Cotton Farming in the US
The Cotton Farming industry has experienced extremely volatile operating conditions over the five years to 2019. Due to large-scale fluctuations in demand and prices, industry profit has remained volatile. Profit for cotton farmers depends on a variety of factors, but the world price of cotton plays a key role in determining the industry's bottom line. Over the five years to 2024, the industry is expected to stagnate. Additionally, the number of companies in the industry is expected to plummet as low subsidies drive cotton farms to consolidate.
Farms in this industry primarily grow cotton, which is typically used in textile manufacturing, while the plant’s cottonseed is exploited for its oil and used in some livestock feeds. At least half of all cotton produced domestically is exported to overseas textile producers.
