Rising cotton, yarn prices may hit apparel exports target: AEPC chairman

The unabated surge in prices of cotton and cotton yarn may affect the country's apparel exports target of USD 19-20 billion during the current fiscal, AEPC chairman Narendra Goenka said on Thursday. He said that the prices have jumped by about 125-130 per cent during the last 18 months and one of the reasons for that would be "unchecked" exports of cotton and cotton yarn. He suggested the government to impose a temporary ban on exports of cotton and cotton yarn like Indonesia has done for its palm oil. "In 2021-22, the exports were USD 16 billion and we are targeting USD 19-20 billion this fiscal. But because of the price rise, it looks to be a concern on achieving the target.

He added that if the price rise does not stop, global customers would start looking at sourcing options other than India. "About 60-70 per cent of cotton and cotton yarn are going to our competitor countries like Bangladesh and .
