The wide difference in prices of domestic and imported cotton is making operations of Chinese textile enterprises uncompetitive, say experts.
It is estimated that price difference between domestic cotton is between 3000-4000 Yuan / ton.
Secondly, textile enterprises in India and Pakistan have access to low priced cotton, which makes it extremely difficult for Chinese units to compete in global markets.
Many Chinese companies are unable to purchase or import low-cost cotton, due to quota restrictions.
Considering competition from other low-cost countries like Bangladesh and Vietnam, survival has become difficult for the Chinese textile and apparel sector.
