Cotton prices in Brazil rise 3.52% in Jan'14: CEPEA

Cotton prices have already gone up in Brazil in the month of January, as per the Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (CEPEA), which revealed that cotton prices increased by 3.52 percent year-on-year in the country in the month of January, 2014.
 
According to the CEPEA, compared to January last year, the partial average is now 23.4 percent higher in nominal terms. 
 
The CEPEA states that demand of domestic industries would rise significantly for cotton, however producers in the country have retracted their focus on field activities.
 
Surveys indicate that even with the resumption of business, the disparity between the prices offered by the buyer and asked by the seller hinder the realization of business, and this situation limits the activities of traders, who in turn offer prices well above the prices offered in December 2013, CEPEA states.
 
In December 2013, the country exported 45,300 tons of cotton, according to the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (SECEX), and in 2013, the cotton shipments totaled 572,900 tons which was a decrease of 45.6 percent compared to 2012.
 
The National Supply Company (CONAB) estimates that Brazilian cotton production would reach 1.67 million tons during the 2013-14 harvest season, indicating an increase of 24.7 percent compared to last season, and the area planted for cotton cultivation would also rise from 16.8 percent to 22.5 percent in 2013-14.
