Ten percent increase in India’s overseas container volumes in 2016, appears to be an early indicator of a strengthening economy. From the exports perspective, India has emerged cost competitive in supplying stones to Saudi Arabia, as compared to China.
China witnessed price rises due to up-grade of their stone production units and Spain shifted their sourcing base to India, supporting an increased supply from India. The exports of ceramics and tiles witnessed the highest growth, of 16%, due to strong demand from Saudi Arabia. These factors contributed to the increase in volumes for the Indian shipping industry. Moving to inland rail transportation of export-import containers, the Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) witnessed a growth of 7.8% in overall traffic in the year 2016-17 and 9.2 % specifically in the export and import (EXIM) segment.
