Engineering Exports Jump 70% In March

The monthly growth is the best-ever performance so far

In a major rebound of trade since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, exports of engineering goods from the country recorded an impressive 70.28 percent growth in March. India’s total merchandise exports during this period were $34 billion as compared to $21.49 billion in March 2020 registering a jump of 58.23 percent.

The monthly growth is the best-ever performance so far. The sudden jump in outbound shipments offers hope of sustained growth in the sector in the coming months on the back of vaccine roll-out and containment of virus spread. With major economies of the world including India taking steps to boost demand and enhance business activities, international trade could reach the pre-Covid level sooner than expected.

Engineering items account for about 25 percent of India’s total global exports in the goods sector and are one of the largest foreign exchange-earners.
