THE UNITED STATES INCREASED MARKET SHARE OF WORLD DAIRY EXPORTS DURING 1992-96

The United States increased its share of world dairy exports from 2 percent to almost 10 percent during 1992-96, a share that likely will increase in the future, reports the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in its publication Industry and Trade Summary: Dairy Products.

The ITC, an independent nonpartisan, factfinding agency, recently released the report as part of an ongoing series of reports on thousands of products imported into and exported from the United States. The following are other highlights from the report.

The foregoing information is from the ITC report Industry and Trade Summary: Dairy Products (USITC Publication 3080, January 1998).

ITC Industry and Trade Summary reports include information on product uses, U.S. and foreign producers, and customs treatment of the product being studied. They analyze the basic factors affecting trends in consumption, production, and trade of the commodities, as well as factors bearing on the competitiveness of the U.S. industry in domestic and foreign markets.
