Advantages

The following countries posted the highest positive net exports for computer accessories during 2016. Investopedia defines net exports as the value of a country’s total exports minus the value of its total imports. Thus, the statistics below present the surplus between the value of each country’s exported computer accessories and its import purchases for that same commodity.

  1. China: US$12.5 billion (net export surplus up 2.3% since 2012)
  2. Hong Kong: $6 billion (up 82.6%)
  3. Netherlands: $5.6 billion (down -12.1%)
  4. Taiwan: $3.1 billion (down -21%)
  5. South Korea: $1.5 billion (down -5.2%)
  6. Thailand: $973.6 million (reversing a -$284.4 million deficit)
  7. Vietnam: $815.3 million (reversing a -$153 million deficit)
  8. Malaysia: $758.8 million (down -52%)
  9. Israel: $58 million (reversing a -$984,000 deficit)
  10. Denmark: $47.3 million (reversing a -$55 million deficit)
  11. Australia: $29.5 million (reversing a -$36.1 million deficit)

  15. Malta: $2.1 million (reversing a -$3.3 million deficit)

China has the highest surplus in the international trade of computer accessories. In turn, this positive cashflow confirms strong Chinese competitive advantage for this specific product category.

Opportunities

The following countries posted the highest negative net exports for computer accessories during 2016. Investopedia defines net exports as the value of a country’s total exports minus the value of its total imports.

  1. Mexico: -US$5 billion (net export deficit up 7.2% since 2012)
  2. Philippines: -$1.6 billion (up 0.2%)
  3. Germany: -$1.4 billion (down -23.6%)
