Chinese cotton yarn imports skyrocket in 2012

Jul '12

Chinese cotton yarn imports have skyrocketed in the first five months of the current year, while on the other hand exports of the commodity have slipped.

According to statistics, China imported 552,800 tons of cotton yarn in the period, up 197,000 tons or a stupendous 55.37 percent year on year.

On export side, China totally exported 187,300 tons of cotton yarn in the period, down 16,700 tons or 8.18 percent from a year earlier.

The main reason for the hike in imports is due to the vast difference of 1,500-2,000 Yuan per ton in prices between domestic and imported cotton yarn.

This again is mainly due to the huge difference between prices of imported and domestically available cotton.

Secondly, quality of cotton yarn imported from India and China has witnessed great improvement, mainly due to adoption of latest technology in these countries.

Cotton yarn exports have dipped mainly due to the uncompetitive advantage vis-à-vis yarn from India and Pakistan. Current export trends indicate only high-end cotton yarns are garnering growth.

Experts predict that till domestic cotton prices are not comparable with imported cotton, the trend of high cotton yarn imports will maintain.
