Exports from Thailand unexpectedly decreased 5.2 percent year-on-year to USD 20.70 billion in September 2018, missing market expectations of 6.05 percent, reversing from a 6.68 percent growth in a month earlier. It was the first decline in export in 19 months, mainly due to lower shipments of cars and parts, computers and accessories (-7.4 percent), and rubber products (-2.4 percent). Exports to China tumbled 14.1 percent while those to the US went up 1.2 percent. Considering January to September, exports rose 8.13 percent from a year earlier. The commerce ministry said exports would likely grow 8 percent this year, after last year's 9.9 percent rise. Exports in Thailand averaged 10445.59 USD Million from 1991 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 22794.45 USD Million in August of 2018 and a record low of 1997 USD Million in February of 1991.
