Component Makers See a Dip in Sales

By: carazoo.com

The component makers are having a tough time. It's only a few top auto component makers like Amtek, Sona or Bharat Forge are leaping up on the sector, the other side of the same business in hard bowled by stronger rupee, which is declining profitability in the export.


According to Automotive Components Manufacturers' Association (ACMA) "exports are estimated to grow at 15.8%, while imports are likely to grow at more than double that rate - 35percent- this fiscal."

In the 2008 Post ASEAN level in 2008, the car component manufacturing industries have tried to reverse some duty since the tariff rates were said to decrease. But the expectation fell flat. President of ACMA further complaint: "Our profits are shrinking. While the dollar debacle has cut our margins, the flooding of imports from China and our free trade agreement (FTA) partner Thailand is making us uncompetitive. India has become a net importer of components. The pressure on prices and profitability with cost increase due to increase in higher interest rates is making us uncomfortable,"

The entire industry is wobbling under the custom duty of 10 percent, with a new duty coming down to 7.5 percent on a few selective products.

?"It's fine that the government carries our internal reforms before taking any decision on custom duties. Octroi, entry tax, toll tax and many inter-state levies need to be removed while the implementation of uniform goods and services tax or GST (to replace central sales tax) will allow us to retain intrinsic competitiveness in the global trade," added ACMA president further added.?
