Summary

Table of Contents

The “World Cotton Fibre – Trends in Demand and Supply” is the Seventh annual compendium in a se-ries from YarnsandFibers covering the trends in global demand and supply of textile fibre/filament in-dustry. The compilation covers all major fibre producing countries accounting for 85% of global pro-duction and consumption. Time series on trends from 1990 to 2011 on production, imports, exports and apparent consumption is presented country-wise for 13 countries including all major Asian coun-tries, USA and West Europe.

In this Report we have captured the trends seen in 2011 in textile fibre/filament industry including natural fibres, particularly cotton. The analysis assesses the positions of fibres/filaments industry as events unfolded.

The Report’s 48 pages are richly annotated with authoritative and unbiased objective description, and hard-to-find statistical facts. The report also provides unequivocal views on future potential while throwing light on the prevailing climate in key regional markets and projections upto 2017 of availabil-ity and demand for all fibres.

The Report is divided into two sections: Fibre-wise View and Region/Country wise View.


A declining trend of cotton's share in textiles fibres since the 1970s compare to the chemical textiles was stated in 1960 as the part of cotton was 68.3% against 21,8% for chemical textiles and at the oppo-site the percentages were respectively of 39.7% and 57.7% in 2002. It further came to 34.1% and 57.8% by 2011. Nevertheless, cotton remains by far the most important natural fibre. In a development context, cotton is crucially important for income and employment provided in its production and processing. Much of the growth of cotton production since the end of the Second World War was due to improved yield i.e. output per hectare which more than multiplied by four quadrupled between 1945 and 2007, from 200 kgs per hectare to 754 kgs per hectare, rather than to expanded area cultivated land increased by only 60% between 1945-2011 period (expanding from 22.3 million hec-tares to 35.7 millions).

In 2011, cotton was grown in 78 countries. In marketing year 2011, the four main producing countries were China, India, the USA and Pakistan and accounted for approximately 70% of world output. If Uz-bekistan, Australia and Brazil, seven countries would account for 85% of world cotton production. This concentration in cotton production, appears to increase for several years, has to be put into perspec-tive by considering the impact of domestic policy reforms in the largest cotton producing countries, as well as climatic and sanitary contingencies.
