Kuraray announces 10-15% price increase on polyester staple fiber, effective June 1

TOKYO, May 11, 2022-

Kuraray announces its decision to increase the prices of polyester staple fiber, for shipments commencing June 1, 2022.

In addition to the significant increase in the cost of key raw materials and utilities resulting from a rise in crude oil prices, Kuraray’s earnings continue to experience pressure from soaring logistics and manufacturing costs, the rapid depreciation of the yen, associated with increased costs for facility maintenance and renewal, which are beyond the scope of cost absorption through the Company’s internal efforts.
