In September, due to the maintenance plan of Cyclohexanone Plant in mid-term of this month, the market spot supply is tight. Some factories suspend the sale, and the external quotation is firm. Saudi Arabia's largest crude oil facility was attacked by UAV on the 14th, resulting in the production capacity suspension of more than 5 million barrels per day, and Saudi oil output and exports were deeply affected. Domestic crude oil futures once limited, closing prices soared. The incident strengthened the confidence in the short-term rise of the prices of chemical raw materials. Compared with the beginning of September, Cyclohexanone increases 292RMB/t, Caprolactam increases 284RMB/t and PA6 increases 583RMB/t.

The exports of textiles and garments are weaker than the previous years. According to the latest statistics of the General Administration of Customs, in August 2019, China's exports of textiles and garments amounted to $25.714 billion, 6.54% lower than last month and 4.95% lower year on year. Textile exports (including textile yarns, fabrics and products) amounted to $10.147 billion, 2.61% lower compared with the same period last year, while garment exports (including garments and accessories) amounted to $15.698 billion, a decrease of 6.38% compared with the same period last year.

From the price trend chart of Polyamide POY and upstream raw materials, the prices of Cyclohexanone keep rising, while the prices of PA6 fall and then rise, but Polyamide FDY appears to be weak and to have a decrease. Manufacturers said that the downstream performance is low, the upstream price pressure is rising, the prices up or not is still being weighed.

SunSirs analysts believe that the price of crude oil has risen sharply, the price of raw materials in the upstream of Polyamide has risen. The upstream market is not good, and the manufactures have not raised the prices yet. It is expected that the Polyamide FDY prices will rise due to cost pressures.
