Industry body identifies 75 potential export products and markets to increase India’s merchandise exports to USD 750 billion by 2027. These products have been mapped according to the production possibilities and potential of the states, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.

The study report on Mapping 75 potential products in the states has been released in the States’ Policy Conclave 2022 organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, here today in the Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi.

Karnataka holds potential in 27 products, Maharashtra (22 products), Tamil Nadu (22 products), Gujarat (22 products) and Andhra Pradesh (13 products) Haryana (13 products), Telangana (8 product), Madhya Pradesh (8 products), Rajasthan (7 products) and are collectively contributing more than 75% share in India’s total exports, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.

Gujarat and Maharashtra are the leading exporting states in the country. In 2020-21, these two states collectively contributed around 47 percent in total exports of India followed by Tamil Nadu (8.3%), Karnataka (6.1%), Uttar Pradesh (5%) and Andhra Pradesh (4.6%) among others, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.

Exports growth of the leading export states was tremendous in 2021-22, Gujarat (110%), Karnataka (72%), Odisha (68%), West Bengal (56%), and Rajasthan (46%). While Delhi (9%), Andhra Pradesh (15%), Madhya Pradesh (21%), Maharashtra (26%) and Telangana (27%) experienced significant growth, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.

Going ahead, synchronisation of policies between centre and state Government would go a long way to strengthen exports, build up the confidence to compete in the international markets, said Mr Saket Dalmia.


Decriminalisation of the minor offences along with a robust National Single Window System will enhance ease of Doing Business and ease of exports in the country,said Mr. Saket Dalmia.


There is a need to reduce the cost of doing business with the joint efforts of the centre and state Governments such as providing land at rational prices, rationalization of the logistics costs, rationalization of the costs of energy, costs of funds and costs of the compliances, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.


Rationalization of the Cost of doing business would create a conducive business environment and enhance the sentiments of the producers and scale up the production possibilities in the factories, said Mr. Saket Dalmia.
