The NMCE is India's third-largest commodities exchange offering contracts on oils and oil seeds, coffee, rubber and spices.

The exchange is ranked behind the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX) and the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX).


The National Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd. (NMCE) was launched on November 26, 2002 as India's first online, demutualized commodity exchange by a group of Indian commodity-based corporations and public agencies, and listed its first contracts on 24 commodities in November 2002.[1][2]

As of July 2016, the NMCE listed futures contracts on a total of 13 different commodities, ranging from oils and oil seeds, to rubber, sacking, raw jute, coffee, Isabgul seed, chana, pepper and cardamom.

NMCE is currently India's third-largest commodity and derivatives exchange as measured by average daily turnover, behind market dominator MCX and close rival NCDEX.

Continued recent growth in India's commodity trading means the NMCE's market will soon be joined by a fourth new exchange competitor, currently named the Indian Commodity Exchange (ICEX).[3]
