The factory price has increased and the price has been increased.
In terms of demand: Downstream, the load of the weaving and spinning industries has basically increased slightly, but has remained stable, with an overall load position of around 65%. The actual transaction level is still acceptable, but the buyer's acceptance of the increased price has decreased, and the circulation speed of some sources of goods has been affected.
