Cost surface support collapsed, demand was flat, and nylon raw material prices plummeted. The price of cyclohexanone dropped by 1200 yuan / ton in March, and the actual price quoted in the market was between 5600-6100 yuan / ton. Caprolactam fell by about 1300 yuan / ton, and PA6 fell by about 2200 yuan / ton. The consumption of inventory is mainly in the downstream, and the willingness to purchase is not strong. PA6 inventory is a problem, with a larger decline.
In March, some of the nylon enterprises were still in the state of order production in the past few years because of their raw materials. The factory started to operate at a low level, and the purchasing intention was not strong enough. In mid March, most manufacturers lowered their quotations one by one, and some enterprises in recent weeks stayed at about 500 yuan per ton. From the price chart of cyclohexanone and nylon POY, it can be seen that crude oil prices are low or difficult to change. Cyclohexanone has a cliff fall in mid and late 3, while the price trend of nylon POY is relatively smooth.
Crude oil is at a low level, nylon orders are weak, with the consumption of inventory and cost reduction, pricing is gradually being explored. Business analysts believe that the cost is insufficient and orders are not optimistic. Nylon is expected to continue to decline.
