As we enter April, the much-anticipated “Silver Fourth” is here. However, nowadays, textile workers are more likely to look sad. Although the orders are hot, they have to wait for the dyeing factory to ship the goods, which can take more than 20 days. Coupled with strict environmental protection inspections and the reduction of water-jet looms, it is “hard to find a piece of cloth” and “it is difficult for a clever woman to make a meal without rice.” How difficult is it!
“It’s hard to find a piece of cloth”
The “Golden Three” that just passed, polyester taffeta It can be said that it became a big hit and became a hot commodity that everyone grabbed. The number of water-jet looms continues to decrease and move overseas, resulting in reduced production capacity, tight supply, and no stock. Only then will there be a situation of “hard to find”.
It is reported that enterprises in Jiashan area that do not have the conditions for water jet loom renovation and improvement must complete the shutdown and elimination before June 30, 2018! This makes textile people even more worried. Will conventional fabrics such as polyester taffeta continue to be popular this year? How long will the situation of “hard to find cloth” continue?
The dyeing factory “refuses” to accept the order
“I used to worry about not getting any orders, but now I’m scared when I see the orders. There are queues at the dyeing factory. Although there are many orders, there is no way to deliver the goods on the agreed date. Now the orders have been I don’t dare to take any more orders until May or June.” Manager Zhang of a textile company specializing in polyester taffeta told the editor.
Under the current situation, it is certain that the dyeing fee will increase, but I did not expect it. It is also necessary to restrict the entry of gray fabrics into the factory. The textile boss said: “We can bear the increase in dyeing fees, but we must be able to ship the goods, otherwise the customers will not be able to account for it.” Nowadays, it is difficult to buy goods quickly if you have money. Seeing this situation, the editor can’t help but sigh: It’s not easy to do business~
Where is the way forward
In the editor’s opinion, although the shortage is serious, the overall market situation is still improving ~ orders are coming one after another. Capacity reduction is a major trend, and we can only choose to face it. It is the spring of “rag cloth” – polyester taffeta, but don’t blindly follow the trend and just do whatever products are popular. You still need to have your own independent analysis and not be led by the market. What all textile bosses can do now is to adapt to the ever-changing market and transform to standardized production, product innovation, and diversified operations. What you want to pursue is not price, but value! </p
