Abstract:

Cotton is an important fibre crop of India which plays a foremost role in the country's economy by meeting the domestic and export demands. It contributes significantly to both agriculture and industry in terms of farm income, employment and export earnings. India is the world's largest cotton producer and second-largest exporter. However, the present level of exports is not consistent and exhibits high variations in volume and revenue earnings. In this study, the dynamics of changes have been measured in the export of raw cotton from India to different export markets. The compound growth rate, Coefficient of Variance (CV), Cuddy-Della Index and Markov chain analysis were used to analyse the secondary data of raw cotton export for the last 17 years. The result reveals that the export of Indian raw cotton was mainly focused on Bangladesh, Vietnam, Pakistan, China, and Indonesia. Though the export of raw cotton generates better returns, all the countries showed higher instability during the study period. The export of raw cotton from India is highly volatile and needs diversification.
