Market Outlook
For cost, the space to adjust ACN price is likely to be not large, and the acrylic fiber cash flow may remain poor. In terms of supply, operating rate is expected to be decrease, and the impact of changes in the overall supply is estimated to be restricted. For demand, with the Spring Festival approaching, the holiday plan of yarn plants may be basically confirmed. At present, there are still small plants accept orders and purchase cargoes. Generally, the cost pressure may remain great, and the demand may gradually weaken with the Spring Festival approaching. The pressure from upstream and downstream may become the condition to keep acrylic fiber price smooth. Acrylic fiber price is anticipated to be consistently steady.
