Dear Friends , Interesting report on the number of stone imports into the US in February year 2019; and comparing the same time in the year 2018, it is interesting for me that most of the world’s stones are exported to the US monthly. In this between
China with $ 2 million granite and $ 5 million marble, is one of the top exporters, then
Brazil with $ 18 million in granite and
Turkey with $ 14 million marble and
India with $ 10.5 million granite and marble and Italy with $ 10 million granite and marble
These are in a List of largest exporters.
Now pay attention to the number of countries exporting to the US in February:
Emirates- Argentina- Austria- Belgium- Brazil- Bulgaria- Canada- China- Denmark- Dominican- Ecuador- Egypt- Flanders- France- Germany- Greece- Hong Kong- India- Indonesia- Israel- Italy- Jordan- Korea- Lebanon- Mexico- Morocco- Namibia- Holland- Pakistan- Peru- Philippines- Poland- Portugal- Russia- Arabia- South Africa- Spain- Sri Lanka- Switzerland- Syria- Taiwan- Tunisia- Tunisia- Turkey- England- Vietnam- Zimbabwe
The report includes imports to the United States in the granite, marble, slate and other rocks, both in value in dollars and in tonnage.
Total US imports:
In February of the 2019 year $ 102 million and this month in the Year 2018, it was $ 118.5 million, down 14 percent from a year earlier.
