In real terms shipments of these products have touched US $3.02 billion in the period July-September, the first three months of fiscal 2008-09, compared to $2.22 billion in the same period of the previous fiscal.

This growth was led by an increase in shipments from sectors like sports goods, leather, footwear and other products like rice, surgical and engineering goods. The other main traditional export revenue generator; textiles and garments witnessed a marginal dip of 0.97 percent.

Exports of textiles and apparels fell to $3.59 billion from $3.57 billion in the period under review.
