India is exporting many products to China. Some of the most common ones are; cotton yarn, iron ore, and electrical machinery. India exports 36% of its diamonds to China.

If Indian export disrupted;

1. The price of many goods may increase as export dips.

2. Total production could also suffer if the supply of key inputs disrupted.

3. Pharma and Electronic products are likely to most affect because India imports many intermediate types of equipment from china and export them after making finished products.

The above data shows that India exports just 5% of its total export to China while China sends just 2% of its export to India.

India, imports many middle goods from China which are further used in making the final products in India and exported to China. So if the Indian export to China is reduced it will affect not only China but also India as well.
