The origin of the onion is central Asia and west Pakistan. It probably acquired its name from the city built by ONIA in 1703 B.C. near gulf of Swez. Onion (Allium cepa) also known as bulb onion or common onion, is a vegetable crop that belongs to family Amaryllidaceae. There is a lot of demand of Indian Onion in the world, the country has exported 2182826.23 MT of fresh onion to the world for the worth of Rs. 3467.06 crore / 497.94 USD Millions during the year 2018-19. The export data of onion was collected for the HS code 07031010. The secondary data of Onion export were collected for the period of 1996-97 to 2018-19. For the purpose of comparison, the period of study was divided into two sub periods, first period (from 1996-97 to 2007-08) and second period (2008-09 to 2018-19). To estimate the trade direction data were analyzed by using first order Markov chain. In the present study, Minimum Absolute Deviations (MAD) estimation procedure was employed to estimate the transitional probability. The result revels that, The direction of onion export was changed from period I to period II. As during the first period of study, Nepal was the most stable market followed by Singapore and Bangladesh and Pakistan was most unstable market. The direction of onion was completely changed during second period of study. In this period, Pakistan market was the most stable market for onion export followed by Bangladesh and Nepal.

Keywords: Onion, Direction of trade, Markov chain analysis, Transitional probability
