There is a great global slow down due to various factors that lead to declining of commodity prices globally. This also impacted  high demand spices from India. Chilli, Jeera ( which is also called cumin seeds ) & turmeric exporters in India got affected in the concurrent years.

DGCIS – Directorate General of Commercial Intelligence and Statistics data reported that growth of exports went to 25% in 2011-12 (8,58,200 tonnes of spices – highest in the last five years (2010-2015)) but whereas exporters growth is just 3% in 2014-15. It also reported spices exports from India increased to 9,23,271 tonnes by surging 34 percent in 2014-2015 comparing to 6,88,394 tonnes in 2010-2011.

Exporters in India believe that spices like Chilli, Jeera & turmeric exports would marginally increase and will not attain any noticeable growth due to decline of exports in India to a 14th-month straight fall of 13.6% in Jan 2016

Good demand for chilli, Jeera & turmeric exports in India is fluctuating as the prices fluctuate creating an impact on the other spices. Chilli & turmeric exporters in India are so positive about the upcoming year as the domestic market responds with reasonable price that could boost chilli & turmeric exports.

Mr. Bhaskar Shah – Vice- Chairman of Spice Board and chairman of Indian Spice & Foodstuff Exporters Association (ISFEA) said that spices exports from India might cross 9,50,000 tonnes in the year 2015-2016.
