The Irish market research company Research and Markets has recently published the study “Global Organic Cotton Market: An Analysis”. This shows that India remains the leading producer of organic cotton in 2010 – for the third year in succession.
For 2011, the market researcher forecasts a slight weakening in the rapid market growth of organic cotton, as the crops in India are smaller. On the other hand, the forecast for the subsequent years is promising: the study shows a continuously rising consumer demand for organic cotton products. Moreover, brand manufacturers and the trade are extending their collections, and other producer countries like China, Syria, Turkey and the USA are also on the up. Organic cotton has achieved a market share of 1.1 % of world market production until now.
