USA's foreign trade with Saudi Arabia, exports to Saudi Arabia and imports from Saudi Arabia in November 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.

In November Saudi Arabia was USA's 35. largest foreign trade partner. Rise from the previous month 3 places. $1.3 billion worth of trade was 27.9 per cent lower than in November of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Saudi Arabia was $231 million of surplus.

The value of imports from Saudi Arabia decreased strongly, by 36.5 per cent compared to in November of the previous year. The import amounted to $537 million in November 2020. More than half of the value of imports was in Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) representing a share of 70.7 per cent. The second major category of imports was Sitc562 (fertilizers (other than those of group 272)), corresponding to the share of 6.3 per cent of imports.

The value of exports to Saudi Arabia declined by 20.3 per cent compared to in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $768 million in November 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: 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), which represented a share of 21.8 per cent of total exports, Sitc891 (arms and ammunition) 7.7 % and Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind) 5.1 % of the exports.

Development during January-November 2020

During January-November, trade in goods between the two countries declined sharply (-26.8 %) over the same period last year. The value of the trade was $18.7 billion. During January-November the value of imports was $8.6 billion. The export value was $10.1 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -31.0 % and in the value of exports -22.7 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), worth $7.0 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth being $1.8 billion. The trade balance between USA and Saudi Arabian between January and November was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $1.5 billion.
