Cotton market experiences increased concentration

09
Sep '09
After declining significantly in 2008/09, both world cotton mill use and production are expected to stabilize in 2009/10. World cotton production is forecast slightly down at 23.3 million tons due to reduced area. As the world economy gradually stabilizes and economic prospects for 2010 improve in most parts of the world, global cotton mill use is expected to recover by a small amount to 23.6 million tons. World cotton imports are expected to rebound by 5% to 6.8 million tons in 2009/10, driven by increased demand. World ending stocks are forecast slightly lower, at 12.0 million tons.

The world cotton market is experiencing increased concentration. In the last decade, production and spinning of cotton have continued to grow faster in Asia than in the rest of the world. In addition, in the last few years trade of cotton became more concentrated amongst the largest merchants and this trend will continue during 2009/10. Nevertheless, global cotton trade remains very competitive.

The season-average Cotlook A Index experienced a significant drop in 2008/09, to 61 cents per pound, due to falling consumption. In addition, cotton prices were extremely volatile during that season due to the global economic crisis. The season-average Cotlook A Index is expected to recover slightly in 2009/10, to 63 cents per pound with a 95% confidence interval ranging from 55 cents per pounds to 73 cents per pounds.
