Yarn Price Comparison: China vs India and Pakistan, in local currency and US$ terms

Yarn Price Comparison: China vs India and Pakistan New Weekly Report

Spun polyester prices are now climbing in China, in line with the current recovery of polyester staple fiber prices whereas 100% polyester prices have already surged 10% in the last three months in Pakistan. By contrast, spun viscose prices have begun dropping in China, after VSF prices have eventually declined. 100% viscose had previously surged in Pakistan. Cotton yarn prices could stay everywhere at their currently high levels. Our new yarn comparison report offers a comprehensive view of 30s or 32s carded yarns in China, India and Pakistan, in local currency and US$ terms on a weekly basis over the last 12 months. 100% cotton, 100% polyester and 100% viscose are being covered with all data available for download.

Spun yarn prices have moved into different directions in the last weeks in China, India and Pakistan, depending on countries, fiber types and currency units.

On the cotton yarn market, Chinese prices have remained frozen, as already observed for the last two years, in line with a long-term stability of cotton fiber prices being under the control of Chinese officials.

From their level three months ago, 30s cotton carded yarns have more increased in India than in Pakistan, although other counts may have behaved differently.

The 30s cotton carded has only risen 2% in Indian rupee terms, however, whereas the same 30s carded had dropped 1.7% in Pakistan due to the recent fall of carded cotton yarn prices on the domestic market.

The high level of cotton prices is everywhere limiting any chance to see cotton yarn prices dropping in the coming weeks.

Cotton yarn prices are staying at a higher level in China, especially in US$ terms, due to the higher cotton prices in the country.

On the spun polyester market, the rebound of polyester staple fiber prices in China is now pushing up benchmark 32s to higher levels.

Prices have risen 1.5% in a single week, and are up 15.9% from a year earlier, in local currency terms.

30s polyester has recently slightly dropped in India, rising in Pakistan, in local currency terms.

This is due to the surge of polyester prices on the Pakistani market, still in LCU terms, whereas prices have been more stable in US$ terms, after the sharp fall of the domestic currency.

On the viscose market, benchmark 30s carded is now declining in China, over a fall of staple fiber prices after they have been stuck at the same level for many weeks.

In Pakistan by contrast, 30s prices have risen 1.4% in the past four weeks, in local currency terms, however falling 2% in dollar terms.
