Editorial: Are Global Denim Prices Set for a Major Price Hike?
published in Issue 152, September 2011
In this report, Robin Anson looks at the sharp increases in the price of cotton over the past year, and how this is affecting the denim fabric market. In the first half of 2011, exports of cotton denim fabric from China were down in volume by 25% compared with the corresponding period in 2010 but were up in value by 6% -- reflecting a 41% hike in the average export price. Imports of denim fabric into China also fell in volume terms, suggesting either falling activity in jeans manufacturing in China or cuts made by manufacturers in the hope of lower prices in due course. Robin Anson provides insight and analysis of cotton fabric production costs and denim fabric trade trends, making this report invaluable for anyone with a vested interest in fabric production and export trends.

This is what our customers say:
"In 1987 I was working as a graduate-trainee in the buying teams at Marks & Spencer in London. I was asked to prepare a paper on the textile and clothing industry in Italy. In my search for information I discovered Textile Outlook International. The quality of information that this publication provided was nothing short of excellent. As I look back over the past 25 years, there have been several times that I've turned to the publications of Textiles Intelligence. They have always been of the highest quality and provided me with the opportunity to talk with confidence about the global textile & clothing industries. Today, I'm the Chief Supply Office for Umbro, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike Inc. As I look back, of course there are many factors that have helped me to get to where I am today. I've no doubt that the information provided by Textiles Intelligence has been a contributory factor."
