Among the 25 key markets for Indian engineering goods, which contribute to more than 76 per cent of total exports, 14 countries witnessed a year-on-year decline in July, it said.
India's overall engineering exports dropped 6.62 per cent to USD 8.75 billion in the month under review from USD 9.37 billion in the year-earlier period.
This was mainly due to a fall in exports of iron, steel and aluminium coupled with reduced global demand, EEPC said.
EEPC India Chairman Arun Kumar Garodia said in such a situation, there is a need for the country to diversify into other markets.
"Eight consecutive months of y-o-y decline since December 2022 reflects the depressing scenario of global trade. It is an opportunity for the Indian exporters to diversify into the African and Latin American markets, he said.
