USA's foreign trade with Saudi Arabia, exports to Saudi Arabia and imports from Saudi Arabia in April 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 April 2021 Saudi Arabia represented 0.5 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 0.7 % of USA's exports and 0.4 % of imports. In April Saudi Arabia was USA's 31. largest foreign trade partner. Decrease from the previous month was 2 places. Amounting trade to worth of $1.9 billion was 41.0 per cent bigger than in April of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Saudi Arabia was $220 million of surplus.

The value of imports from Saudi Arabia was 55.3 per cent higher than in April of the previous year, thus amounting to $839 million. More than half of the value of imports was in Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) representing a share of 68.1 per cent. Other major categories of imports were Sitc334 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude); preparations, n.e.s., containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or of oils obtained from bituminous minerals, these oils being the basic constituents of the prepar), 11.4 per cent of imports and Sitc562 (fertilizers (other than those of group 272)) 10.1 %.

The value of exports to Saudi Arabia were 31.5 percent higher than in April of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.1 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc891 (arms and ammunition), which represented a share of 13.4 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) 10.0 % and Sitc334 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude); preparations, n.e.s., containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or of oils obtained from bituminous minerals, these oils being the basic constituents of the prepar) 9.4 % of the exports.

Development during January-April 2021

The trade in goods between January and April of 2021 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $6.3 billion, down 15.0 %. During January-April the value of imports was $2.8 billion. The export value was $3.5 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2020, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -17.9 % and in the value of exports -12.5 %. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), worth $1.8 billion. In export the largest value had 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 being $544 million. The trade balance between USA and Saudi Arabian between January and April was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $788 million.
