Cotton Trade

Cotton trade occupied a huge market in world trade. The cotton-producing countries are looking to export their cultivated cotton to other countries for earning foreign exchange after fulfilling their domestic demands.

Top 10 Cotton Importers In The World

Top 10 Cotton Importers of the World:

The position of a country in the list could be changed but most of the statistics show that the followings are the most cotton importers in the world. Generally, cotton is imported by the country where textile industries grow up rapidly. In the subcontinent, the textile industry grows day by day, especially in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan, they import their raw fiber from the other cotton exporting countries.

  1. China
  2. Turkey
  3. Indonesia
  4. Mexico
  5. Thailand
  6. Pakistan
  7. Russia
  8. South Korea
  9. Italy
  10. India

Cotton import and export are done depending on the cotton production and demand for cotton use. If we want to get excellent finished goods then we have to import good quality cotton fiber. For this reason, we have to know the characteristics of different countries’ cotton.

So, before importing, we have to be sure about the quality and properties of cotton.

      • Dear Sir / Madam,


        We are an independent Egyptian raw cotton commission agent located in Alexandria, Egypt, our commission is straight forward at a maximum of 1.5 cent/lb, we are supplier sourcing agent that provide the following services:

        1-Connecting you with the right supplier & right order according to your exact order’s quality specifications, shipping terms & payment methods.

        2-We protect you from suppliers’ cheating & fraud like sending you different quality specifications than agreed upon or changing lot number (so issued quality certificates may indicate false specifications) or poor quality due to bad ginning process (although the cotton input being ginned is of higher quality at which the supplier sets its pricing upon) or sending an order that isn’t similar to the sample or any other scenario that may happen as we have a wide experience in the Egyptian cotton market & its secrets.

        3-Quality inspection of order before loading for shipment ensuring that the order matches your exact requirements & specifications as well as ensuring the required authenticated certificates & paper work reflect the real condition of the goods.

        4-We negotiate prices with suppliers and offer the best competitive prices in the market according to your specifictions as we have connections with almost all Egyptian cotton companies & a wide expertise in the Egyptian cotton market (e.g. you can get a final price offer for a specific quality at 160 cent/lb although we can get you an offer for the same order at discounted price of 155 cent/lb).

        5-We are ready to settle any conflicts that may arise & ensure the payment of any penalties or claims aginst the supplier which will be a very rare case as we take all precautionary procedures, collect all information especially about ginning process which determines the real quality (grade) of the cotton as well as follow up your order in all stages for a smooth transaction.

        We take our commission per lb. as to avoid any advantage from raising the price on our customers unlike percentage commission agents (which will have a conflict of interest), so we are keen on providing your company the best price offers as well as guaranteeing your order’s quality.

        Kindly forward this e-mail to the purchasing manager.

        All inquiries for further details are welcomed, prompt response will be highly appreciated.
