The presence of risk is a defining feature of most financial and commodity markets. The
dynamics of demand and supply are the forces that, over the course of time, are responsible
for causing price fluctuations in a variety of goods, including agricultural and nonagricultural products. The amount of international trade and business has significantly
increased as a result of the globalisation and liberalisation wave that has been sweeping the
globe over the course of the last two decades. Due to the quick and unpredictable changes in
interest rates, exchange rates, and price of financial assets as a result of this, the business
world is now exposed to an uncontrollable amount of financial risk. Given the current climate
of extreme uncertainty in the business world, risk management is more crucial than ever. An
impressive feat of financial engineering was the creation of the derivatives market. Risk
associated with the underlying asset's fluctuating value was mitigated in a way that was both
cost-effective and time-efficient. It has been relatively recent for India to experience the
emergence and growth of a derivatives market. The derivatives market has grown
exponentially in terms of both the number of contracts traded and the volume of contracts
since it first opened in June of 2000. From Rs. 2365 crore in the previous fiscal year, 2000-
2001, the market's revenue increased to Rs. 110,104,82.20 crore in 2008-2009. In just eight
years, India's derivatives market has grown to become one of the world's largest. This rapid
expansion has allowed it to surpass the cash segment in terms of both turnover and the
number of contracts traded. This research looks at the development of derivative trading, the
nature of derivative products, the history of related policies and regulations, the current state
of the derivatives market in India, and its potential in the years to come. Some of the space is
also devoted to a discussion of the global derivatives markets and how they stack up against
India's derivatives market.
