Cotlook estimates portend sharp drop in world stocks during 2007/08

Feb '07
Cotlook Limited initial production and consumption forecasts for the 2007/2008 international cotton season (August/July) suggest a shortfall in supply of no less than 1,562,000 tonnes.

A drop in global stocks of that magnitude would finally offset the 2,711,000 tonnes added to the balance sheet in the record production year of 2004/05, following estimated decreases of 191,000 in 2005/2006 and of a predicted 944,000 tonnes during 2006/2007.

The bulk of the foreseeable supply deficit continues to be in China, where domestic output will probably not quite match the current season's record level, whereas the long-term growth trend in consumption will persist.

Full details of Cotlook's Supply and Demand Estimates for 2007/2008 are published in this week's edition of the weekly Cotton Outlook magazine.

Cotton Outlook is published by Cotlook Limited, an independent Merseyside-based company that has been engaged in publishing cotton news for around 80 years.

Cotton Outlook is run and staffed by people who have no trading interest in raw cotton, and has thus won a world-wide reputation for accuracy and impartiality. For over 25 years it has compiled and published the Cotlook A Index of raw cotton values.
