In terms of weaving, as we enter mid April, there continues to be a trend of uneven heating and cooling, and the market reflects that orders for silk and satin varieties with export characteristics and regular domestic sales orders are not satisfactory. After the Qingming Festival holiday, there is also the March 3rd holiday, and the weaving process still maintains the rhythm of picking up goods according to demand.


From the past two weeks, it can be seen that there has been a significant downward trend in raw silk prices since the listing of Spring Cocoon, which objectively reflects that the current downstream demand is not very sufficient, domestic demand is still in the recovery period, and export growth is not significant. Therefore, overall, the industrial chain may face an oversupply situation in the future. Analysts from Business Society believe that Spring Cocoon is about to go public on a large scale, and after the Qingming Festival holiday, it will also usher in the March 3rd holiday. Downstream will still maintain the rhythm of on-demand procurement, and the prices of raw silk and dried cocoons will remain in a weak adjustment market in the short term.
