£ Balance UK Trade (Millions)
UK Trade in Global Markets
The UK is seen as a vibrant exporter but 2015 saw a slump
of 5.2% in exports to the EU and a 10.4% drop in exports outside
of the EU. At the same time, imports have increased by 9.6% from
outside of the EU although EU imports decreased by 4.6%. This leaves
the UK as a net importer for both the EU and non-EU markets.
Overall, the EU remains the UK’s largest trading partner with 66%
of the worldwide market in exports and 64.8% of imports. However,
we can also see that manufacturing in countries such as China has
increased over the years with imports from China now ranking in
4th place. Consistent top export markets are the Irish Republic and
Germany with France and the US the top two importers into the UK
in 2015.
