Metal Exports Produced by the SASI group (Sheffield) and Mark Newman (Michigan)

Metals include copper, nickel,


aluminium and zinc. This category
also includes metal items such as tools
and cutlery. Some metals are exported
before being manufactured, others
are exported after being
manufactured. Of the money spent
on worldwide trade, 3.8% is spent on
metal exports.
Only 52 (out of 200) territories are
net metal exporters. The largest
exports (US$ net) are from Germany,
the Russian Federation, China and
Chile. Whilst a quarter of all net metals
exports come from territories in
Western Europe. As a region Western
Europe produces relatively low net
metal exports.
Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports
of metals (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are
exports minus imports. When imports are larger than
exports the territory is not shown.
