By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Cotton Price Forecast Report” report to their offering.

The China Cotton Index inched down 1% to 13,182 Yuan a ton. In Pakistan, cotton prices remained under pressure due to fear of rain damage which may produce water-laden lint due to the continuing rainfall in several parts of the cotton belt. Moreover, global weakness in cotton and yarn prices also pressured cotton markets.

The official spot rate averaged PakRs4,850 per maund ex-Karachi, down 12% on the month. According to floor brokers, spinners from Indonesia and Bangladesh have started taking interest in Pakistani cotton as the prices are comparatively lower than other cotton-producing countries including China, US and India.

Cotton prices in India moved down on weak demand from mills and normal monsoon progress. Kapas or raw cotton traded flat on limited ginning demand. Most varieties saw prices plunge 2-4% month on month in July.
