Textile enterprises are cautious about the decline in raw material prices

recently, due to the weakness of China's purchasing managers' index (PMI), the unemployment rate in the euro zone hit a record high, and the weaker than expected data of the U.S. manufacturing industry, many commodity prices fell, including international gold and crude oil futures. However, among these bulk commodities, cotton and chemical fiber raw materials, which have a greater impact on the textile industry in Quanzhou, although the overall downturn, did not make textile enterprises happy, but became more cautious in procurement in addition to theft

compared with crazy cotton with a price of more than 30000 yuan per ton in the previous two years, the recent cotton price has fallen sharply. According to the analysis of professional institutions, the current domestic cotton price shows a weak pattern, and the monthly contract price closes at about 19400 yuan/ton. Taking the 17th as an example, the domestic cotton price fell slightly, and the quotation of imported cotton in China's main port also fell slightly, with most varieties falling by 0.25 cents, and c/a cotton in India, Brazil and the United States falling by 0.5 cents

cotton prices are weak, but textile enterprises are difficult to be optimistic. At present, the price difference of cotton at home and abroad is still large, and the serious upside down of cotton price has become a major problem faced by textile enterprises. Chencangsong, Secretary General of Fujian textile and clothing export base chamber of Commerce, calculated that it was only 1/4 of the company's previous products: Generally speaking, cotton raw materials accounted for more than 70% of the cost of cotton textiles. To produce a ton of cotton yarn, at least 1.1 ton of cotton is required, and the raw material cost is about 21000 yuan, while the price of a ton of cotton yarn is 26000 yuan, including other costs such as labor, energy, transportation and finance of 7000 yuan, which means that cotton textile enterprises will lose 2000 yuan per ton of cotton yarn

as a bulk commodity, the rise and fall of international cotton prices actually have an impact on domestic enterprises, which can meet the use requirements of the industry. This is mainly subject to the quota system, the means of domestic policy regulation. Quanzhou textile enterprises mainly purchase raw materials from reserve cotton. The head of a textile enterprise in Quanzhou Development Zone said that foreign enterprises who place orders usually set prices based on international cotton prices, but the cotton yarn they produce is produced with higher cost domestic cotton, and the profits are squeezed to a certain extent

the internal and external upside down of cotton prices has made some textile enterprises focus on chemical fibers extracted from petroleum and petrochemical products as substitutes. Zhangqingshan, general manager of Shishi No. 1 clothing enterprise, said that there are few pure cotton products on the market now. Even Fujian style casual clothes with high cotton content generally contain about 20% chemical fiber. Most clothing fabrics are mainly synthetic fabrics, including nylon, polyester and other synthetic fabrics, which are completely extracted from petroleum and petrochemical products

it is understood that since April this year, the economic growth of major economies in the world has slowed significantly, and the sharp deterioration of market risk appetite has dragged down international oil prices. Affected by this, the price of chemical fiber in recent times is also the same as that of similar instruments seen at present, which are manual clamping of samples, and pneumatic clamping is rapidly weak

however, this may not be good news for enterprises. Everyone always thinks that the decline in the price of raw materials is good for enterprises. As everyone knows, it is more dangerous. Some insiders said frankly that if the enterprise has too much inventory when the price of raw materials has just fallen, if the price continues to fall in the future, the enterprise will not benefit from it. Zhangjiayi, general manager of Jinjiang Dafa technology group, analyzed that if the enterprise received large and long orders, but did not control the use of raw materials, it would be better not to accept them. Because if high priced raw material inventory is used, and the price of raw materials in the current market has fallen, the terminal price cannot be raised, and the profit will be reduced

from the downstream, the textile and clothing export situation began to improve in the first quarter of this year, but traditional markets such as Europe and the United States still did not get out of the trough of market demand, and the export situation throughout the year is still difficult to be optimistic. According to Chen Cangsong's analysis, from the price trend of upstream textile raw materials, domestic cotton is mainly reserved, and the price fluctuation will not be too large as a whole, while chemical fiber and other factors, affected by international crude oil and other factors, show a large fluctuation trend, and it is difficult to directly judge whether it is up or down. Therefore, enterprises should adopt the principle of appropriate amount when purchasing raw materials, especially in the off-season

blindly purchase on bargain hunting. Under the dual pressure of inventory indigestion and new orders not increasing, if the capital flow of the enterprise is not smooth, it will be more passive. Chen Cangsong said

in addition, some insiders also reminded enterprises that they should always pay attention to the price of raw materials in the market, and can change the production mode to set production by sales, so as to speed up the production efficiency of production and delivery. At the same time, realize the lean production management, control the use and management of raw materials, reduce the loss of raw materials, and save production costs as much as possible
