USA's foreign trade with Japan, exports to Japan and imports from Japan in Juli 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.

Trade with Japan represented in Juli of 2021, 4.8 per cent share of USA's foreign trade in goods, 4.2% of USA's exports and 5.2% of imports. In Juli Japan was USA's fourth most important foreign trade partner. Amounting trade to worth of $18.3 billion was 40.1 per cent bigger than in Juli of the previous year. In Juli the trade balance with Japan was $6.3 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Japan was 48.6 per cent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $12.3 billion. Major product categories of imports from Japan 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 26.8 percent of imports, Sitc778 (electrical machinery and apparatus, n.e.s.) 5.0 % and Sitc784 (parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of groups 722, 781, 782 and 783) 4.9 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Japan were 25.4 percent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $6.0 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc342 (liquefied propane and butane), which represented a share of 9.8 per cent of total exports, Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof) 4.5 % and Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 4.4 % of the exports.

Development during January-Juli 2021

During January-Juli trade in goods with Japan has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During January-Juli, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $122.1 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 18.2 percent. During January-Juli the value of imports was $79.4 billion. The export value was $42.8 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 21.2% and the value of exports by 13.0%. 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 $20.2 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc342 (liquefied propane and butane), worth being $3.4 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-Juli 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 $27.6 billion.
