USA's foreign trade with Canada, exports to Canada and imports from Canada in Juli 2020


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

Canada's share of USA's foreign trade in goods in Juli 2020 represented a share of 13.9 per cent. Share of USA's that month's exports was 18.7% and 11.1% of imports. In Juli Canada was USA's third largest foreign trade partner. $43.4 billion worth of trade was 13.6 per cent lower than in Juli of the previous year. In Juli the trade balance with Canada was $1.3 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Canada decreased by 16.6 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $22.3 billion in Juli 2020. Major product categories of imports from Canada were Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), representing 14.8 percent of imports, Sitc781 (motor cars and other motor vehicles principally designed for the transport of persons (other than motor vehicles for the transport of ten or more persons, including the driver), including station-wagons and racing cars) 11.1 % and Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind) 6.3 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Canada declined by 10.1 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $21.1 billion in Juli 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc784 (parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of groups 722, 781, 782 and 783), which represented a share of 4.7 per cent of total exports, Sitc781 (motor cars and other motor vehicles principally designed for the transport of persons (other than motor vehicles for the transport of ten or more persons, including the driver), including station-wagons and racing cars) 4.5 % and Sitc782 (motor vehicles for the transport of goods and special-purpose motor vehicles) 4.2 % of the exports.

Development during January-Juli 2020

The trade in goods between January and Juli of 2020 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $288.4 billion, down 19.1 %. During January-Juli the value of imports was $148.4 billion. The export value was $140.0 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -19.7 % and in the value of exports -18.6 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), worth $24.2 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc782 (motor vehicles for the transport of goods and special-purpose motor vehicles), worth being $5.7 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-Juli remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $8.4 billion. The trade deficit narrowed compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $12.7 billion.
