In Juli South Africa was USA's 31. most important foreign trade partner. Decrease from the previous month was 3 places. Amounting trade to worth of $2.0 billion was 35.5 per cent bigger than in Juli of the previous year. In Juli the trade balance with South Africa was $908 million in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from South Africa was 25.7 per cent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.5 billion. Major product categories of imports from South Africa were Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group), representing 38.1 percent of imports, 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) 18.5 % and Sitc667 (pearls and precious or semiprecious stones, unworked or worked) 7.9 % of the imports.

Exports to South Africa grew strongly over the previous year's Juli. The value of exports was $564 million. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group), which represented a share of 8.9 per cent of total exports, Sitc784 (parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of groups 722, 781, 782 and 783) 8.3 % and Sitc342 (liquefied propane and butane) 8.2 % of the exports.

Significant increase in trade in goods in early 2021

During January-Juli, trade in goods with South Africa 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-Juli of the previous year. Growth was as high as 42.0186570902444 per cent and the value of the trade increased to $12.4 billion. During January-Juli the value of imports was $9.2 billion. The export value was $3.2 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 45.9% and the value of exports by 32.0%. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group), worth $4.4 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc784 (parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of groups 722, 781, 782 and 783), worth being $286 million. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-Juli remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $6.0 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2020. At that time, the deficit was $3.9 billion.
