Import Analysis

Import Analysis is the collection and processing of information, including customs, on the import of goods into India for sale. This study shows how much the market depends on foreign goods. The dynamics of imports allow you to track market trends: for example, if the share of imports is constantly decreasing, it may be worth considering developing your own production, rather than relying on foreign supplies. 

If you are looking for new suppliers abroad, this research will not only help you find the right companies but will also show you the market participants working from India. They have already established logistics and have experience of interacting with the Indian market, so it will be easier to establish contact. If you yourself supply similar products, import analysis will identify your direct competitors among foreign companies, and the list of recipient companies in India is a ready list of your potential customers.

Import analysis helps:

  • Assess the market size, taking into account imports
  • Reveal the prospects for import substitution
  • Decide whether it is appropriate to enter into international contracts
  • Identify pricing mechanisms in the international supply market
  • Analyze the factors affecting financial results when importing foreign goods

What is included in the structure of the study

Import analysis includes:

  • Assessment of the volume of imports - in physical and monetary terms 
  • Identification of the main producers and supplying countries
  • Reflection of the dynamics of contract prices and the average value of imports
