The Cotton Market | France

The cotton industry includes all the companies involved in the harvesting and processing of this plant fibre. This is a market that is rather difficult to grasp because it is strongly linked to the geo-political situation of African countries (the main geographical area of cotton production).

The cotton market is highly globalized since China represents 39% of world consumption (source: veille-ci.com). The textile industry is by far the main force of the sector. For example, the C&A group is the world's largest consumer of organic cotton. The textile industry is also the key industry for distinguishing the different qualities of the raw material.

The production market is mainly concentrated in Africa where the regions allow the exploitation of cotton in large factories. Often a national issue and the main contributor to the countries' economies, cotton price trends are a sensitive subject because they are strongly linked to geopolitical issues.

The market is a quasi-state market in African countries where most large factories are publicly owned. Acquisitions are therefore inherently rare in this sector.

Cotton is a particularly old industry in which developments have been rare. In recent years, one of the challenges facing the sector has been the genetically modified cotton that Monsanto has introduced to the market. The success on this type of product has been rather controversial with ecological impacts that are difficult to perceive.
