Dried Cocoons Price Trends

Dried Cocoons Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Dried Cocoons are primarily produced in China, and the Chinese Dried Cocoons industry exhibited totally mixed market sentiments in H1 2023. The prices rose continuously in the first quarter while a sharp decline was observed in the second quarter.

The commencement of the Lunar New Year Holiday season in the first quarter flooded the market with fresh demands, especially since the market was shut previously because of the covid 19 pandemic restrictions. The demand for silk from the international market was also high. Hence, the Dried Cocoons prices rose from around 2185 USD/MT (Spot FD) in January’23 to about 21715 USD/MT (Spot FD) in March’23.

However, as the quarter shifted, the demands took a sudden hit; since silk is not a very summer-friendly fabric, its popularity dipped in the summer months, and the prices started declining because of the overfilled inventories and lowered demands. The average spot prices dropped to around 19847 USD/MT by the end of the second quarter. Overall, mixed market sentiments were observed.

This refers to the cocoons that have been dried to protect cocoon quality and preserve its condition to facilitate the process of reeling. Dried Cocoons can withstand the damage caused by the long duration of storage compared to fresh cocoons. As the pupa's continued metamorphosis could lead to the piercing of shell by a newly emergent moth, the method of drying facilitates the conversion of cocoons to raw silk with ease. China is the leading producer of cocoons and raw silk globally.

In order to produce Dried Cocoons, fresh cocoons are placed in drying machine, where they are heated to remove the water in the cocoon shell. The water quickly evaporates, and heat kills pupa, after which gradual cocoon drying continues till the desired amount of water has evaporated. Various methods of drying include sun drying, steam stifling, and hot air-drying.
