Spain: Cotton and Products Annual

Commodities

The slowdown in economic activity, in domestic and export markets, lowered the Spanish textile industry consumption of cotton lint. This encouraged larger exports of cotton lint in MY2018/19 and MY2019/20. The lack of alternative crops available to grow in salty soils conditions keeps Spanish cotton area inelastic. Hence, in MY2020/21, despite weak overall demand, farmers are expected to plant a similar cotton acreage.
