Thus, the statistics below present the surplus between the value of each country’s apples exports and its import purchases for that same commodity.

  1. China: US$1.3 billion (net export surplus up 53.4% since 2012)
  2. Italy: $890.5 million (down -2.1%)
  3. Chile: $660 million (down -9.2%)
  4. United States: $625.8 million (down -29.1%)

Opportunities

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

  1. Germany: -US$444.1 billion (net export deficit down -10.3% since 2012)
  2. United Kingdom: -$426.5 million (down -20.1%)
  3. Russia: -$365.8 million (down -54%)
  4. Egypt: -$329 million (up 41.4%)
  5. Belarus: -$283.7 million (up 891.2%)
  6. Taiwan: -$274.7 million (up 67.1%)
  7. Indonesia: -$263.5 million (up 54.5%)
  8. Thailand: -$238.9 million (up 52.5%)
  9. Mexico: -$233.1 million (down -19.8%)
  10. India: -$232.4 million (up 25.2%)
  11. Canada: -$220.9 million (up 8.2%)
