Jun '13
The global production of cotton will substantially support the global mill use consumption from 2012 through 2020, and the total supply will be able to meet the demand for cotton.
 
The global consumption of cotton will be more from 2013 through 2020, and the demand to supply share will increase from 75.16 percent in 2012 to 86.75 percent in 2020, predicts “Global Cotton Supply & End Use Demand: Trends & Forecasts 2013”, a report prepared by the Market Watch division of Fibre2fashion.com.
 
Steep increase in global mill use of cotton and moderate hike in cotton exports is foreseen from 2012 to 2020, says the report.
 
However, the share of mill use in total cotton supply will decrease from 68.38 percent in 2012 to 64.91 percent in 2020 and the share of exports in total cotton supply will drop from 16.86 percent in 2012 to 16.47 percent in 2020.
 
According to the report, the total cotton supply in the world has increased at an annual average growth rate of 2.38 percent during the period 1992-2012.
 
The report attributes the growth in total cotton supply to the annual average growth rate of 2.09 percent in the crop production and 2.27 percent in imports during the period under discussion.
 
It projects the global production of cotton to reach a level of 133.93 million bales of 480 pounds each in 2020 from the current level of 116.90 million bales.
 
Accordingly, the total global supply will increase by around 45 million bales in 2020 from the current level of 223.79 million bales.
 
The total cotton demand in the mill sector of the world has increased at an annual average growth rate of 1.86 percent and that of exports by 2.53 percent during the period 1992-2012. At this rate, the estimated global demand for cotton in mill sector will reach a level of 131.01 million bales in 2020 from the current level of 106.48 million bales. The total global exports will reach to the level of 44.71 million bales from the current level of 37.73 million bales.
