Spinners see only dark tunnel ahead
September 2016
In my business life, I have not seen a worse situation than this, where such a big disparity is there between spot cotton prices and yarn prices. This disparity for such an extended period of time shows there is a deep rooted problem and it’s not a temporary feature. The current isolated spurt in Indian cotton prices has aggravated the situation to an extent that many can hear the death knell. The more disturbing fact is that no domestic yarn buyer is hassled or is rushing to buy yarn-they know cotton prices have moved 50 per cent and yarn just 20 per cent-still no anxiety! International buyers have diverted their orders as cotton in India has increased much much more in comparison to international cotton prices.

Rising cotton prices to hit hard small players
September 2016
The sharp rise of over 35 per cent in domestic cotton prices since May 2016 will squeeze ginners and spinners profitability by over 15 per cent, says India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra). Ind-Ra expects prices to remain elevated around the current levels of Rs 120 per kg to Rs 127 per kg till the end of the cotton crop year of September 2016. The spike in cotton prices will adversely impact the profitability of pure cotton ginners and spinners due to their inability to pass on this steep increase to their customers, at once, due to decreasing cotton demand and increased competitiveness of manmade fibre.

At this stage, a sharp drop in cotton prices is only a far cry, reveals an ITJ Exclusive Report. Cotton has never failed in the last one decade to kick up controversies with various interests getting down to a tug of war trying to call the shots. The year 2006 is no exception. The sharp rise of over 35 per cent in domestic cotton prices since May 2016 is certain to squeeze ginners and spinners profitability by over 15 per cent, says India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra).
