Argentine wool production

Argentina is the main wool producer in South America, with a large proportion of merino wool. As such it is useful to understand what is happening in terms of production in the South American region since supply (under supply) has become an issue in the greasy wool market. This article draws heavily on the statistics published by the Argentine Wool Federation (FLA) to look at the Argentine clip in comparison to the Australian wool clip.

Merino wool price cycle

“Price cycle” can be a loaded concept implying a regular change in price up and down. Agriculture operates on cycles and so the experience of seasonal cycles is a good analogy to use. The average seasonal pattern is the base for making many farming decisions, but the details vary from year to year and occasionally the cycle fails. This principle applies to commodity price cycles as well. This article looks at the current Merino price cycle and how it stacks up against the average cycle.

World wool production

The wool market is an international market in terms of where the raw material is produced, where it is processed and where it is consumed. Australia has been the dominant Merino wool producer for some time, which tends to make us lazy in doing the work to understand the full supply picture for Merino wool. Fortunately, the IWTO collates national data which is used in this article to briefly look at world wool production.
