USA's foreign trade with Germany, exports to Germany and imports from Germany in November 2021


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 Germany was USA's fifth most important foreign trade partner. In November 2021 Germany represented 4.1 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 3.4 % of USA's exports and 4.5 % of imports. Amounting trade to worth of $17.1 billion was 16.3 per cent bigger than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with Germany was $6.5 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Germany was 19.7 per cent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $11.8 billion. Major product categories of imports from Germany 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), representing 12.6 percent of imports, Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 8.6 % and Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 6.4 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Germany were 9.5 percent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $5.3 billion. 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 14.5 per cent of total exports, Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof) 12.2 % and Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 4.8 % of the exports.

Development during January-November 2021

During January-November trade in goods with Germany has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During January-November, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $183.2 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 16.9 percent. During January-November the value of imports was $123.6 billion. The export value was $59.6 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 18.7 % and the value of exports by 13.4 %. The largest product group in terms of imports has been 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), worth $13.4 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth being $7.6 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-November remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $63.9 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2020. At that time, the deficit was $51.5 billion.
