Turkey: Cotton and Products Annual

Commodities

Turkish cotton area and production are forecast to increase about 15 percent in Marketing Year (MY) 2017/18, as good returns and government support encourage production. Due to high world cotton prices, a difficult business and export environment for Turkish textiles, and an increased volume of imported cotton yarn, the sector’s consumption of cotton in Turkey is expected to be lower than normal this year. The United States remains the top supplier of cotton to the Turkish market, and the Turkish textile industry continues to be the one of the leading sectors in the Turkish economy.
