Abstract : India is losing export competitiveness in plantation commodities to low cost producers in Asia, Africa and Latin America and also to European countries who export value added products which is posing a threat to plantation sector in India. While the post-liberalisation scenario is seen more favourable for trade in value added food products, India is also facing risks in terms of meeting the required certifications and international food safety standards. The proliferation of regional and free trade agreements has led to changes in the direction of trade in plantation commodity exports causing additional challenges. In this context, the study examines the changing scenario of plantation exports of India, India’s current position in major markets, prices realised for India’s plantation products in the world market and factors influencing the competitiveness of plantation commodities for select major plantation commodities of India.
