Provides a structured application of major concepts and methodologies in trade analytics, geared towards identification of export markets and products as well as their competitiveness. Designed as a practical guide for management graduates, researchers, corporate executives and policy-makers, India's Trade Analytics familiarizes the readers with various technical approaches to the analysis of international trade flows, market identification and competitiveness measurement procedures. The book also addresses emerging issues in international trade patterns along with the description of standard trade indices and trade modelling techniques. It aims to enable the readers to adopt modelling and analytical tools as relevant to their research problem. The chapters are closely woven with India's trade issues at both macro and micro levels. While the macro aspects include the analysis at the country level (i.e., overall trade indices for India involving its trade partners), the product-specific analysis (e.g., competitiveness for individual export items from India at disaggregated level) is conducted in the micro discussions. Key Features: * Critical analysis of data drawn from important multilateral trade databases. * Application of crucial methodologies like ex post and ex ante analyses, and partial and general equilibrium models, along with in-depth interpretation of the derived output (e.g., competitiveness analysis, effect of tariff reform) for partner markets. * Discussion on identifying the non-tariff barriers (NTBs). * Explains the role of trade facilitation measures and trade costs in international business.
