A synchronised growth revival across the developed and emerging economies is taking shape. The IMF recently upgraded its world GDP growth rate projections to 3.6 per cent for 2017 and 3.7 per cent for 2018. Importantly, this is slightly above the 10-year and five-year average of 3.5 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively. The world trade volume in both goods and services is also continuing to show recovery. Further, all major countries in the world, both developed and developing, are posting PMIs greater than 50, which indicates positive sentiment among businesses globally.
India has seen macro-economic stability with low inflation and steady push to the reforms momentum. While India remains one of the fastest growing major economies in the world, the pace of economic growth in recent quarters has remained below its potential. Green shoots of economic recovery will likely become visible in the latter half of the year. Merchandise exports have rebounded sharply post a weak Q1 F2018 and imports have stabilized. Inflation, both CPI and WPI, has been below RBI’s tolerance band. Growth momentum is likely to witness a cyclical bounce-back once the effects of some of the recent transient factors fade away and the economy adjusts to GST implementation. Inventory restocking, a normal monsoon and the lagged effect of past interest rate cuts will continue to provide a fillip to growth going forward.
