Cotton price frenzy drives costs of other fibres

Apr '10
At present, China's price index of standard cotton has already broken 16,000 Yuan per ton mark and is close to 17,000 Yuan per ton mark, while the market price of long-staple cotton is as high as 24,000 Yuan per ton.

When cotton prices rise, it does not only drive overall chain costs of cotton textile industry higher, but prices of chemical fiber, silk and other raw materials, too consider and use, cotton price as a reference.

Prices of chemical fiber, raw silk, wool and other raw material products too have continued to rise since the beginning of this year, for example, price of spandex 40D rose from 48,000 Yuan / ton to 55,000 Yuan / ton, a gain of 14.58 percent.

Australian wool price increased from 45,000 Yuan / ton in last June to 80,000 Yuan / ton, up nearly 50 percent. While price of raw silk climbed from 170,000 Yuan per ton in October last year to around 250,000 Yuan per ton currently, up more than 47 percent.

These price hikes show that the "price frenzy" of textile and apparel industry has virtually extended to all the segments of raw materials consumed in the textile sector, since the prices of cotton began growing from the onset of new cotton season.
