Uzbek cotton yarn prices decline in June
Jun '13
The prices of cotton yarn have declined in Uzbekistan this month, due to a combination of factors.
According to experts, the months of June, July and August are generally slack season for Uzbekistan’s cotton yarn industry, as exports decrease by about 30-40 percent during this period.
Secondly, it is end of the season period in China, which buys 60-70 percent of Uzbek cotton yarn. Normally, the Chinese market is always down in end of the season period, experts say.
Russia, Turkey and some European countries also import cotton yarn from Uzbekistan.
Chinese traders mostly buy ring spun carded yarn for knitting or weaving, especially counts such as Ne18.5, Ne21 and Ne32.
On the other hand, Turkey’s cotton yarn imports from Uzbekistan mostly consist of Ne20, Ne24 and Ne30 carded yarn for weaving, while Russia imports OE54/1 Ne28 carded yarn and Ne32 carded yarn.
Cost-wise, Uzbek yarn is cheaper compared to yarn manufactured in India, Pakistan and China. However, Uzbek yarn attract 5 percent customs duty and 17 percent VAT at the Chinese ports.
On June 26, the prices of single carded yarn 20/1 were assessed at US$ 2.90/kg, 21/1 at US$ 3.00/kg, 24/1 at US$ 3.05/kg, 30/1 at US$ 3.10/kg and 32/1 at US$ 3.20/kg.
Similarly, the prices of double carded yarn 20/2 were quoted at US$ 3.35/kg, 21/2 at US$ 3.40/kg, 24/2 at 3.45/kg, 30/2 at US$ 3.50/kg and 32/2 at US$ 3.60/kg.
