In the first half of this year, the overall performance of the chemical fiber industry was good. The specific performance was as follows: the average operating rate of the industry increased year-on-year, and the output growth rate accelerated; profits increased significantly year-on-year, especially in the second quarter; fixed asset investment increased steadily. Among the textile sub-sectors, the total profit of the chemical fiber industry increased significantly by 50.59% year-on-year to 14.07 billion yuan, becoming the sub-industry with the fast profit growth rate. However, the industry’s losses still reached 23.36%, and the company’s profitability was extremely polarized (see figure 1).
According to statistics from the National Bureau of Statistics, the output of chemical fiber from January to June was 23.074 million tons, an increase of 11.63% year-on-year, and the growth rate was 4.11 percentage points higher than the same period last year. Among them, polyester production increased by 12.72% year-on-year, and the growth rate increased by 4.99 percentage points; nylon production increased by 18.37% year-on-year, and the growth rate increased by 5.87 percentage points (see Table 1). The increase in the growth rate of chemical fiber production is due to the low base in the same period last year on the one hand, and the release of new production capacity in 2014 is reflected in this year’s output; on the other hand, the performance of the chemical fiber industry in the first half of this year is indeed better than that of the same period last year. , The operating rate has increased.
