Inventory of Chinese textile industry improves in Feb'13
Mar '13
The inventory and sales rates of China’s overall textile industry showed significant improvement in February this year. 
According to spot checks conducted by the China Cotton Reserves, the production of yarn and fabrics of Chinese textile enterprises increased by 5.6 percent year-on-year. In comparison, the sales rate grew only by 2.3 percent year-on-year.
However, the inventory of cotton reduced by 7.1 percent year-on-year, and the national cotton stocks at the end of February were nearly 20.1 percent lower compared to the average stock of the past three years.
Meanwhile, the prices of yarn and fabric continued to rise. The data of the National Cotton Market Monitoring System showed that the price of 32s cotton carded yarn increased by 0.6 percent compared with the price at the beginning of the year. Similarly, the price of cotton fabric grew by 0.9 percent compared with the beginning of 2013.
The Chinese Textile Industry Federation believes that the performance of the Chinese textile industry will remain steady in the beginning part of the year, and will improve in the second half of 2013.
It is also expected that the demand for cotton will significantly grow, due to increase in production and sales of the Chinese textile industry.
