Customs statistics show that China imported about 333,400 tons of wool in 2010, an increase of 2.1 percent year on year.

2010 has been the most important year so far for China's annual wool import volume, reflecting that China's wool trade has a strong competitive edge in international wool market.

It imported 265,100 tons of raw wool in 2010, registering an increase of 1.3 percent year on year and imports of washed wool were 47,100 tons, witnessing an increase of 20.4 percent.

Imports of wool tops were 14,600 tons, down 21.5 percent; imports of carbonized wool were 2,587 tons, down 21.5 percent and worsted short hair were 3,151 tons, recording an increase of 25.6 percent.

The country imported 177,700 tons of Australian wool in 2010, down 2.2 percent due to the decline of Australian wool production. Of which, 173,000 tons were raw wool, down 0.9 percent.

It imported 51,500 tons of New Zealand wool in 2010, an increase of 14.5 percent, being benefited from tariff quota. Of which imports of raw wool were 29,700 tons, showing an increase of 1.38 percent and washed wool were 21,400 tons, registering an increase of 39.5 percent.

It imported 24,900 tons of wool from Uruguay in 2010, down 1 percent, of which, imports of raw wool were 9410 tons, reflecting an increase of 6.8 percent. Imports of washed wool were 3,876 tons, recording an increase of 65.5 percent and imports of wool tops were 9,912 tons, down 26 percent.

The country imported 12,100 tons of wool from South Africa in 2010, down 28.8 percent and 10,200 tons of wool from Argentina, recording an increase of 37.9 percent. The country's wool import is likely to bear great risks and face many new challenges in 2011.
