Chinese Shipbuilding Off The Bottom, Tough 2018 Ahead

Chinese shipbuilding is ending the year on a rising note, with new orders of 3.18 million dryweight tons (mdwt), representing a 59% sequential rise in new orders in the past three months. The export order book in particular has increased for four straight months, though is still 52% below its peak. Competition will be tough in 2018, with industry profitability improving and capital increases strengthening the South Korean builders. While Chinese deliveries have improved in volume terms with a 44% rise on a year earlier, the value of exports has declined due to prior price competition. Leading exporters that face a tough market, and state-owned enterprise reform in 2018, are Jiangsu New Century and Shanghai Waigaoqiao – each led by around $1 billion of deliveries in the past year to the Marshall Islands and Hong Kong respectively.

Deal Needed, But Unlikely Soon, To Keep Britain Great in China

Future trade relations between the U.K. and China will be on the agenda at government talks this weekend. While a formal FTA can’t be signed until the U.K. leaves the EU customs union, framework talks could. China may be more focussed on signing Asia-centric deals like the RCEP, and the belt-and-road strategy doesn’t quite reach the U.K. British goods exports to China have grown more slowly than the EU recently with an 11.8% rise in the past year vs. 14.9% for the rest of the EU. U.K. exports to China are led by autos (31% of the total in the 12 months to September 30), oil (15%), pharmaceuticals (5%) and diagnostic equipment (2%). British manufacturers may face stronger competition from EU rivals in China, particularly in autos from Germany and pharmaceuticals from France.

Tax Weight Lifting from Indian Exports, Apparel Still Struggling

India’s trade activity experienced a rebound in November with a 31% surge in exports after a 2% drop on a year earlier the previous month. Growth throughout the second half had been held back by complications in securing general sales tax (GST) refunds, with this data suggesting that problem may be lessening. Much of the growth has been led by oil products (49%) and other commodities though the pharmaceutical sector also saw a 13% growth despite a weakening global price environment. Apparel was the worst performing sector with a 10% slide in exports, partly reflecting the ongoing weakness seen as southeast Asian countries win market share. India’s exporters are highly reliant on developed economies (the U.S. and the EU) and relatively specialized (t-shirts represent 10% of all apparel exports).

India Brings Old Fashioned Protectionism To Encourage New Technology Manufacturing

The Indian government is raising import tariffs on a variety of electronics including mobile phones, cameras and televisions to encourage domestic production. It is pursuing similar plans for components too. There has been a pickup in supplies in the past year, though the increase of 6% in the past quarter on a year earlier reflects a 21% slump in mobile phone imports offsetting a 33% surge in video cameras. China will see the biggest hit as it accounts for 69% of total shipments of the products facing increased duties, followed by Malaysia and Germany (both 4%). These tariffs may need to be walked back in order to secure the RCEP trade deal, that includes China and the ASEAN countries, and the BTIA deal with the EU in 2018.
