China’s cotton textile industry prosperity index is collected from nearly 500 cotton textile mills nationwide.
It is calculated by weighting multiple major indicators about the national manufacturing PMI and other index formulation methods.
When the index is higher than 50, it means that the cotton textile industry’s current month’s prosperity is better, while if it is below 50, it implies that the month’s prosperity is not as good.
