USA's foreign trade with Thailand, exports to Thailand and imports from Thailand 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 Thailand represented 1.3 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 0.8 % of USA's exports and 1.7 % of imports. In April Thailand was USA's 19. largest foreign trade partner. Most of the value of trade between the countries consists of the import to USA. Amounting trade to worth of $4.9 billion was 28.9 per cent bigger than in April of the previous year. In April the trade balance with Thailand was $2.7 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Thailand was 31.6 per cent higher than in April of the previous year, thus amounting to $3.8 billion. Major product categories of imports from Thailand were Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), representing 13.4 percent of imports, Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76) 9.4 % and Sitc625 (rubber tyres, interchangeable tyre treads, tyre flaps and inner tubes for wheels of all kinds) 7.0 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Thailand were 20.5 percent higher than in April of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.1 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), which represented a share of 14.3 per cent of total exports, Sitc776 (thermionic, cold cathode or photo-cathode valves and tubes (e.g., vacuum or vapour or gas-filled valves and tubes, mercury arc rectifying valves and tubes, cathode-ray tubes, television camera tubes); diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor dev) 9.1 % and Sitc784 (parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of groups 722, 781, 782 and 783) 4.4 % of the exports.

Development during January-April 2021

During January-April trade in goods with Thailand has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During January-April, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $18.5 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 13.7 percent. During January-April the value of imports was $14.2 billion. The export value was $4.3 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2020, the value of imports during this period increased by 19.6 %. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), worth $2.0 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc971 (gold,non-monetary), worth being $414 million. The value of exports during this period decreased by 2.1 %. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-April remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $9.8 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2020. At that time, the deficit was $7.4 billion.
