My dear fellow exporters,

India`s merchandise exports slipped yet again in July 2016 by 6.84 percent, after rising marginally for the first time in eighteen months in June due to decline in shipments of engineering goods and petroleum products. Declining exports as well as in imports narrowed the trade deficit in July to $7.76 billion as against $13.09 in the year-ago period.

Indian engineering exports also witnessed sharp fall in year-on-year growth by 12.11 percent after recording positive growth for two consecutive months of May and June 2016. The negative trend in engineering exports attributed due to slow shipment of ‘ Ship and Boats’, `Aircrafts & Spacecrafts`, ‘Iron & Steel and Products’, ‘Nickel’ and ‘Tin’ Products, IC engines, Two and Three Wheelers,  and Other Construction Machinery others. On the other hand, Railway Transport, Machine Tools, Electrical Machinery and Equipment, Auto Components/Parts, Aluminium Products and others recorded positive year-on-year export growth during July 2016.

Among the top 25 importers of India`s engineering exports, 12 countries recorded positive growth during July 2016 while the remaining 13 countries recorded negative growth in imports from India. Countries like USA, UAE and Singapore are the top three export destinations during July 2016.  The fall in exports to top 25 countries is 13.42 percent which is higher than the fall in total engineering exports at 12.11 percent during July 2016 over July 2015.To regain positive north bound journey in engineering exports, Government intervention is immediately required.

 

Yours sincerely,


(Tarvinder Singh Bhasin)
