My dear fellow exporters,

The government of India has come up the Union Budget for fiscal 2019-20 in the lower house of parliament on 5th July 2019 after the new government was formed. This is the first time a lady has presented the budget. It was also the first full budget of the second phase of the NDA government with Mr. Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister. A lot of expectations therefore were raised on the budget and it was indeed a growth-oriented and balanced one where on one side, emphasize was given on making India a 5 Trillion Dollar economy while fiscal discipline was also maintained prudently on the other. While an investment-driven growth was kept on focus by targeting Rupees 100 lakh crore on infrastructure spending, boost in rural consumption was also taken care of at the same time.

Two highest employment generating sectors of the Indian economy, Agriculture and Micro Small and Medium Industries (MSMEs) were given due importance. In the firm sector, there was substantial increase in budgetary allocation with a goal of doubling farmer’s income in the next five years. MSME was also facilitated with several new announcements like 2 percent interest subvention to all GST registered MSMEs in the current year on all fresh and incremental loans, faster credit disbursement, opening of new payment portal for MSMEs to eliminate delay in government payments and pension scheme for small retailers. In addition, special emphasis on Start-ups would also help MSME sector to grow.

In the engineering sector, measures were proposed to give the unique ‘Make in India’ initiative a further boost. In order to encourage domestic production, customs duties on selected products like PVC, tiles, auto parts, marble slabs, optical fibre cable, etc. were increased while defence equipment not manufactured in India exempted from basic customs duty. GST on Electric Vehicles was lowered by 7 percent in a move towards greener India.

EEPC India welcomed the budget considering it a visionary one. It drafted a well decorated roadmap for balanced growth of the Indian economy over the medium term. Stress on simplification of procedure, incentivizing performance and ensuring best use of technology will surely help India to achieve the desired level of growth on a sustained basis.

Products with Export Potential for India

The products which Canada imports from other countries and India can seize the opportunity.

Description : Electrical or Electronic Machinery and Equipment

Rationale : The total market size of electrical machinery in India is anticipated to reach US$ 100 billion by 2022 from US$ 24 billion in 2013. The electrical machinery sector consists of generation, transmission and distribution machinery. In order to become a global force, Indian machinery sector needs to understand these changes and evolve to serve the user industries with the next generation products through integration of equipment with information technology like autonomous haulage or unmanned vehicles equipped with GPS, CCTV cameras, inertial guidance systems, and leverage dispatch route planning and guidance software for functioning.

Description : Optical, Medical, Photographic, Scientific and, Technical Instrumentation

Rationale : One of the potential items of India’s exports to Canada must include Optical, Medical, Photographic, Scientific and Technical Instrumentation.US, china and Mexico are the top markets for the import of this HS 2 category. India is not in the top ten. India’s has competitive disadvantages in the Optical, Medical, Photographic, Scientific and Technical Instrumentation market, but it also represents key opportunities for India to improve its position in the global economy through focused innovations.

Description : Furniture and Stuffed Furnishings, Lamps and illuminated Signs, Prefabricated Buildings

Rationale : Analysts forecast the global furniture market to grow at a CAGR of 4.27% during the period 2017-2021. China and U.S have been the top exporters of Furniture. Consumers globally are spending more on home decor and furniture. This drives the global furniture market. A large part of this growth is expected to come from the rapidly growing consumer markets of Asia, implying significant potential for growth in the Indian furniture sector.

Significant Trends in Trade and Investment

Details of significant trends : Canada’s total trade with India increased by 12.89% viz-a-viz January-April 2018. Canadian exports to India and imports from India both increased, but not substantially.

Analysis : The total trade with India from Jan-Apr 2018 was $2.3 billion USD. However, for Jan- Apr 2019, the total trade is $2.6 billion USD. Exports were high to India in Apr 2019 in comparison to Apr 2018.

Globally, Canada`s exports rose 1.3% in April reaching a total value of $50.7 billion, this coincides with a recent increase in global demand for gold. In real (or volume) terms, exports were up 2.0%. Export gains in April were largely driven by precious metals. Precious metals exports – which are typically volatile from one month to the next – jumped by more than 38% in April.

Exports of farm, fishing and intermediate food products (+5.1%) also contributed to the increase, mainly on higher exports of wheat (+21.7%). The increase was partially offset by lower exports of canola (-14.7%), for which there were no shipments to China in April. For the year 2018, 47.5% of Canadian exports of canola were destined for that country.

Details of significant trends : India stayed at 12th position as the largest market for Canadian Imports year to date. For Jan- Apr 2019, Canada’s total imports from India increased by 1.36% in comparison to Jan- Apr 2018.

Analysis : The total import figure of Jan-Apr 2019 is $1.4 billion USD. However, for Jan- Apr 2018 the figure was $1.3 billion USD. The Top products of import from India are Nuclear Reactors, Boilers, Articles of Iron or Steel, Pharmaceutical Products, Organic Chemicals (Including Vitamins, Alkaloids and Antibiotics), Machinery and Mechanical Appliances, Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles.

Details of significant trends : Overall Canadian global imports decreased 1.4%, mostly on lower imports of aircraft. As a result, Canada`s merchandise trade deficit with the world narrowed from $2.3 billion in March to $966 million in April, the lowest deficit since October 2018.

Analysis : Total imports were down 1.4% in April to $51.7 billion. Imports decreased in 6 of 11 sections, with aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts contributing the most to the decline. The decline in imports into Canada was largely concentrated in finished industrial and consumer goods.

After decreasing 15.6% in March, imports of aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts declined 23.6% in April to $1.9 billion. Following a record $1.2 billion in February, imports of aircraft were down sharply in March (50.7%) and continued to decline in April (-82.7%), mainly due to lower deliveries of airliners from the United States. Canadians bought more goods from the United States in April; imports from that country were up 1.9 per cent compared to March ($641 million). However, they bought less from nearly everywhere else. After spiking in March, imports from China fell back significantly in April, dropping by $301 million (7.0 per cent). There were also notable declines in imports from Mexico, Japan, Norway and several countries in the EU.

Details of significant trends : India fell to 12th position as the largest market for Canadian exports year to date. The total exports increased by meagre 3.22%% in Apr 2019 viz-a-viz 2018.

Analysis : The total export figure for Jan-Apr 2019 was $1.1 billion USD. However, for Jan- Apr 2018 the figure was $918 million USD. The Top products of export from Canada to India were: Mineral Fuels, Mineral Oils, Bituminous Substances and Mineral Waxes, Ores, Slag and Ash, Fertilizers, Pearls, Precious Stones or Metals, Coins and Jewelry, Pulp of Wood and The Like; Waste and Scrap of Paper or Paperboard. The exports in the following categories saw remarkable increase:

Aircrafts and Spacecrafts (3,265.50%), Edible Vegetables and Certain Roots and Tubers (424.40%).

Details of significant trends : Canada`s global exports grew by 1.3% in April, reaching a total value of $50.7 billion. Canadian exports have almost fully recovered from their decline in the second half of 2018.

Analysis : Globally, a spike in precious metals deliveries drove exports higher in April. With exports up three times in the past four months, Canada has almost fully recovered the ground lost in the final quarter of 2018. Canada’s export gains in April were heavily concentrated in three markets: Hong Kong, the United States and China.
