In the present study the statistical analysis of present status of global area, production, growth rates of global export and import of raw silk has been studied. For the present study to estimate the growth rates and other statistics, all India and country wise global secondary data of area, production and productivity of raw silk, export and import data at global level has been obtained from official sources. The statistical analysis of data indicated that the production of raw silk of China is with nearly 80% of the total production of raw silk in the world. The India stands second and its contribution is 14.91 per cent of the total production of raw silk. Among the Asian countries, China and India are larger silk producer countries. Further, it is observed from the analysis that there is increase in export earnings to India from year 1998-99 to year 2006-07 and thereafter there is decreasing trend in export earnings of raw silk goods. From C.V.(%) it is observed that there is some variation in export earnings of silk goods in India. The growth rate analysis revealed that during 1997-98 to 2011-12, the growth rate of total silk production of China and India was increased significantly by 6.90% and 2.60% respectively. During the same period the growth rate of total silk production of Japan, Brazil, Korea significantly decreased by 26.00%, 7.20% and 2.10% respectively. The growth rate of import of raw silk by our country increased significantly by 5.50 percent whereas the value paid for import significantly increased by 9.50 percent at current rates.
