Bilateral Trade between India and USA

The rapidly expanding trade and commercial linkages form an important component of the multi-faceted partnership between India and the United States. The U.S. is India’s topmost trading partner both in terms of merchandised goods and engineering goods as well during 2022 (Trade Map). The two countries have a total bilateral trade of around US$ 129.41 billion during 2022-23 growing by over 8.3% and around US$ 69.35 billion during the current fiscal of April-Oct 2023-24.

Engineering trade accounts for around 25% of bilateral merchandise trade between India and USA. India’s engineering exports to USA witnessed a growth of 6.8% during 2022-23 compared to same period last year. Although engineering exports registered a negative growth during the current fiscal April-Oct 2023-24 to the extent of 11% reaching US$ 10.14 billion compared to US$ 11.37 billion during same period last fiscal. USA has been consistently the topmost exporting destination for India's engineering products for the last five years. On the other hand, North America region ranks as the topmost destination for shipment of engineering products from India during April-Oct 2023-24 with a share of 20.5% percent of total engineering exports. Major engineering products exported to USA includes products of iron and steel, electronic machinery and equipment, auto components/parts, industrial machinery for diary, aluminium and products, iron and steel and products etc.

Given the profile of fasteners, India globally exports more than 28% of fastener to USA, 7.7% to UK, 6.2% to Germany, 5.4% to UAE, 5% to Netherlands and remaining 48% to other countries during 2022 (Trade Map). While India ranks as the 9th destination in terms of USA’s global import of fasteners and the top importers being Taiwan (17.7%) and China (29.2%) constituting more than 47% share of USA imports, while Mexico constituting a share of 12.2%, Japan constituting 5.1% and Canada constituting 4.9% share respectively during 2022.

Opportunity for Indian Exporters in USA

Engineering products like Electrical Machinery and Equipment, Industrial Machinery, Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metal Products, Automobile and auto components are the major product groups in the global import basket of USA. Therefore, Indian engineering producers and traders have ample scope to explore the USA market as India exports products of all these segments in a good quantity. Moreover, USA is the topmost destination for Indian engineering products. With the advent of International Fasteners Expo 2024 (9th-11th September 2024), one of the largest B2B expo for fasteners, tooling, and machinery in North America, various manufacturers, distributors of the engineering fraternity across the globe are going to showcase their products maintaining proper build-in relationship and networking, identifying existing and new products and suppliers.
