MUST READ ​Why India's world-beating growth is not enough to end its deep jobs drought The world’s fastest growing major economy isn’t growing nearly fast enough. That may seem like an absurd description for India, an economy the International Monetary Fund expects to expand 7.3 percent in the fiscal year through March 2019 and 7.5 percent in the next.

JM Financial on textiles sector In Jun’18, India’s market share in home textile exports to the US (sum of all products) decreased 5ppt YoY to 29%. In the same month, India’s market share in cotton sheets exports to the US (in USD terms) increased 2ppt YoY to 49%, while market share in terry towels declined significantly by 13ppt YoY to 33%. India’s exports to the US (in USD terms) in terry towels and cotton sheets declined 16.5%/7.2% YoY YTD, respectively. a) Extension of MEIS (4% export benefit), b) INR depreciation (10% YTD-CY18) and c) settling of market place disruption in the US are a welcome relief to the home textile exporters.

Sector watch: Automobiles India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) has maintained a stable outlook for the auto sector for the remainder of FY19. This is in line with Ind-Ra’s earlier expectations of moderate sales volume growth in the passenger vehicle (PV) segment, double-digit growth in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment and steady growth in the two-wheeler segment (2W) on a year-on-year basis.   While the growth momentum in CVs is likely to continue, thanks to improved economic activity, increased infrastructure development and improved mining activities, the growth rate is likely to moderate in 2HFY19 due to a higher base. Amid several regulatory changes undergoing in the industry, CV growth would remain susceptible to clarity regarding the new axle load norms and vehicle scrappage policy.
