Cotton, Indian cotton, West African cotton, and a certain amount of 2020/21 Brazilian cotton arrived in Hong Kong and entered storage, and cotton stocks in China’s main ports continued to bottom out.

According to industry analysis, in addition to the high price quotations, the reasons for the slow shipment of cotton in the port include the spread of the epidemic and the upgrading of prevention and control measures in various places. , Hebei and other places, inter-provincial and regional road transportation has been greatly restricted and not smooth (some districts and counties have vehicles passing through the epidemic area, and are not allowed to go off the high-speed), and some cotton-using enterprises have delayed the progress of purchasing and picking up cotton outside the country. In addition, since February 2022, the new export orders of cotton textiles and clothing have been significantly lower than expected, which is also an important factor for OEM and export-oriented enterprises to reduce the consumption of American cotton and Brazilian cotton.
