USA's foreign trade with Taiwan, exports to Taiwan and imports from Taiwan 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 Taiwan was USA's tenth most important foreign trade partner. Weakening from the previous month was 3 places. Trade with Taiwan represented in November of 2021, 2.4 per cent share of USA's foreign trade in goods, 1.9 % of USA's exports and 2.7 % of imports. Amounting trade to worth of $9.9 billion was 23.1 per cent bigger than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with Taiwan was $4.0 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Taiwan was 27.2 per cent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $6.9 billion. Major product categories of imports from Taiwan 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 12.6 percent of imports, Sitc759 (parts and accessories (other than covers, carrying cases and the like) suitable for use solely or principally with machines falling withing groups 751 and 752) 11.1 % and 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) 9.6 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Taiwan were 14.6 percent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $3.0 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: 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), which represented a share of 13.5 per cent of total exports, Sitc728 (other machinery and equipment specialized for particular industries; parts thereof, n.e.s.) 11.0 % and Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) 8.7 % of the exports.

Significant increase in trade in goods in early 2021

During January-November, trade in goods with Taiwan has grown faster than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During this year trade in goods between countries was significantly higher than in January-November of the previous year. Growth was as high as 25.3 per cent and the value of the trade increased to $103.0 billion. During January-November the value of imports was $69.8 billion. The export value was $33.2 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 27.6 % and the value of exports by 20.7 %. 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 $8.0 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc728 (other machinery and equipment specialized for particular industries; parts thereof, n.e.s.), worth being $4.8 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-November remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $36.6 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2020. At that time, the deficit was $27.2 billion.
