Uzbekistan: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UZ2024-0001
The global cotton industry is still readjusting to lower post-pandemic demand, and Uzbekistan wasn’t spared the effects of the market overhang. Uzbekistan's strong vertical integration and government support for the industry have helped drive both its resiliency and recovery. Cotton production is forecast higher due to favorable weather at the start of the season as well as yield-enhancing investments in seeds, pest control, and water management. Uzbekistan lint production in marketing year (MY) 2024/25 is anticipated to reach 699,000 metric tons. Consumption is expected to continue to slowly outpace production as processing capacity expands due to government investment. In MY 2024/25, lint cotton consumption is forecast higher at 725,000 MT and imports will fill the gap.
