The Cotton Ginning industry is an important part of the agricultural support services sector and the national cotton market, given that gins must process cotton into its constituent lint and seeds before either can be used. The performance of the Cotton Ginning industry is closely linked to cotton growers, and indirectly to other factors including climatic conditions, growing conditions and fluctuations in global cotton production and prices. This explains the industry's very high level of volatility over the past five years.
This industry consists of establishments mainly engaged in ginning and trading cotton. Ginning separates the cotton fibres (lint) from the cottonseed. Cleaned lint is pressed into bales, which are sold to textile manufacturers.
