In 2019, the new production capacity of polyester filament was 2.54 million tons, a decrease of 560,000 tons from the 3.1 million tons in 2018, a decrease of 2.1 percentage points. Among them, melt direct spinning was 2.39 million tons and chip spinning was 150,000 tons. China's total production capacity reached 4051 10,000 tons/year, successfully exceeded the 40 million ton mark. The new production capacity during the year is still mainly concentrated in large-scale polyester factories, mainly POY

In 2020, China's polyester filament supply will continue to expand, with a planned new capacity of 3.29 million tons, including 2.6 million tons of melt-spinning and 690,000 tons of slice spinning (including industrial yarn), with a growth rate of 8.1%, compared with 2019 The growth rate rose by 1.4 percentage points. From the perspective of the time for the new capacity to be put into production, the distribution will be even in 2020, and it will be relatively scattered in the first half of the year. From the perspective of the new capacity structure, it is still mainly concentrated in the forefront of large-scale production capacity. Development situation, seizing the opportunity of refining and chemical industry and supporting the expansion of downstream polyester have become one of the main trends in the production of polyester filament industry. From the perspective of new production capacity supporting products, ultra-fine denier, intelligent, full extinction and other relatively high added value Differentiated products dominate, and due to the surge in texturing equipment in recent years, POY is still the mainstay.
