My dear fellow exporters,

India`s engineering exports followed the broader merchandise export to register 11.3 percent growth in fiscal 2016-17 as against 17.2 percent decline in the previous fiscal. Significant growth in the last two months of the said fiscal aided the growth. Substantial growth in the exports was observed in case of iron and steel, aluminium and led products, ships, boats and floating structures, electrical machinery, railway transport and office equipments.

EU ranked as the region with the highest (21 percent) share in India`s global engineering exports during fiscal 2016-17 followed by ASEAN+2 (16 percent) and North America (15 percent). Engineering exports to EU, ASEAN+2 and CIS region recorded noteworthy positive growth but exports to Africa conceded double-digit decline during fiscal 2016-17.

Share of India`s engineering exports to total merchandise exports also improved to 23.75 percent in 2016-17 from 22.34 percent in 2015-16.
