  • China’s share in India’s total imports has reduced in the current year to about 36% during Q1FY16 from 44% in FY 15
  • Yuan devaluation has exacerbated the price differential between Indian made and Chinese landed tyres.
  • India’s trade deficit with China has widened from USD 1.03 billion in FY10 to USD 2.83 billion in FY15
  • FY15, India imported auto components worth USD 3.17 billion from China, as against USD 344 million exports to China
  • Imports from China are priced-on an average-20%-25% cheaper than Indian components, posing a serious threat to domestic auto ancillaries
  • The current Yuan devaluation could lead to a product specific relook at these cost dynamics to some extent
  • The continued devaluation of Yuan could lead to global OEMs continue using China as a sourcing point for India, instead of developing local Indian suppliers
