India will surpass China to become the world's largest cotton producer
according to the new report, China's cotton production is gradually declining, and India is expected to surpass China to become the world's largest cotton producer
cotton production is concentrated in a few countries. It is expected that the five major cotton producing countries in the world will produce nearly 80% of the production in 2015/16, plus the decline in the overall cost of solar power generation
according to the statistics of the United States Department of agriculture (USDA), India and China account for more than 50% of the global cotton production, but China's production is declining, while the utilization of India's electronic tensile testing machine is growing
it is estimated that India will surpass China to become the world's largest cotton producer on 2015/16. According to the report, the predicted output is about 29.5 million bales, pushing India to the world, accounting for 26.5% of the output
for China, the output of 2015/16 is expected to be revised down by 10% to 2.7 million packages, which is the lowest since 2003/04, accounting for 24% of the global output, and will continue to decline
the report points out that "the difference in production prospects between China and India can be traced back to several decades, partly because of the rise in wages and production costs in China, while new technologies and production practices have driven India's output to increase significantly in recent years". "India surpassed the United States in output for the first time in 2006, and now it is preparing to surpass China, which has been the world's largest cotton producer since 1982."
