MarketResearchReports.Biz announces addition of new report “ Global Organic Cotton Market: An Analysis” to its database.


Organic cotton originates from organic agriculture and is grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides or genetically modified (GM) seeds. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.

Despite the global recession in 2009, market for organic cotton continued to rise in the period 2005-2009. Organic cotton currently represents only 1.1% of total global cotton production, but the market for organic cotton is witnessing continued and rapid expansion driven mainly by growing consumer interest in green products, significant expansion of existing organic cotton programs by brands and retailers, and the growing usage in personal care items, home furnishings, clothing etc. India remained the top organic cotton producing nation in 2009-10 for the third straight year. Other major organic cotton producers include Syria, Turkey, China and the US.

Global organic cotton production is likely to slow down in 2011 because of slowed production in India. South East Asia remains the highest producer region with India contributing more than 80% of organic cotton production to the region. Indias high production of organic cotton could be attributed to factors such as a strong agronomy, economies of scale and close links to a vast manufacturing base. Global production is likely to be affected in 2011 because production of organic cotton in India has slowed down as a result of regulatory changes and restricted availability of non-GM planting seed. However, global organic cotton production is likely to pick up momentum beyond 2011-12 on account of improvement in trade relations, balanced world supply distribution and strong growth in countries like Turkey, Syria, and Tanzania.
