Egypt’s economy: A snapshot

Egypt undertook exchange rate, monetary and fiscal measures in response to adverse global developments (including soaring prices, tightening financial conditions and fading demand), aggravated by the war in Ukraine. In 2021/22, real GDP growth increased to an estimated 6.6%, driven by gas extractives, communications, agriculture, and construction. But manufacturing performed below its potential. On the demand side, growth was driven by household consumption and investment.

African Economic Outlook 2023 expects Egypt's GDP growth rate at 4.8 percent for FY 2023-24.

India and Egypt’s Bilateral Trade

Egypt has been traditionally one of India’s most important trading partners in the African continent. India’s engineering exports to Egypt reached US$ 1.4 billion in 2021-22, registering a growth of more than 94% viz-a-viz 2020-21. However India’s engineering exports to Egypt declined to US$ 1.0 billion in 2022-23. The main items of export includes iron & steel, motor vehicles/cars, auto components/parts, industrial machinery for dairy, agriculture, food processing, textiles, paper, chemicals, etc. and IC engines and parts.

Egypt’s Machine Tools & Cutting Tools industry: Prospects for India

By the year 2025, Egypt will be a leading industrializing nation in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region in terms of industrial performance as well as a main export hub for medium-technology manufactured products. Egypt imports 95% of its machine and industrial tools and only 5% of demand is met by local manufacturers. The Machine and Industrial tools market in Egypt is expected to increase in the coming years. The industrial expansion in Egypt will ensure the country remains the most attractive market for the machine tools and industrial tools in the Middle East and Africa. Egypt is the largest consumer of machine and industrial tools in the region relying heavily on imports.

Thus India has tremendous potential to expand and cater to the Egyptian market. Several bilateral treaties and MoUs which are in place could enhance India’s export possibilities in Egypt.
