December 2023 Production Times

This month, the overall production time for our products has decreased slightly, with the average completion time now at 49.5 days, a drop from last month’s 50.8 days. Notably, our Premlene Sheet Rubber, National Silicone Foam, and Rubatex Sponge lines have seen a reduction in production time by 5 days. However, our National Silicone Solid line has experienced an increase of 5 days in production time. All other product lines remained the same.

Regarding factory activities, there has been little change in China over the past month. Economists upgraded the forecasts for the world’s second-largest economy after better-than-expected third quarter data, but despite a flurry of policy support measures, the recovery has shown signs of slowing down. The Chinese domestic market cannot make up for export reduction to Europe and the United States. As a result, recent details show that factories are producing less and hiring fewer people. Policy support will remain in the spotlight as global demand is expected to stay weak heading into 2024.
