In end-April, the common status of several products was that weavers have successively controlled production and prices lost value rapidly.

|Viscose Filament Yarn||Operating rate (%)||Inventory (days)|
VFY: It is currently known that two units of Jilin Chemical Fiber will be shut for maintenance in May, and the duration is about two months, without excluding other plants' maintenance, so the O/R will be lower or reduce to 86%-88%. In the case of production cuts, the tempo of rising inventory will slow down, and it is expected that the inventory will increase by about one week in May.
|Rayon yarn||Operating rate (%)||Inventory (days)|
Rayon yarn: the number of days for May Day holidays was increased and it was not ruled out that most of mills may have 7-15 days leave. The O/R may be lower at 20% and can recover somewhat in the second half of May. Overall production control efforts in May may be greater than that in Apr, and inventory is expected to increase by a week in May.
