TITLE “Analysis of Fluctuation in Prices of Raw Cotton & Cotton Yarn”
To understand the domestic and international market of raw cotton and cotton yarn. To analyze the fluctuations in prices of raw cotton and cotton yarn. To find out the basic reasons for the fluctuations in prices of raw cotton. To determine the impact of price on the demand of cotton. Objectives
Research design: Descriptive Data collection: Primary & Secondary Universe: All the suppliers who supply raw cotton. Population: All the suppliers who supply raw cotton to Vardhman. Sampling design: Convenience. Sampling unit: Any respondent who is working with Vardhman as supplier of raw cotton. Sample size: 10 Research Methodology

Cotton exports are freely allowed, and rightly so, this makes domestic cotton prices follow international prices. Cotton accounts for 65-70 per cent of the yarn cost and a 35 per cent increase in cotton prices means a 20 per cent increase in yarn prices. Power constitutes the second most important element of cost; this has gone up by 30- 40 per cent due to power cuts and the need to buy power from the open market or generate it using liquid fuels. For mills that pay the full cost of power, it accounts for 15 per cent of the yarn cost in normal conditions; in today's situation, it is as high as 20-21 per cent. Findings
There is going to be an increased shortage of yarn in days to come, as the per consumption is increasing day by day in India. Biological factors are considered as the most important factors which influence cotton prices. Demand is fluctuating as the prices are not stable and in future prices are lightly to rise. Cont…
From the study it is concluded that government restrictions played a vital role in controlling the cotton and cotton yarn prices. In order to control the rising in international export of cotton yarn, government had to impose restrictions, which resulted in fall in price. Study also concludes that there will be rise in cotton prices in future as well. Biological factors and other factors have also been responsible for fluctuation in prices of cotton. Conclusion
