Man-made fibers of lower prices of global cotton consumption shocks

Over the past few days, journalists in the Wucheng District Romanian ports,  Lanxi City interview female ports and other places, it was found that many farmers still have a lot at home last year, picking cotton did not sell. The reason, first, from the second half of last year has been down since the cotton prices, cotton farmers have psychological Hard Trading in a Dream; second is less than the purchase of cotton. season this year is coming, or not different types of headache for many farmers.


City Chief of cotton experts, deputy head of specialty stations Lisheng package at a comprehensive analysis of domestic and foreign market based on the view that cotton prices this year, more market uncertainties, it is difficult to judge the second half of this year the trend of cotton prices, the key is man-made fiber prices low impact of global cotton consumption. Because of the economic situation more conducive to lower prices of raw materials for man-made, therefore, market competition in the textile, chemical fiber will gradually surpass cotton.


According to the International Cotton Information Committee expects that in 2009 the share of world cotton market is expected in 2008 from 39% to 37.7%. Man-made fibers and cotton this year, consumption growth will slow down. Analysts said that only the revival of demand, as well as the United States in 2009 substantially reduced cotton acreage, the dollar weakness, the market situation improved in 2009 in order to rise in cotton prices. If the economy back on track in 2009 before the second half of cotton is expected to enhance competitiveness. Because of acreage reduction to stimulate the trade volume, cotton prices in 2010 may be more firm.


Because from the cotton plant to eventually enter the consumer’s closet need to go through around 18 months time, cotton prices are a long-term economic indicators. Aspect of each production is a supply and demand, the industry chain on every aspect by the current economic crisis.


Analysts predict that demand for the economic prospects of the decision. Developed countries, consumers do not purchasing clothing or home textiles, cotton importing countries have no reason to import cotton. The United States, the European Union and Japan is the biggest textile consumer countries, which weakened the demand for cotton and insufficient demand, cotton prices under pressure, farmers will be reduced enthusiasm. However, to reduce the acreage in 2009, cotton prices likely to stimulate a turn for the better, if the economic recovery in a timely manner, will stimulate demand for the expansion of the textiles, while reducing inventory at the end of cotton, but also a positive.


According to statistics, last year the city area of 85,854 acres of cotton plant, mainly in the Wucheng District Romanian ports, ocean ports and Lanxi City female port and other places, the area over the previous year increased by 12.5% for three consecutive years has been an area of increasing extend more than 10%. The reason is that in previous years, prices have been up and, through improved varieties and other production technologies, a substantial increase in cotton production, improve year by year effectiveness. Cotton price fell sharply because of last year, according to a survey this year area dropped 26.7 percent over last year.


Bao Lisheng suggested that higher levels of plant-old cotton farmers, and suitable for dry to produce much cotton can still continue to produce much cotton, cotton farmers from the production technology to lower production costs, to promote improved varieties, mainly the use of transgenic cotton.
