Rising crude prices to roil CAD, rupee, inflation metrics: Care Ratings.

Subject: Rising crude prices to roil CAD, rupee, inflation metrics: Care Ratings
A possible increase in fuel prices due to the US sanctions on Iranian crude exports can have adverse impacts on the current account deficit (CAD), the rupee and inflation, warns a report.

The country meets a tenth of its crude demand from Iran--making it the third largest customer for the Persian country--and the "immediate challenge" is to find alternate suppliers who will be able to deliver it at competitive prices as Tehran offers after May 2, Care Ratings said Tuesday.

It can be noted that the US had on Monday decided to do away with exceptions on sanctions to countries like India who are importing oil from Iran from May 2. Following this, the government said it will stop shipments from that Gulf nation which has the one of the largest crude reserves in the world. China, Japan and India are the biggest three customers for Iran.

A 10 percent spike in crude prices can result in a 0.40 percent widening of the CAD, which can consequently play out into a 3-4 percent depreciation in the rupee and also push up inflation by 0.24 percent, the ratings agency said.

Crude prices jumped to the highest level at $74 a barrel since November following the US announcement and equities also tumbled the worst in 2019 Monday.

The rating agency report said if the crude prices remain around $75 a barrel for one more month, the Reserve Bank's rate setting panel may postpone a rate cut which it is widely expected to announce in June.

Rising crude prices can have a two-way impact on the domestic economy, which will play out on both the revenue and expenditure fronts, it said.

While higher oil prices will mean more revenue for the states as tax is ad valorem, but for the Centre, it may not matter as the rates are fixed, it said.

Oil marketing companies would earn higher profits if there is a pass-through which can be beneficial for the government too unless the subsidy on kerosene comes in the way, it said.

"With the US-directed sanctions kicking off from May 2, it would be interesting to see how the various macroeconomic indicators of the domestic economy change course owing to increase in crude prices," it said.

Meanwhile, its peer Icra said a $10 a barrel increase in oil prices will lead to a 0.10 percent increase in the headline inflation.

The discontinuation of Iranian oil imports is a credit negative for domestic refineries, it said, adding there will be an impact of about $350 million on annual operating profit of the domestic refiners.
