Spinning cotton: Increasing global competition and diminishing assistance will oscillate revenue

Cotton Farming in the US

The Cotton Farming industry in the United States has experienced extremely volatile operating conditions over the past five years. Due to large-scale fluctuations in demand and prices, industry profit margins have remained volatile. A fall in cotton prices after their artificial inflation in 2010 and 2011 has reduced profit margins markedly. In the coming years, the industry is expected to consolidate. Barring any significant shocks (such as trade bans or floods), industry revenue is expected to slightly decline.

Farms in this industry primarily grow cotton, which is typically used in textile manufacturing, while the plant’s cottonseed is exploited for its oil and used in some livestock feeds. Moreover, at least half of all cotton produced domestically is exported to overseas textile producers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
