Raw cotton & yarn prop up textile exports

Textile exports of Pakistan saw improvement of 19.42 percent after long, in the month of October this year, compared to the same month last year. Textile goods export of October grew by 11.33 percent against its previous month i.e. September, revealed Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS).

These improved exports made positive impact on the exports of first four months of the ongoing fiscal year, which witnessed a marginal fall of 4.72 percent in its overall exports compared to the corresponding months, last year.

Remarkable shipments of raw cotton and cotton yarn during these months were the key reasons for the recovery in textile exports. However, these products have become the major issues of concern for the value-added textile products due to elevated prices of these items.

Exporters do not consider this export growth as an improvement because this growth in textile exports is due to the export of raw materials, while shipments of value-added products can bring in better returns.

The unit price of raw cotton and cotton yarn is very low compared to the prices of the value-added products. Raw cotton exports saw an outstanding improvement of around 79 percent in first four months of current fiscal compared to the same months of last year.

Exports of cotton yarn increased by almost 14 percent during this period over the corresponding period last year and export of yarn except cotton yarn also experienced growth of 82 percent during July-October of ongoing fiscal.

Exports of value-added products are still facing challenges, for instance, exports of knitwear, bed-wear, towel, cotton cloth and cotton carded plunged down by almost 8 percent, 9 percent, 9.82 percent, 30.41 percent and 90.31 percent, respectively during aforesaid period.

Exports of tents, canvas and tarpaulin also tumbled down by 13 percent each. Conversely, the exports of readymade garments increased by 5.44 percent and that of silk & synthetic textile by 74.23 percent during this period.
