NICR is dedicated to promoting research and awareness in commodity markets. Ever since the launch in 2003, India’s commodity derivatives market witnessed a reasonable growth. However, it has not yet achieved its full potential due to infrastructure and awareness bottlenecks. Lack of credible research, market information, data and intelligence resulting in poor understanding of the commodity market dynamics has created a major challenge in attaining the fullest potential of the market. It is our endeavour to fill these gaps to create a vibrant commodity derivatives market in India.
