Cotton industry chain is in a circle

Difficulty of textile enterprises

A person in charge of a large-scale textile company in Guangdong told reporters: “Our domestic and international price difference per ton of lint is about 3,000 yuan, and domestic stocks are still tight. Is this normal? Our material costs are higher than others, and labor costs are also higher than in Southeast Asia. Textile and apparel Where are the corporate roads and how do Chinese textile companies compete fairly with foreign companies?"

He told reporters that after the financial crisis, most textile companies have been in a sluggish state, export orders have decreased, textile companies once suffered from shortages of labor, and cotton prices and labor costs have continued to climb, making it difficult for all textile companies. On the other hand, lack of innovation, long research and development cycle, and high R&D costs also restrict the competitiveness of Chinese textile companies in the international arena. “However, this is related to the overall living environment of the company. Its R&D expenses are directly proportional to the overall revenue of the company,” he explained.

It is expected that the acquisition will commence in early November, when the quality and quantity of seed cotton will be improved. Promote.

Analysts pointed out that with the arrival of new cotton in Xinjiang in China, it will help ease the current tight market conditions, foreign cotton will fall under pressure. However, it is undeniable that imported cotton has a lower price than cotton in the domestic market.

Can the reform break the dilemma?

With the deepening of the reform, the reform of the cotton market has entered the implementation stage. The contents include stopping the supply of reserve cotton, leaving room for new cotton purchases and sales; in addition to the distribution of tariffs within the distribution, in principle, no increase in the issuance of import quotas to encourage textile enterprises to use more domestic cotton; take necessary measures to guide the support of large cotton enterprises and other market players Actively enter the market to prevent "sale of cotton."

Observers pointed out that this is a gospel and will really be in line with the market. Cotton trade will be formed by market supply and demand, and the government will no longer interfere. At the same time, it also protects the basic income of growers. The country no longer temporarily collects and stores at a fixed price. When the market price is low, the planting income of growers is basically guaranteed through state subsidies and the cotton production is stabilized.

However, there are also market participants who have expressed their worries. In the process of implementing the policy, the various contradictions in the subsidy are intertwined. Under the favorable policy, how to achieve a smooth transition, promote the smooth progress of the reform and get rid of the current market cycle, this will fundamentally change the enthusiasm and confidence of late growers.

Whether China's textile enterprises can truly enjoy the benefits of reform and enjoy equal and fair competition in the international arena will have a profound impact on the future direction of Chinese textile enterprises.
