The cotton price in Indian market is all set to increase as Chinese cotton imports continue to surge. Cotton imports shot up 30 percent y-o-y between Sept 2011 and June 2012. Chinese cotton yarn imports too reached 1.02 million tons whereas, exports declined by 11.90 percent to 225,500 tons.

In Polyester fibre market, PSF manufacturers in Asian region are facing pressure from higher feedstock price as crude oil price shot up drastically last week which is expected to maintain this level despite the European crisis.
PTA and MEG price was around US$ 1010/ton and $ 960/ton respectively in Asian market, yesterday. In F E Asian market, PSF prices were offered at US$ 1470/ton, but according to market experts it is expected to increase further.

In the Indian markets, VSF price too is quoting at high levels of around US$ 2100/ton to US$ 2125/ton and is expected to touch levels of US$ 2150/ton in near future.
