India: Cotton and Products Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2022-0106

FAS Mumbai estimates marketing year (MY) 2022/23 India cotton production at 27.5 million 480 lb. bales, on 13 million hectares. Widespread planting of unapproved hybrids in Central India is likely to improve yields due to its shorter maturity duration which will allow for fewer heavy infestations of pink bollworm. Farmers continue to store and hold supplies, as prices remain elevated. Consequently, new crop market arrivals are much lower than last year. Mill consumption is estimated at 23.8 million 480 lb. bales as textile demand from major export markets weakens. An import duty of ten percent on raw cotton has been reinstated since November 1, but mills continue to source extra-long staple cotton for export commitments.
