Asian vs South American Exports Trends
Posted Date: 8 May 2013
North American import capacity from Asia continues to follow a largely seasonal trend. Meanwhile South American direct export capacity to North America is reflecting a growing trend. The Asian capacity in this trade is roughly 200 times that of South American capacity.
However, North America might be looking to South America more than before. There are two overlapping scales with South America in red and Asia in blue. Aside from the Asia to America holiday rush, which occurs from May-August, the capacity returns to within 1 per cent or nearly the same level as it was last in March 2012. Conversely, South American capacity droops at the same period and yet returns to a slow steady growth in exports of almost 3 per cent since March 2012.
