The Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) is a subsidiary of the Stock Exchange of Thailand, offering stock index, interest rate, agriculture, rubber, energy and precious metals futures and options on futures contracts.

The exchange expanded its product offerings with the merger of TFEX and Thailand Agricultural Futures Trading in March 2015 in a government effort to consolidate all futures trading under one exchange.[1]

TFEX was ranked 27th in 2016 in the Futures Industry Association's global list of the top derivatives exchanges measured by volume with 69.5 million contracts traded, up 43.3 percent on 2015's volume of 48.5 million.[2]
