Abstract: The Indian derivatives market remains small despite a lengthy history, several committee recommendations, and continuous developments. The Indian derivatives market is dominated by institutional investors, with little participation from individual investors due to a lack of awareness and comprehension of the product. As a result, the objectives of this research are to establish the level of retail investor derivatives market awareness, as well as the relationship between awareness and derivatives market investment intention. A questionnaire-based survey is being conducted with a sample size of 30 respondents. The findings of the survey demonstrate that the majority of respondents have either average or below average derivatives market awareness, and that there is a strong link between awareness and derivatives market investment intention.
