Chinese cotton output to rise in 2011-12

Jun '11
This year, China Cotton Association expects cotton production in the country to be around 6.65 million tons, with Xinjiang region alone accounting for 2.92 million tons. The Association, however, estimates that the country's cotton consumption will also increase by 3.8 percent over last year, and may cross 11 million tons.

In the current season, the area under cotton cultivation in China has increased by 5.2 percent over last year to reach 81 million Mu (1 Chinese Mu = 0.067 hectares), as per the statistics released by the China Cotton Association.

By May-end, sowing of cotton seeds was completed in 98.5 percent of the estimated area. Hence, it is expected that cotton production this year will be better than last year, if no unforeseen natural calamity strikes in the next few months.

In 2010-11, China produced 5.96 million tons of cotton, of which Xinjiang region accounted for 2.48 million tons, according to the data from National Bureau of Statistics.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has predicted that cotton consumption in China will rise to 13 million tons by 2015. Thus, the cotton production-consumption gap in China is expected to widen in the next few years. And hence, the country's high level of dependency on cotton imports will continue for some more years.

During the initial five months of 2011, China imported 1.21 million tons of cotton, showing a year-on-year decrease of 11.8 percent. However, the value of imports increased by 53.4 percent on a year-on-year basis to touch US$ 3.645 billion.
