My dear fellow exporters,

US President has announced that America would withdraw from the landmark 2015 accord to curb Iran’s nuclear programme and reinstate financial sanctions on the latter. US President’s decision to re-impose economic sanctions on Iran has posed a serious concern for Indian exporters. In case of engineering, Iran is an attractive market and any problem in the trading environment would adversely impact the exporting community.

Iran is India’s third largest oil supplier behind Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The bilateral trade between India and Iran has increased to $ 12.9 billion in 2016-17 from $9 billion in the previous fiscal.

A majority of the trade happens through UAE since past two decades. Traders generally pay in the Emirates’ currency, the dirham. The latest set of sanctions have thrown confusion over whether the UAE, a close US ally, would continue to allow the earlier system.

The Indian government is banking on its long economic and political partnership with Iran to start talks on establishing a rupee-based trade mechanism, similar to an earlier one between both nations. This is thought to be a way to address the on the uncertainty over how crude oil import from Iran will be paid for if the current currency of choice, the euro, is also hit by the recent sanctions. 

We hope that the Government would successfully work out an alternative in order to ensure seamless trade between India and Iran.

Products with Export Potential for India

Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles - 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 February, the trade deficit with the world was $2.7 billion, widening from a $1.9 billion deficit in January 2018. Imports rose 1.9%, mainly due to higher imports of energy products. Exports increased 0.4%, primarily on higher exports of passenger cars and light trucks. In real (or in volume) terms, imports rose 1.9% and exports were up 0.6%.

Analysis - Canadian exports to India decreased in the month of Feb 2018 vis-a-vis Feb 2017. The gap between export and import growth has narrowed compared to previous periods. The top import from India was of HS code 87 - Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles at 15.88 % clearly a dominant product. Remaining top 7 imports from India fall within a range of 4-9% of total imports.

Details of significant trends - Total exports edged up 0.4% to $45.9 billion in February, with increases in exports of motor vehicles and parts, and aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts. These were largely offset by lower exports of farm, fishing and intermediate food products, and of metal and non-metallic mineral products. Year over year, total exports were up 1.5%. Exports excluding energy products were up 0.7%.

Analysis - Exports of motor vehicles and parts, up 5.0% to $7.5 billion, led the increase in February, mostly on higher exports of passenger cars and light trucks (+6.7%). This marks a partial recovery after atypical plant closures in the automotive industry in January. Exports of aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts also contributed to the overall increase, up 19.6% to $1.7 billion, rebounding from a decline of 21.9% in January. Partially offsetting the overall increase were lower exports of farm, fishing and intermediate food products, down 17.2% to $2.4 billion, the largest decline on record. Exports of wheat (-41.6%) and canola (-40.1%) were responsible for the drop in the section. These decreases coincided with rail transportation issues in Western Canada in February. Exports of metal and non-metallic mineral products also fell sharply in February, down 7.2% to $5.2 billion.

Details of significant trends - Following a 4.3% decline in January, total imports were up 1.9% in February to $48.6 billion, with increases in 8 of 11 sections. Higher imports of energy products and of motor vehicles and parts were partially offset by lower imports of gold. Year over year, total imports increased 3.5%.

Analysis - Unlike prior periods, Articles of Iron or Steel came down to be the second highest Indian export product with a growth rate (7.95%), Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles witnessed the highest growth of (15.88%). While Mineral Fuels, Mineral Oils, Bituminous Substances and Mineral Waxes grew to (6.50%) in Feb 2018. Pharmaceutical Products, 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 imports. 

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. Feb 2018 also showed some new competitors like: France (incl. Monaco, French Antilles) Italy (incl. Vatican City State), Japan, Argentina, Dominican Republic, Egypt and Taiwan.

Analysis - Following two consecutive monthly decreases, trade with the United States rose in February. Imports from the United States were up 3.3% to $32.1 billion, mostly on higher imports of aircraft. Exports to the United States increased 1.9% to $34.6 billion, mainly on higher exports of passenger cars and light trucks. As a result, Canada`s trade surplus with the United States narrowed from $2.9 billion in January to $2.6 billion in February. Exports to countries other than the United States fell 4.2% to $11.3 billion, mainly on lower exports to the United Kingdom (unwrought gold). Imports from countries other than the United States also declined, down 0.6% to $16.6 billion. Lower imports of gold from the Dominican Republic and Argentina were partially offset by higher imports of passenger cars and light trucks from India and Mexico. As a result, Canada`s merchandise trade deficit with countries other than the United States widened from $4.9 billion in January to $5.3 billion in February.

Tata Steel wary of tariffs raising costs
Bangkok Post 28.04.2018

SET-listed Tata Steel Thailand Plc, the local unit of India`s largest steelmaker, is concerned that the risk of US measures imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports will increase prices for the raw materials of steel worldwide. All upstream materials prices are expected to rise, such as iron ore, ferrous scrap, coking coal and graphite electrodes. For example, the price of scrap metal services made from ferrous scrap is being monitored after rising to US$350 a tonne on the global market. Rajiv Mangal, Tata Steel Thailand`s chief executive, said steel producers in many countries are monitoring the effect of the US measures because they expect raw material prices to increase, affecting supply and demand for steel and aluminium worldwide. "Tata forecasts the US will still have steel demand exceeding its supply, even with the tariffs," he said. The US placed a 25% tariff on steel imports and 10% tariff on aluminium imports.
