Expert Answer:

Following were some of the important reasons why the British came to India:
  • Indian commodities like spices, silk, cotton and sandal were in great demand in the European markets. Trade in these commodities was extremely profitable.
  • The Industrial Revolution had given a major boost to the British manufacture sector and trade. Soon, the domestic markets in Britain were saturised. As a result, the British producers felt the need for oversees markets.
  • The British had seen the prosperity gained by Arab, Italian, Spanish and Dutch traders, gained through their trade contacts with India and China and other parts of the world.
