New Import-Export Market Information Report Now Available

In a constantly evolving global economy, information on U.S. imports and exports is becoming increasingly valuable. NFPA’s 2021 Foreign Trade Report, based on U.S. International Trade Commission data, is now available for member download.

Companies shipping fluid power products into and out of the U.S. use a standard set of codes for reporting the value and quantity of these shipments to the U.S. Customs Service. Data gathered through this reporting system is aggregated and summarized by the U.S. Census Bureau. This data can be used to specifically measure the imports and exports of fluid power products in the U.S. which provides members with valuable data on the status of our industry on a global scale.

The updated report contains critical information including:

  • U.S. foreign trade metrics by individual product
  • Balance of trade throughout the past 10 years
  • Country-specific data on imports/exports

Download the 2021 Foreign Trade Report today to gain access to the crucial data you need to assess your company’s place in the global fluid power economy.
