Competitiveness Analysis of Global Cotton Textiles 

As a part of this Market Intelligence initiative  the Textiles Committee has completed the data collection of cotton textiles especially fiber, yarn and fabric on the various parameters such as production, exports, imports, etc through secondary sources. Also, besides this, the conversion cost of yarn, fabric, made-ups, etc have also been compiled. The publication is divided in four segments dealing with cotton fibre, cotton yarn, cotton fabric and conversion costs respectively. First three segments contain the details on production, export, import, Unit Value Realisation (UVR), Revealed Comparative Advantage (RCA) etc. The fourth segment of the database comprises of the information on the competitiveness of the major countries like raw material cost, factor costs, logistic costs, conversion costs of spinning, texturing, weaving and knitting production, etc.  click here to download the copy of the report[PDF]6.86 MB

In order to better equip the exporting faternity the Textiles Committee has brought out discussion papers on cotton yarn.  These papers provide infomation on major players in the cotton yarn segment which has been furhter divided at six digit HS code.  Nine discussion papers are given below:

Global Trade Analysis of Synthetic Fibre 

In order to bridge the information gap in terms of analysis and dissemination, the Textiles committee is preparing a comprehensive database on the different facets of the textiles sector like production, demand, exports, cost of production, tariffs etc. , so as to share with the trade and industry and govt. for appropriate policy decision through Market Intelligence in Textiles (MIT). This database series on Synthetics attempts to delineate the global players in synthetic fibre,synthetic yarn through their production, exports, imports etc. understanding the international trade in synthetics.
