Economic scenario of UAE

United Arab Emirates is the third largest economy of the Middle East and one of the wealthiest countries in the region on a per capita basis. It continues to be the region’s trade, finance and travel hub due to their tremendous economic diversifications while reducing dependency on petroleum. While Economic growth in 2023 is expected to remain subdued due to the overall decline in global demand. However the non-oil sector as mentioned above is ready to grow further due to sustained growth in various sectors including construction. Growth will be further strengthened by the implementation of government’s reform agenda and CBUAE’s efforts to promote stability, efficiency, and resilience of the financial system.

India & UAE: Bilateral Trade

India is one of the largest trade partner for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the second largest supplier to UAE after China. Bilateral trade reached US$ 77.63 billion in 2022-23 from around 60 billion in 2018-19, however mainly due to rise in imports, especially that of oil. The India-UAE Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) is estimated to take bilateral trade between India and the UAE to US$100 billion by 2030.

Engineering trade

In engineering, UAE remains among the top three export destination for Indian engineering products with a share of around 5 percent in India’s global engineering exports. India’s engineering exports top UAE has increased over the years from US$ 4 billion in 2016-17 to US$ 5 billion in 2022-23, registering a CAGR of 3.4%.In 2022-23, India’s total medical and scientific instrument exports to UAE stood at USD 69.75 million which is 33% higher than that of 2021-22.

Opportunity for Indian Engineering Industry

Development of a world class healthcare system is of critical importance and is one of the six pillars of the UAE’s national agenda. As the country faces growing urban and working population, the healthcare sector also need to evolve rapidly to cater to the ever changing needs of the nation. The country also aims to become the medical tourism hub of the Middle East and also aims to reduce the number of patients that travel abroad for critical treatment. Procurement of world class medical devices is an important part of the country’s plan to develop its medical infrastructure. Given India’s growing medical devices industry, UAE can be a very important destination for Indian exporters. The focus product of the event is medical equipment. India, as one of the largest suppliers of engineering to UAE, definitely have good opportunities to exploit the market of UAE especially after the trade pact in place and Arab Health will be a good platform for this.
