Ludhiana has witnessed limited but consistent demand, with cotton yarn prices hovering at previous levels. “Spinning mills preferred to hold their stock instead of selling at lower prices, as they were bullish on yarn trade because of strong demand from the export market,” a trader from Ludhiana market told Fibre2Fashion.
North India’s cotton yarn market has seen a slight improvement in sentiments today due to higher buying in anticipation of a price rise. However, cotton yarn prices in Ludhiana and Delhi remained steady. Buyers are interested in new deals as they expect an increase in prices by spinners, and mills are not keen to sell their stocks at lower prices.

Panipat’s recycled yarn market has registered a steady trend in recycled yarn prices, but cotton comber prices have further increased by ₹4-5 per kg due to limited supply and higher consumption.
