  1. 1. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chain Case Study for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene
  2. 2. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chains for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene Today, the majority of the world’s cotton (75%) is grown in India, China and Bangladesh. India’s cotton production has grown 300% in the past 10 years, staying even on levels of consumption and production and a steep downturn in export quantity. Text
  3. 3. Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene There are 4 stages of cotton progression Raw Cotton and Ginning Spinning Weaving Garments There are 4 challenges for India’s cotton stages Volatile prices, dependence on conventional prices Varied Product Mix & Demand Lack of dedicated facilities Slow to sustain higher revenues
  4. 4. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chains for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene The global reliance on India’s Cotton production could present critical challenges for low cost garment manufacturing. Crop Sustainability Price Quality Geographical Access
  5. 5. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chains for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene The global reliance on India’s Cotton production could present critical challenges for low cost garment manufacturing. Production Yields Price Quality Employment Cotton yields in India are forecasted to plummet 20% in 2014. China is the lead importer of raw cotton from India due to lack of tax. India is expected to surge in the amount of rural female cotton workers.
  6. 6. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chains for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene The global reliance on India’s Cotton production could present critical challenges for low cost garment manufacturing. Global Markets Price Surge India Crop Explotation Lack of Infrastructure Lack of Government support Chinese buyers have struck deals with cotton exporters paying typically $.06 cents less per pound on average under contract. India’s transport infrastructure remains inefficient when compared to the overall surge in population. Pakistan and Bangladesh are being starved from India’s cotton crops in favor of higher price paying China.
  7. 7. India’s Challenges in Cotton Production Global Supply Chains for the Fashion Industry Aidenn Mullen / FASH 503 / Spring 14’ / Professor Greene Global forecast for India’s Cotton commodity market: - China continues to buy more cotton yarn in efforts to bypass duties on raw fibre via future contract tools. - In 2015, India’s cotton crops are forecasted to dip 20% as China proceeds to halt the “stockpiling” efforts of 2014. - Factually, India’s cotton crops were historically high in 2012/11 at 12.9 million bales to 10.1 million bales in 2012/13. - Factoring in typical theories of supply and demand, India’s 1 1/8 inch premium cotton prices are higher than other international manufacturers / textile mills. - India’s cotton quality is much higher than that of China and the rise in need for sustainable cotton crops will increase it’s inherent value in the premium market. - China has recently declared efforts to discontinue cotton commodity stockpiling by extending government rural farmer subsidiary funds. China has also been forecasted for a downturn in cotton crop growth by 3.9 million bales. - Key solutions in the battle for global cotton include the deliberate slow stock release by farmers to compensate for better export demand prices in the eastern cotton market.
