Importing countries reshuffle the UAE to squeeze into the top three.
In the first quarter of 2021, the top three countries for China’s tinplate export are Thailand, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates. The country with the most significant year-on-year growth rate is the United Arab Emirates. In the first quarter of 2021, China exported about 16,700 tons to it, which is more than 3.5 times higher than the same period last year. South Africa is followed by South Africa. In the first quarter of 2021, China exported about 17,500 tons to it, a year-on-year increase of 71%. Only Thailand’s imports from China in the first quarter of 2021 declined compared with the same period last year, a drop of 31%.
The uneven pace of global epidemic control in the post-epidemic era is one of the important reasons why China’s export volume is clearly differentiated by country. At the same time, China’s steel export data also has a certain reference for foreign epidemic control. It can be seen that although the international market demand is lower than the same period last year, China still has the advantage of steel export in the short term.
