My dear fellow exporters,

After celebrating a year of record-high exports in 2017-18 with a striking 16.8 percent year-on-year growth, engineering exports from India started the new fiscal with a similar tune. April 2018 saw overseas shipment of engineering products from India increased by 18.2 percent over the same month last year, registering a solid comeback after a feeble growth in March 2018 and a decline in Feb 2018. This time, the growth was led by impressive performance of Electrical machinery, Ships & boats and Industrial machinery. Total merchandise exports also bounced back to growth after a slip in March.

Our success story is further enlightened by the continuous rise in share of engineering in India`s total merchandise exports over the years. Now the engineering exporting community brings in around 25 percent of the foreign exchange received through exports of goods instead of a lower 20 percent earned few years back.

Although, rising raw material cost, fund crisis owing to post-GST complications and US investigation on India`s compliance on GSP norms may continue to weigh on exports in the near term, waning of the fear of trade war following the consensus between US and China to drop their respective tariff threats will bring some relief for the manufacturers and exporters across the globe.
