Rise in cotton prices affects the profitability of a spinning mill due to cotton accounting for 60% of the yarn price. The price of cotton generally fluctuates widely between months and between years, mainly because of changes in demand and supply. A 10% rise in cotton price will lead to mills incurring net losses almost in all the counts. The mills will incur a huge net-loss of 14% to 25% of the sales turnover in different counts, if the cotton prices increase to a level of 40% increase. Cost of production and profits under normal trading-conditions have been estimated for 6 popular counts. If the cotton prices increase to a level of 40% increase, the mills will incur a huge net-loss of 14% to 25% of the sales turnover in different counts, unless the increase in cotton prices is offset by the increase in yarn-prices and reduction in other input-costs.

The anticipated total textiles and clothing exports from India in the year 2016-17 will be around $45 billion. With this in view, the cotton yarn requirements for export and domestic consumption and the corresponding cotton requirements have been projected for the 12th five year plan period (2012-13 to 2016-17). Projections are also made with reference to cultivated area and yield per hectare that will be needed to produce the required quantity of cotton. The quality requirements of cotton to produce yarns meant for high speed looms are also briefly touched upon in this report.
