Pakistan biggest supplier of cotton yarn to China
Apr '11
Taking full advantage of its low production cost, Pakistan has emerged as the largest supplier of cotton yarn for China in 2010.

In 2010, Mainland China imported 336,800 tons of cotton yarn from Pakistan, accounting for 30 percent of total imports, amounting to US $892 million, an increase of 17.74 percent.

Though Pakistan has retained number one position, its exports of cotton yarn to China registered a negative growth rate of 12.23 percent, due to a couple of reasons. In 2010, Pakistan was devastated by one of the biggest floods of its history. Due to this flood, cotton yarn production declined and it was compelled to cap its exports.

On the other hand, its domestic consumption of cotton yarn increased. Its export policy too played a negative role. Due to all these reasons, exports of cotton yarn from Pakistan were limited.

China's imports from India, Vietnam and Taiwan each, accounted for nearly10 percent in total import bill. While imports from India and Vietnam increased 67.96 percent and 38.56 percent respectively, imports from Taiwan declined by 3.36 percent.

Import prices of cotton yarn from Pakistan, China Taiwan, Uzbekistan and Thailand were lower than the average import price. For imports from Taiwan, it was 20.70 percent lower. It was 10 percent less for remaining three countries.

Average prices of cotton yarn imports from India, Vietnam and Indonesia were about 7 percent higher than the national average price.

Unit price of cotton yarn imports in 2010 grew significantly compared to 2009. Import price of cotton yarn from Uzbekistan showed improvement of nearly 60 percent. For remaining countries, it recorded increment from 20 to 40 percent.
