Japanese-Indian relations is supported by historic, political, and cultural affiliation, which usually led towards positive economic relations. Although the Japanese-Indian relationship is a few centuries old, surprisingly, the statistics of trade hardly exhibit any mentionable growth, except the recent upward trend in exports to Japan. In fact, India almost failed to capture the near home market even with the growth (1% market share).
