A USDA briefing highlights declining EU cotton consumption, which has fallen 21% in the past ten years. EU cotton imports over the same period have risen slightly (mainly from Central Asia) while EU exports to non-EU countries have risen faster than EU cotton production. However the decline in EU cotton consumption has actually been less than in other major OECD markets, with US consumption declining 26% and Japanese consumption down 57%. The report provides access to various statistics on the cotton sector.
