Cotton Outlook's Estimates Indicate Continued Rise In World Stocks

Cotton Outlook’s world production number for 2013/14 has been raised by 140,000 tonnes. The biggest increases are for India and Brazil.

Consumption during the same season has been reduced by 90,000 tonnes, owing mainly to a lower figure for China.

As a result, the season’s surplus is estimated at 2,301,000 tonnes, against 2,071,000 forecast a month ago.

The 2014/15 world production figure has been reduced by a net 2,000 tonnes. Reductions for China and Uzbekistan have been largely offset by an increase for the United States.

Global stocks are expected to rise by 1,151,00 tones next season.
