Graph1: Global exports to India for HS Code 761090 (aluminium structures and plates) in USD Million.

The above chart depicts the year-on year comparison for global exports to India for HS Code 761090 during Year 1 (Mar 2016- Feb 2017) and Year 2 (Mar 2017 Feb 2018).From Graph1 it can be seen that exports to India have increased every month in Year 2 in comparison to Year 1,especially in the months of November it increased by 77%, January  by 88% and February by 106%. A major reason for this sustained increase in exports of products under HS Code 761090 which are further sub-categorised, as aluminum plates, rods, structures and water storage containers. India lacks technical skillset and neglects expenditure on research and development to develop newer designs and innovations. The rising production costs of raw material like coal, alumina etc. used to make aluminum extrusions have increased in the international markets. Lack of government assistance, high power costs, no subsides and thinner margins have stagnated dometic manufacturing. Local smelters in producing aluminium parts, lack production capabilities limited understanding of methods to produce larger castings, insufficient tools and absence of automation results in unfinished parts of aluminium products.  Rising investments, growing economy, infrastructure development projects, aided by a growing automobile and power sector and Government of India’s “Housing for All” and “Power for All” will give a thrust in demand for products under HS Code 761090.

Indian Trade Classification for products under HS Code 761090

As per the International Harmonized System, for HS Code 761090 which includes products categorised as “Other” with no single classification.
