Affected by the epidemic, the governments introduced policies and required companies to postpone production, and most cotton yarn mills delayed their restart.
Hubei: as the hardest-hit area, Hubei government required the companies to resume production until Feb 13. Most cotton yarn mills reported they may restart gradually from Feb 14-15, and some mills were uncertain when to run. But due to the issues of labor and logistics, the operation is expected to recover very slowly, and the delivery of cotton yarn will also be hard amid traffic control.
Xinjiang: the epidemic situation was a little milder in Xinjiang and the government did not announce mandatory shutdown. The Spring Festival atmosphere was light in Xinjiang, especially in South Xinjiang, so some spinners did not take holiday, and they were still in normal production. Most spinners took 5-10 days holiday, and some of them have restarted as planned and some postponed production to Feb 9. The cotton yarn mills in Xinjiang were mostly invested by inland companies, but the leaders of the companies cannot return to Xinjiang due to the control on epidemic, so the sales and production were affected. On the other hand, the logistics has not recovered, and the cotton yarn mills cannot deliver goods.
Other regions: Except the cotton yarn mills in Hubei and Xinjiang, those in other regions were required to resume production after Feb 9. Some cotton yarn mills are initially expected to restart on Feb 10, and some are still uncertain. The operating rate is predicted to recover slowly after the restart.
At present, some cotton yarn mills have started to take orders, but the restart time is mostly postponed. It is still uncertain that whether workers can return to work completely and when the delivery can restore. The impacts on production and operation may sustain long.
