Cotton Outlook Forecasts Greater Additions To World Ending Stocks
BIRKENHEAD, United Kingdom — July 24, 2013 — Cotton Outlook's world production number for 2012/13
has been raised by 278,000 tonnes, leading to greater carryover in the new season. This is partly
due to the emergence of a bumper crop in India.
The 2013/14 global production figure has been revised upwards by nearly 70,000 tonnes. This change is primarily attributed to an increase for China. A decline in consumption (mainly for smaller markets) has also contributed to the surplus of production over consumption.
World stocks are expected to rise by over 2,141,000 tonnes next season, in comparison to 3,455,000tonnes added during the current season.
