From the demand side, the first week of December was coming to an end. The overall market transaction in the lower reaches has cooled down, and the comprehensive starting rate of Jiangsu and Zhejiang looms has declined, currently around 70%. In autumn and winter, the transaction of clothing fabric is coming to an end. The terminal factory is currently in the process of making foreign Christmas orders. The orders are basically coming to an end, and the orders will be gradually reduced from December. In Xiaoshao area, Zhejiang Province, the downstream terminal market starts generally, the round machine market starts at a level of 40-50%, and the yarn wrapping market starts at a level of 50-60%; in Wujiang area, the downstream market starts at a relatively stable level, and the yarn wrapping starts at a level of 60-70%; in Fujian area, the downstream order follow-up is not much, the lace market starts at a level of 30%, and the warp knitting market starts at a level of about 60%; in Guangdong Province, the downstream market starts at a level of 40-50% The market demand follows up cautiously, the starting level of circular machine is 30-40%, and the starting level of warp knitting is 60-70%.

SunSirs analysts believe that the current spring and summer clothing fabric part of next spring and summer orders issued, but the order volume is not large, product delivery speed is average. In autumn and winter, the clothing fabric goes to the end, but in early winter, the fabric doesn't go smoothly. With the double twelfth and Christmas approaching, late sales may be more smooth. Although the trend of upstream raw material market has a strong price intention, but the support is insufficient. Although spandex manufacturers are actively shipping, the start-up level of various fields of the terminal may have a downward trend. The purchase intention is not high, the shipping resistance remains, and the demand end will gradually weaken. It is expected that the spandex market will continue to be bullish in the short term, and the possibility of low volatility consolidation is greater.
