Abstract: Exports do indicate the comparative and competitive advantages of a country and in some
exceptional cases they also imply the most superior dominance in the level playing ground of
international competitiveness. India has been promoting its exports essentially for foreign
exchange earnings, expansion in the industrial activities, reaping the benefits of markets,
increasing the degree of investment by reallocation of resources, promoting infrastructural
investments through export earnings, pushing the growth process, etc. This study has chosen the
sample period from 1991-92 up to 2016-17 and, for the purpose of comparison and also to
understand some structural shift, the study period is classified into various sub-periods as 1991-
92 to 1997-98, 1998-99 to 2004-05, 2005-06 to 2011-12 and 2012-13 to 2016-17. It was found
that Agriculture sector has wide scope for exports but disappointingly our analysis suggests that
the performance of agriculture exports is not satisfactory. This cannot be misread. Decline in
agriculture exports for some of the year can be partly attributed to domestic demand for agro
products and price disadvantage in the international market. Export of marine and dairy products
could be another big area of advantage. Indian fishery products have an enormous scope to
expand its production and also the market opportunities but logistics and transportation seem to
be the impediments. This issue can be solved by proper trans-national logistic networks and
proper processing of final products. Some of the items need to be improved in terms of its
percentage share in total exports while making proper policies for consistent growth.
