The latest Quarterly Trendspotting Report is now available! The report contains a quantitative analysis of the macro trends shaping global trade during Q2. This new initiative draws on Trendspotting, our intelligence tool which helps sourcing executives figure out which geographies are trending “hot” for the products they seek across the globe.
The report provides a clear view of how some of the most rapidly changing product categories performed relative to the same quarter one year prior. It also provides a nice illustration of the link between world events and trade flows. Note that, in Q2:
- Imports from Japan dropped the most in dollar terms versus the same quarter a year prior.
- Imports from Libya dropped the most in percentage terms versus the same quarter a year prior.
