The Crop Committee of the Association has estimated total cotton supply till end of the current cotton season i.e. up to September 30, 2020 at 382.50 lakh bales, which consists of the opening stock of 32.00 lakh bales at the beginning of the cotton season on October 1, 2019, crop for the season estimated at 335.50 lakh bales, and imports estimated by the CAI at 15.00 lakh bales.
The imports are estimated to be lower by 17.00 lakh bales compared to the previous year’s estimate of 32.00 lakh bales, the CAI said in its June estimate.
Domestic consumption for the entire crop year i.e. up to September 30, 2020 has been estimated at 280.00 lakh bales i.e. at the same level as estimated in the last month's estimate. The consumption for the crop year 2019-20 was earlier estimated by the CAI at 331.00 lakh bales but the same was later reduced by 51.00 lakh bales due to the lower consumption of cotton on account of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
The CAI has retained its export estimate for the season at the same level as estimated in the previous month i.e. at 47 lakh bales against 42.00 lakh bales estimated earlier. The increase of 5.00 lakh bales in the export estimate than estimated in the previous year was made in view of the favourable conditions existing for exports of cotton from India.
The carryover stock estimated at the end of the season is 55.50 lakh bales, according to CAI.
