India is among the apex producers of a number of commodities and has a long history of trading in commodity derivatives. The Indian commodity futures landscape has been evolving and the national level multi–commodity futures exchanges have made a big headway since their inception. This sector will have new products, new services and new market participants making it a steady growth.


Commodity derivatives have a significant role in the price risk management process especially in case of India being an agricultural dominated economy. The Indian commodity derivatives market has already unleashed forces to bring about institutional changes in marketing practices but it is imperative to bring the sizeable section of the population, rendered vulnerable by price volatility of commodities, under the umbrella of benefits of the market. Therefore, regulatory framework needs to permit diverse stakeholder groups to participate in commodities derivatives market to attain its full potential in terms of growth and inclusiveness. Improvement and upgrading of support services such as warehousing infrastructure, testing facilities, demat trading, grading system, and credit finance are integral to the governance holistic development of the commodity market. Reduction in cost by abolishing CTT and other administrative costs may be ideal for bringing back the volumes in this market.


Therefore, in order to overcome the current shortcomings in the commodity derivatives market and to enable the Indian economy to emerge as a leading and vibrant commodity trading market, ASSOCHAM is organizing the “17th Commodity Derivatives Market Summit - Efficient Governance to Enhance Market Participants” at    9:30 a.m. on November 29, 2019 at Hotel Taj Mahal, 1 Mansingh Road, New Delhi. There will be a large participation by the stakeholders including the policy makers, National and International Commodity Exchanges, trading houses and Investors to name a few.
