The average operation rate at the 23 Chinese wire & cable producers, representing 1.40 million mt/yr in capacity, tumbled in January, according to SMM survey.  

SHANGHAI, Feb. 10 (SMM) – The average operation rate at the 23 Chinese wire & cable producers, representing 1.40 million mt/yr in capacity, tumbled in January, according to SMM survey.  

SMM survey finds the rate at those surveyed was 49.12 percent in January, down 21.92 percentage points year-on-year and 28.91 percentage points month-on-month.

The big drop in the rate was due mainly to production halts for the holiday, which was longer than past years, and off-demand season. 

The high base in January 2016 was another reason behind the decline, as the 2016 Chinese New Year holiday fell in February.
