Cotton yarn import posts nominal hike
Feb '11
In 2010, import of cotton yarn by Japan had enhanced by 8.1 percent from the imports in 2009 to 250,639 bales. The hike in imports has been nominal and there has been a decline in the distribution of cotton yarn within the country. In 2009, cotton yarn imports had been at an all time low owing to the global economic crisis. This has been reported by the Japan Spinners' Association.

Japan's cotton yarn import from Pakistan has dropped by 31.7 percent to 61,732 bales, whereas the imports from countries like Indonesia, India and Thailand witnessed substantial boost. Indonesia, in particular, emerged as the biggest exporter of cotton yarn to Japan as it had exported 83,627 bales last year as against 56,274 bales in 2009.

Imports of combed yarn witnessed a sharp hike of 20.5 percent to 147,280 bales. Imports of cotton blended yarn also experienced a rise of 10.6 percent to 31,791 bales.
