USA's foreign trade with Germany, exports to Germany and imports from Germany in August 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.

Germany's share of USA's foreign trade in goods in August 2020 represented a share of 4.5 per cent. Share of USA's that month's exports was 4.1% and 4.8% of imports. In August Germany was USA's fifth largest foreign trade partner. $14.6 billion worth of trade was 13.7 per cent lower than in August of the previous year. In August the trade balance with Germany was $5.0 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Germany decreased by 18.6 per cent compared to in August of the previous year, thus amounting to $9.8 billion in August 2020. Major product categories of imports from Germany were Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), representing 15.8 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) 9.4 % and Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 5.6 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Germany declined by 1.7 per cent compared to in August of the previous year, thus amounting to $4.8 billion in August 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), which represented a share of 14.3 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) 11.7 % and Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 5.6 % of the exports.

Development during January-August 2020

The trade in goods between January and August of 2020 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $110.4 billion, down 12.0 %. During January-August the value of imports was $73.1 billion. The export value was $37.3 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of imports decreased by -14.8% and the value of exports by -5.9 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), worth $7.9 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth being $5.4 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-August remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $35.8 billion. The trade deficit narrowed compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $46.2 billion.
