EMEA Trade Data

Global Trade Data Coverage for Europe, including the EU, the Middle East and Africa Imports and Exports

Accounting for 16.5% of global imports and exports, the European Union (EU) is one of the largest global trade marketplaces, surpassed only by China in global exports and the United States in imports. With trade-friendly policies and over 100 trade agreements in place or in the process of being updated or negotiated, the EU has become deeply integrated into the global market as both a source and destination for goods.

While exporters look to countries such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for opportunities and potential customers, the Middle East and Africa are both emerging markets of keen interest to importers, manufacturers, logistics providers and others. Both regions have the resources to be robust suppliers of raw materials, specifically for metals and minerals and certain chemical commodities.

Taken together, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) present key market opportunities for both global importers and exporters. Identifying and capitalizing on these opportunities requires a robust solution providing accurate global trade data.
