chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

The financial year of 2015-16 ended with a drop in overall exports by 15.9 percent from US$310.53 billion in 2014-15 to US$ 261.14 billion in the current fiscal. But the drop in engineering exports outweighed the overall exports drop to the extent of 16.9 percent from US$ 70.7 billion in 2014-15 to US$ 58.8 billion in 2015-2016.

Infact, the engineering goods recorded a sharp dip in exports during March by 11.22% to US$ 5.2 billion. However, the pace of decline in engineering exports decelerated both in February and March compared to the previous months of December and January.

The fall in engineering exports in March 2016 is mainly driven by Non ferrous sectors like Zinc, Nickel, Copper and Aluminium products, Aircraft and Space craft, Iron & Steel.  Cumulatively Ships Boats and Floating Structures is the worst performer after Nickel products during April-March of the current fiscal while Aircrafts & Spacecrafts, Iron and Steel are the other sectors that has witnessed worst decline in exports during the said time period. 

Among the top 25 importers of India`s engineering exports during the April-March 2015-16, only three recorded growth in imports from India. For the rest 22 countries, India saw lower overseas shipment.

 

Yours sincerely,


(Tarvinder Singh Bhasin)
