Bilateral Brief on India-Kuwait Economic and Commercial Relations

Kuwait is a small, rich, relatively open, petroleum-based economy. It has estimated crude oil reserves of 102 billion barrels or about 6% of world reserves. Oil revenues constitute the main source of income and amount to approximately 90% of the state’s revenues. During 2017, Kuwait’s total exports were KD 16.66 billion (US$ 54.98 billion) of which oil exports amounted to KD 14.95 billion (US$ 49.33 billion) while non-oil exports were KD 1.7 billion (US$ 5.61 billion) and its total imports were KD 10.19 billion (US$ 33.63 billion).

Kuwait offers an open, competitive and affluent market for consumer goods and project exports. The climate in Kuwait is not suitable for agriculture; resultantly, most of its requirements are imported. To meet its need for potable water, Kuwait depends on either desalination or import.

Kuwait is a relatively diverse project market. Kuwait embarked on its Development Plan (2015-2020) under which it is expected to award contracts worth over US$ 115 billion in various sectors. The projects would cover a wide range and include oil and gas sector both upstream and downstream, construction, including new cities, hospitals and housing units, infrastructure, including roads, airport, port, metro and railway projects, power and transmission, petrochemicals, gas processing, pipeline, etc.

Historically, Indo-Kuwaiti relations have always had an important trade dimension. India has consistently been among the top trading partners of Kuwait. Kuwait has been a reliable supplier of crude oil to India. During 2017-18, Kuwait was the ninth largest oil supplier to India and it meets about 4.63% of India’s energy needs. Total bilateral trade with Kuwait during 2016-17 was US$ 5.9 billion and for 2017-18 was US$ 8.53 billion. The trend of bilateral trade during the years 2012-13 to 2016-17 is as follows:
