My dear fellow exporters,

After the US, the European Commission (EC) has now initiated safeguard investigation on steel products, including stainless hot-rolled quarto plates, grain-oriented electrical sheet, non-alloy and other alloy merchant bars and light, sections, rebars and many more to ascertain whether import tariffs imposed by the US need to be countered to prevent Asian producers from flooding the European market, a move that may have a significant bearing on India’s steel exports.

The EC’s decision to initiate safeguard action is being seen as a key retaliatory move against US President Donald Trump’s move to impose steep tariffs on steel imports which have adversely hit the European Union (EU). While the US has for the time being suspended the imposition of tariffs, the EC is seen readying its ammunition to combat the fallout of what looks like the beginning of a long-drawn trade war.

India and China along with six other countries criticized the protectionist approach of the EU. Korea, Turkey, Argentina, Egypt, Vietnam and Chile are the other countries that disapproved the EU’s move.

In the engineering sector, India’s exports of iron & steel and products made from these rose 23.5% on year in 2017-18. In case of engineering sector, EU is the largest export destination as a region. Almost 21% of the total engineering exports are made to EU. These protectionist measures adopted by EU will definitely impact Indian engineering exports adversely.

Products with Export Potential for India

Description :

Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles

Rationale

For the last 5 years, Canada import market for the Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles topped the import charts. On the exports front from India, in April-February 2018, overall automobile exports increased by 15.81 percent. Two and three-wheeler segments registered a growth of 20.30 percent and 37.02 percent respectively. Production of vehicles up by 14.41% till Feb`18 in India. Motorcycles production and assemblage is increasing in India to keep pace with the rapidly growing global market. India must take hold of this opportunity and increase the export percentage of Motor Vehicles, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles.

Significant Trends in Trade and Investment

Details of significant trends:

Canada’s total trade balance with India has historically been very low, and the trend has been continuing this year. The total trade balance, including exports and imports, is less than 1% of Canada’s total global trade balance. In January, the trade deficit with the world was $1.9 billion, down from a $3.1 billion deficit in December 2017. Both exports and imports fell, and the trade deficit with the world narrowed in January 2018.

Analysis:

Canadian exports to India decreased in the month of Jan 2018 vis-a-vis Jan 2017. The gap between export and import growth has narrowed compared to previous periods. All top 10 imports from India fall within a range of 4-9% of total imports. This shows that no import category is dominant, and Canada is not dependent on any particular product from India. The top 4 imports are all within the 6-9% share range.

Details of significant trends:

Canada’s total Exports to the world decreased 2.1% to $45.8 billion in January. Decreases were observed in 7 of 11 sectors. Primarily on fewer exports of passenger cars and light trucks. After three consecutive monthly increases, exports were down 2.1% in January, led by motor vehicles and parts, (-5.7%), aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts (-17.4%) and forestry products and building and packaging materials (-6.6%). Partially offsetting these declines in January were exports of energy products (+2.9%), up for the sixth consecutive month. In January 2018, exports were down 1.5%, compared to January 2017.

Analysis:

Due to Alberta’s oil sands, Mineral fuels are Canada’s largest export to the world, along with the highest growth rate. Manufactured goods, such as vehicles, nuclear reactors, machinery, make up a significant share of Canada’s world exports and reflects Canada’s standing as a G7 country.). The decline in consumer goods exports was also widespread, as exports of food products, pharmaceuticals, and household goods were all lower in January. Cereal marked their entry with Jan exports.

Details of significant trends:

Canada’s Imports from the world also Imports decreased 4.3%, to $47.7 billion in January. Decreases were observed all commodity sectors. Mainly on lower imports of industrial machinery, equipment and parts. Following a record high in December, imports were down 4.3% in January. Imports of industrial machinery, equipment and parts (-11.3%), consumer goods (-4.6%), as well as electronic and electrical equipment and parts (-6.3%) were the main contributors to the decline in January. In January 2018, imports were up 2.0% compared to January 2017.

Analysis:

Unlike prior periods, Pharmaceutical products came down to be the second highest Indian export product with a growth rate (50.70%), Articles of Iron or Steel witnessed the highest growth of (104.60%). While Nuclear Reactors and Mechanical Appliances grew to (11.50%) in Jan 2018. Pearls, Precious Stones or Metals, Coins and Jewellery, Nuclear Reactors, Boilers, Machinery and Mechanical Appliances, Organic Chemicals (Including Vitamins, Alkaloids and Antibiotics) and Textile exports from India continue to be the largest share of exports.

Details of significant trends:

With respect to top competitors of India’s top 5 exports to Canada, the US consistently features as a top 5 competitor in each of the five export categories. China and Germany feature in 3 categories, and Mexico, Switzerland, Ireland in two. India faces very tough competition from these largest trading partners of Canada. Jan 2018 also showed some new competitors like: France (incl. Monaco, French Antilles) Italy (incl. Vatican City State), Egypt, Argentina, Dominican Republic and Taiwan.

Analysis:

Imports from the United States were also down, falling 1.8% to $30.9 billion, primarily attributable to lower imports of logging, mining and construction machinery and equipment. Lower imports from China (cell phones), and the Netherlands (refined petroleum products) were largely responsible for the contraction.

CDPQ eyes stake in Indian clean energy space

Canada’s second largest pension fund Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (CDPQ) is keen to acquire a stake in CLP India Ltd, one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian power sector. CDPQ’s interest in the Indian subsidiary of Hong Kong Stock Exchange-listed CLP Holdings comes in the backdrop of a few Indian clean energy firms offering scale. CDPQ has been investing in sectors like power, infrastructure, logistics and financial services in India.
