World demand and supply trends

Australian sheep flock and wool production

Implications and price projections


World demand and supply trends

World demand and supply trends

World wool consumption has declined

But sheep numbers and wool production also declined

More sheep meat production led to lower supplies of fine wool

A few observations

A few observations

China’s wool demand is projected to rise as growth in demand for textiles & clothing continues

Competition from other low cost countries will increase over time

China needs to produce high-quality woollen textiles & clothing to compete

To achieve that China will have to import more fine wool

Implications for the future

Implications for the future

Australia will be a major world supplier of fine wool

Australian sheep flock will rebuild only gradually

Fine wool prices to be supported by limited supply


Summary of abare s wool outlook for 2010 11

Summary of ABARE’s wool outlook for 2010-11

EMI to average 920 c/kg clean

Export volume to fall 4% to 385 kt greasy equivalent

Export value: $2.06 billion

Sheep flock to increase gradually from 2011-12
