Global Trade Data Coverage for Asia-Pacific Imports & Exports

The global trade outlook for Asia and the Pacific regions have seen tremendous growth in recent times. But despite some slowdowns, Asia-Pacific (APAC) still presents key opportunities for importers, manufacturers, logistics services providers, and others to tap the potential of this evolving and dynamic region. Understanding import and export trends is critical given the complex economic factors and regulatory complexities in the region.

Asia-Pacific contains some of the best opportunities for global importers to diversify their supply chains. For many years, global importers have relied upon a “China+1” policy for their sourcing needs. Recently, amid shifting trade policy between the United States and China, many of these importers began branching out to other East Asian suppliers. Among the top beneficiaries of this trend has been Thailand and South Korea. Keeping a keen eye on trade trends and identifying opportunities in this environment requires a robust solution and accurate global trade data.

Powered by the world’s largest searchable global trade database, including some of the largest and most influential markets in Asia-Pacific, Descartes Datamyne provides in-depth business insight and intelligence to companies worldwide.

Importance of Asia-Pacific to U.S. Trade

Descartes Datamyne Asia Import-Export Data is essential global market intelligence for U.S. importers and exporters. The Asian countries we cover – including China, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Korea, and Vietnam – account for more than a quarter of U.S. trade, according to global trade data. These countries are also projected to receive the majority of U.S. exports outside North America through 2030, with China, India and Vietnam setting the pace for growth in U.S. overseas markets.


As production hubs and sources of supply, Asia-Pacific produces and ships more than a third of current U.S. imports. Asia’s four largest economies rank among the top 10 countries of origin for U.S. inbound trade – while China and Vietnam top the list of the world’s fastest-growing sources for U.S. imports.

Gathered from trade ministries, customs agencies, and other authoritative sources, Datamyne’s Asia-Pacific trade data is highly reliable, detailed and the latest available from any source.
