GEOGRAPHICAL FACTORS FOR THE LOCALIZATION OF COTTON TEXTILE INDUSTRY:

1. CLIMATE:

Climate plays an important role in the location and development of cotton textile industry. For instance, spinning of cotton is not possible in the dry climate because the dry yarn is broken again and again. The broken and knotted yarn would deteriorate the quality of the textile and the manufacturing process would also be late.

2. RAW MATERIAL:


No Industry can be established without availability of raw materials. They should be easily accessible otherwise the expenses incurred on their acquisition become immense.

3. SKILLED LABOUR:

Modern industries need skilled and cheap labor; it is also the necessary condition for the establishment of cotton textile industry. Skilled labor is required in this industry for plucking, cleaning, ginning, spinning, dying and weaving.

4. MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION:


In these days of specialized and diverse trading operations, availability of means of transport (May it be by air, sea or land) is indispensable. These means should be easily and quickly available and should also be cheap to minimize cost of production.

5. MARKETING FACILITIES:
The market demand is also another factor for the localization and development of Cotton Textile Industry therefore; the regions where demand for cotton textile is high, this industry should flourish there.
