Record Consumption in
2000/01 Fueled by Increases in Major Consuming Countries
World consumption for marketing
year 2000/01 is forecast at 92.27 million bales up 1.43 million
(1.6 percent) from the 1999/2000 marketing year estimate of 90.84
million bales. Increased consumption is forecast for nine of the
top-ten consuming countries, except China. The increases in these
nine countries account for 93 percent of the total increase in
world consumption, but these countries only represent 57 percent
of total consumption. Consumption in India, Pakistan, Turkey,
Brazil, and Mexico are forecast to reach new record highs in
2000/01. Russia consumption is forecast at the highest level in
seven years, while consumption in Indonesia is forecast to return
to the record level seen in 1998/99. Consumption in the United
States and the European Union, while not at record levels, are
forecast up. China is the only top-ten consuming country not
expected to see an increase in consumption, but it is expected to
remain flat at its current record level.
