Jiangsu Province, the downstream market starts generally, and the cotton bale market starts at 60%. The downstream market of Zhuji District in Yiwu, Zhejiang Province started fairly well, and the starting level of yarn wrapping market remained at 70-80%.

SunSirs analysts believe that spandex supply is just goood, manufacturers actively shipping. This year's Spring Festival holiday is earlier than previous years. The terminal market is gradually entering the end of the year stage. In the early stage, there is a little stock, but the quantity is relatively small, so it is prudent to purchase. At the same time, the overall situation of the textile industry this year is not good, and the enterprise's capital chain is very tight. Especially near the end of the year, with the increase of holiday manufacturers, it is expected that spandex market will be difficult to boost.
