Coir pith, with an export earning of ₹835.26 crore, comprised half of the total export of coir products from the country. Coir fibre, with an export earning of ₹303.69 crore, constituted 18 per cent of the total exports. The value-added items put together constituted 31 per cent of the total exports. Tufted mats topped among the value added products (20 per cent in value).

During the first half of this fiscal, 97 countries imported coir and coir products from India, with the United States topping the importing countries with 30 per cent in value and 17 per cent in quantity. China was the second largest importer with a share of 23 per cent in value and 37 per cent in quantity.
