At the same time, the oil price stabilized and rebounded, and the support at the support end increased, leading to the rise of PTA market.

Due to the improvement of downstream fabrics in autumn and winter, early preparation and better expectation in the second half of the year, in fact, the weaving end has already begun to rebound, and the startup rate is rising sharply. At present, the comprehensive startup rate of looms in Jiangsu and Zhejiang is 79.63%, higher than the level in the same period last year, and the weaving Market is getting warmer locally. Among them, autumn orders in Shengze area are issued sporadically. Due to the rise in the price of raw materials, some weaving factories produce in advance. Foreign trade orders can be issued in August, and subsequent foreign trade orders may continue to be issued. The delivery of low-cost grey cloth in Changxing weaving Market is fast. A small number of domestic orders are issued in autumn, and foreign trade orders are issued one after another. Some factories say that the orders are 2-3 weeks, and the orders are more, up to about 4 weeks.

Business analysts believe that near the end of the month and with the launch of autumn orders in the textile market, the atmosphere for raw material procurement has improved, but they are cautious in chasing the rise. PTA raw material will continue to warm in the short term under the tightening expectation. It is still necessary to close the dynamics of oil injection Market and guard against the risk of price decline after typhoon weather speculation. It is expected that in the short term, supported by favorable costs, the price of polyester filament will remain the main player, but the increase will be narrowed.
