China Export Growth Stays Robust
Exports from China grew 20.9 percent year-on-year to USD 340.5 billion in December 2021, above market forecasts of a 20 percent growth, and after a 22 percent rise in November. It was the 15th month running of double-digit growth in exports, amid ongoing solid global demand. Exports increased to the US (21.1 percent), the ASEAN countries (12 percent), and the EU (25.65 percent). For the whole 2021, exports soared 29.9 percent to USD 3.3 trillion, accelerating sharply from a 3.6 percent rise in 2020, despite semiconductor shortages that disrupted manufacturing.

China Export Growth Slows in November
Exports from China rose 22 percent year-on-year to a fresh record high of USD 325.53 billion in November 2021, easing sharply from a 27.1 percent jump in October but beating market forecasts of 19 percent growth. The slowdown in foreign demand came in amid a strong yuan, higher costs and the emergence of the Omicron COVID-19 variant. Among major commodities, sales were up for unwrought aluminum and products (20.12 percent), rare earths (86.10 percent) and grains (20.29 percent), but were down for refined products (-15.29 percent). Exports increased to ASEAN (22.3 percent), the EU (33.5 percent), and the US (5.3 percent). Considering the first eleven months of the year, exports soared 31 percent from a year earlier to USD 3.03 trillion.

Exports from China grew 27.1 percent year-on-year to USD 300.22 billion in October 2021, after a 28.1 percent surge in September and compared with market expectations of 24.5 percent.

Sales increased from Japan (16.3 percent), South Korea (33.1 percent), Taiwan (24.0 percent), Australia (22.3 percent), the US (22.7 percent), the ASEAN countries (18.0 percent), and the EU (44.3 percent).
