North America Textile Market Trends

Increasing demand for North America's apparels driving the market

Owing to ideal weather and adequate water supply in practically all producing states, the cotton harvest is ongoing and going well. Increased production would typically result from favorable international fibre prices and high domestic and global demand, but producers hasn't been able to take full advantage of opportunities because they can't access high-quality genetically modified seeds and other inputs like agrochemicals and non-chemical fertilizers. Given that Mexico's textile sector relies on American cotton of the highest quality to meet demand, cotton imports from the United States are strong and are expected to rise.
