  • Improvement seen in Export Outlook in FICCI Q1 Survey

FICCI's Quarterly survey on Manufacturing re-iterates a positive outlook for exports with 44% of the participants expecting a rise in exports for Q-1 2018-19.

The sentiments for the manufacturing sector in Q-1 (April-June 2018-19) remains positive, though the proportion of respondents reporting higher output growth during the April - June 2018 quarter has decreased to 49% from 55% in January-March 2018, maintaining the general trend witnessed in the previous years.

However, going ahead, high growth is expected in Automotive, Capital Goods, Metals and Metal Products and Electronics & Electricals. Moderate growth is expected in Textiles, FMCG, Cement and Ceramics, Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals, Leather & Footwear and Textiles Machinery in Q-1 2018-19 whereas low growth is expected in Paper Products.
