    A Profile of U.S. Importing and Exporting Companies,

    2008 - 2009

    The U.S. Census Bureau, Department ofCommerce, releases the report, A Profile of U.S.

    Importing and Exporting Companies, 2008 - 2009.This is the first report to include informationregarding U.S. importers. It provides informationon identified companies and their known export orimport value. Identified U.S. companies are definedas companies that can be linked to import or exporttransactions. The known value is the value ofexport or import transactions linked to specific

    companies. The decreases in known export andimport values correspond with the overall decreaseof trade in 2009; total export value decreased by18.0 percent and total import value fell by 25.9percent. The number of identified exporters fell by4.8 percent in 2009 and the known export valuedecreased by 18.4 percent compared to 2008. Thenumber of identified importers decreased by 5.3percent in 2009 and the known import valuedecreased by 23.4 percent.

    In 2009 the identified U.S. exporters accounted for$939 billion in exports or 88.9 percent of the totalvalue of exported goods ($1,056 billion). In 2009the number of identified U.S. exporters was 275.8thousand, down from the revised 2008 estimate of289.7 thousand. In 2008, the known value wasrevised to $1,151 billion.

    $1,350 billion in imports or 86.6 percent of the totalvalue of imported goods ($1,560 billion). The

    number of identified U.S. importers was 179.8thousand, down from 189.9 thousand in 2008.

    Because not all shipments can be linked to specificcompanies, the number of exporters and importersmay be understated. The total export value thatcould not be linked to specific companies totaled11.1 percent in 2009 and 10.6 percent in 2008. This

    portion of the total export value includes exports byindividuals, governments, low-value estimates, and

    information filed with missing, unknown, orincomplete company identifiers. The total importvalue that could not be linked to specific companiestotaled 13.4 percent in 2009 and 16.2 percent in2008. This portion of the total import value includesimports by individuals, articles exported and returned(the condition was not advanced), low-valueestimates, electricity and natural gas imports from

    Canada, and information filed with missing,unknown, or incomplete company identifiers.Export and import values are taken from thedetailed transactions used to compile the officialU.S. trade statistics. Company size and typeinformation are taken from administrative records

    and census or survey data on file with the CensusBureau.

    The overall findings for 2009 and 2008 are shownin Table 1, which shows the proportion of exportsand imports that were successfully matched tocompanies in the 2009 Business Register. Forexports, the 2008 figures in this report are revisedfrom data released in the 2007-2008 exporterprofile. The revisions are based on the ability tomatch additional records.

    Who Exports and Imports?

    During 2009, 9.7 percent (26.8 thousand) of allidentified exporters were multiple locationcompanies; these companies accounted for 74.9percent of the known export value (Exhibit 1a). Incontrast, 249.1 thousand single location companies(making up 90.3 percent of the exportingcompanies) contributed 25.1 percent of the knownexport value.

    In 2009 10.2 percent of all identified importers weremultiple location companies; these companiesaccounted for 74.9 percent of the known importvalue (Exhibit 1d). Single location companies,making up 89.8 percent of the importing companies,contributed 25.1 percent of the known import value.

    Trade with related parties accounted for 35.9percent of the known export value by multiplelocation companies compared to 15.0 percent bysingle location companies (Exhibit 3a).

    Exhibit 1a shows that manufacturers accounted forthe largest portion of the 2009 known value, 59.9percent, with 25.5 percent of the identified

    exporters. Other companies and wholesalersaccounted for 16.3 percent and 23.2 percent of theknown export value, respectively; unclassifiedexporters accounted for the remainder.

    For imports, manufacturers accounted for thelargest portion of 2009 known value, 44.5 percentwith 19.6 percent of the known importers. Other

    companies and wholesalers accounted for 21.6percent and 33.4 percent of the known import value(Exhibit 1d), respectively; unclassified companiesaccounted for the remainder of the known value.The other companies category includesmanufacturers of prepackaged software and books;

    brokers or freight forwarders and other transportationand warehousing firms, which often act as agents forthe true exporter; business, engineering, andmanagement services; oil and gas extractioncompanies; coal mining companies; andcommunication services companies.

    The number of multiple location exportingcompanies fell by 5.4 percent in 2009. All companytypes decreased; manufacturers decreased by 4.1percent, wholesalers by 1.8 percent, othercompanies by 7.1 percent, and unclassifiedcompanies by just 13.7 percent (Exhibit 1c).

    The number of multiple location importingcompanies decreased by 4.5 percent in 2009.Manufacturers fell by 6.2 percent, wholesalers by 3.2percent, other companies by 6.9 percent, andunclassified companies by 19.0 percent (Exhibit1f).

    The 2009 Export and Import Concentration by TopCompanies bar chart shows the concentration bypercent of known export and import values. Of theknown export value for 2009, 59.0 percent wasaccounted for by the top 500 companies. Just lessthan half of the total known export value wasaccounted for by the top 250 exporters.

    For imports, 67.7 percent of the known value wasaccounted for by the top 500 companies and 59.7percent of the total was accounted for by the top250 importers.

    For exports, the top 100 manufacturers contributed

    nearly one-third of the total known export value andover one-half of all exports by manufacturers(Exhibit 2a). For imports, the top 100

    manufacturers contributed 30.7 percent of the totalknown import value and over two-thirds of allimports by manufacturers (Exhibit 2c).

    Among the company types, the top 50manufacturers accounted for 42.2 percent of theknown export value of the manufacturing sector.The top 50 companies represented 34.7 percent ofthe known export value for wholesalers and nearly36.7 percent of the known value for other

    companies (Exhibit 2a).

    For imports, the top 50 importing manufacturersaccounted for 59.0 percent of the known value ofthis sector. The top 50 companies represented 36.8percent of the known import value for wholesalersand about 62.7 percent of the known value forother companies (Exhibit 2c).

    The 2009 Number of Companies that Export orImport Venn diagram shows the number ofidentified companies with both exports and imports.

    During 2009, 78,940 companies both exported andimported goods, 196,903 companies only exportedgoods, and 100,891 companies only importedgoods. The companies that both exported andimported in 2009 accounted for 85.6 percent of theknown export value and 92.7 percent of the knownimport value. Among companies that both importedand exported goods, 30.7 percent were

    manufacturers, 48.1 percent were wholesalers, and20.8 percent were other (Exhibits 1a, 1d, and 1g).

    Large-Sized Companies

    Large identified companies (those employing 500 or

    more workers) were responsible for 67.2 percent ofthe known export value and 68.1 percent of knownimport value. They represented only 2.4 percent ofall identified exporters and 2.9 percent of all knownimporters (Exhibits 1a and 1d).

    Large companies dominated manufacturers exports,with 3.6 percent of manufacturing exporters (2,557of 70,331) accounting for 82.8 percent ofmanufacturing export value ($466 billion of $562billion). Similarly, large wholesalers, who comprise0.8 percent of the wholesalers who export, accountedfor 38.9 percent of the value of known exports by

    wholesalers. Large companies in the othercategory represented 3.1 percent of the identifiedexporters in the other category, and 52.2 percent ofthe known value. Large manufacturers export valueto related parties represented 38.5 percent of themanufacturers total (Exhibit 3a).

    Large companies comprised 6.4 percent ofmanufacturing importers (2,264 of 35,243)accounting for 87.1 percent of manufacturing importvalue ($524 billion of $601 billion). Largewholesalers, who comprise approximately 0.8percent of the wholesalers who import, accounted for43.2 percent of the value of known imports bywholesalers. Large companies represented 3.7percent of identified importers in the othercategory (Exhibit 1d).

    Large companies accounted for 5.7 percent of thosethat both exported and imported goods in 2009.These large companies represented 77.1 percent ofthe known export value and 73.0 percent of theknown import value. (Exhibit 1g).

    Small- and Medium-Sized Companies

    Small- and medium-sized companies (thoseemploying fewer than 500 workers, includingnumber of employees unknown) comprised 97.6percent of all identified exporters and 97.1 percent

    of all identified importers. They account for 32.8percent and 31.9 percent of the known export andimport value, respectively. The following findingswere extracted from Exhibits 1a, 1d and 1g:

    96.4 percent of manufacturing exporters weresmall- or medium-sized companies; howeverthey contributed just 17.2 percent of the sector's$562 billion in exports. 93.6 percent ofmanufacturing importers were small- ormedium-sized; they accounted for 12.9 percentof the sectors $602 billion in imports.

    99.2 percent of exporting wholesalers weresmall- or medium-sized companies; theyaccounted for 61.1 percent of the sectors $218billion in exports. 99.2 percent of wholesalerimporters were small- or medium-sized; theycontributed 56.8 percent of the sectors $451billion in imports.

    96.9 percent of other companies with exportswere small- or medium-sized companies. 96.3percent of importing other companies weresmall- or medium-sized.

    Among companies that both exported andimported in 2009, small- or medium-sizedcompanies accounted for 94.3 percent of suchcompanies, accounting for 22.9 percent of theknown export value and 27.0 percent of theknown import value.

    Export and Import Markets

    The country groups used in the 2009 Profile havebeen revised from those used in earlier Profiles(Exhibits 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, and 5h).

    Countries were added to the Euro Area and AsiaNear East, and removed from the Organization ofPetroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Pleaserefer to World Area Country Groupings for Exhibit5.

    Most identified companies exported to (58.0percent) or imported from (60.8 percent) only one

    foreign country. A small percentage of exporters,0.4 percent, shipped to 50 or more countries; thesecompanies accounted for 48.3 percent of the knownexport value (Exhibit 4a). Less than 0.1 percent ofimporting companies imported from 50 or morecountries, accounting for 18.9 percent of the known

    import value (Exhibit 4c).

    In 2009 82.6 percent of all exporting companiesexported to at least one of the top 25 U.S. tradingpartners. The largest number of identifiedcompanies exported to Canada, followed by Mexico,the United Kingdom, Germany, and China (Exhibit5a). 89.5 percent of all importing companiesimported from at least one of the top 25 tradingpartners. The largest number of identifiedcompanies imported from China, followed byTaiwan, Germany, Italy, and India (Exhibit 5d).

    U.S. companies that both exported to and importedfrom Canada represented 69.0 percent of knownexport value to Canada in 2009 ($107 billion of $155billion). Companies exporting to and importing fromChina represented 67.1 percent of known importvalue from China ($187 billion of $278 billion). Thetop 5 countries for identified U.S. companies thathad both exports and imports in 2009 were China,Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico(Exhibits 5a, 5d, and 5g).

    Exports and Imports by State

    The Census Bureau releases data on exports by statebased on the origin of movement (OM). The OMdata series is based on where the goods began their

    journey to the port of export as reported with theelectronic export information. Similarly, importstatistics by state are based on the state of destination(SD). This is the reported state, U.S. territory orU.S. possession where the merchandise is destined.Exhibit 6 shows the number of companies exportingfrom and importing to each state during 2008 and2009 based upon these definitions. (Note that thesame company can be shown as exporting to or

    importing from multiple states.)

    In 2009, the top five states, based on the numberof identified exporting companies, wereCalifornia, Florida, New York, Texas, andIllinois. Exporters in these five states represented41.5 percent of the total known export value.For importing companies, the top five states

  • 8/7/2019 Profile of U.S. Importing and Exporting Companies

    6/59

    6

    were California, New York, Florida, Texas, andNew Jersey. Importers in these statesaccounted for 47.6 percent of the total knownimport value.

    States/territories recording the largest decreases

    in known export value in 2009 were NewMexico (56.2 percent), South Dakota (40.9percent), District of Columbia (33.9 percent),Kansas (33.0 percent), and Arizona (29.2percent). Wyoming (46.8 percent), NewHampshire (42.9 percent), Montana (40.8percent), District of Columbia (39.4 percent),and North Dakota (38.5 percent) had the largestdecreases in known import value.

    Comparison of 2008 and 2009 Results

    The relative proportions of exports and imports

    accounted for by manufacturers, wholesalers, andother companies based upon both number ofcompanies and known value remained consistentfrom 2008 to 2009. Below are a number ofnoteworthy year-to-year changes (Exhibits 1c, 1f,5c, and 5f):

    The known export value decreased by 18.4percent. The number of identified exportingcompanies decreased by 13,868 or just less than4.8 percent. The single location companiesdecreased by 12,347 and the multiple locationcompanies decreased by 1,521.

    The known import value fell by 23.4 percent.The number of identified importing companiesdecreased by 10,104 or 5.3 percent. The singlelocation companies decreased by 9,229 and themultiple location companies decreased by 875.

    The number of small- and medium-sizedexporting companies decreased by 4.7 percentfrom 282.6 thousand in 2008 to 269.3 thousandin 2009, while the number of large companiesdecreased by 7.5 percent from 7,108 to 6,574.

    The number of small- and medium-sizedimporting companies decreased by 5.2 percentfrom 184.3 thousand in 2008 to 174.6 thousandin 2009, while the number of large companiesdecreased by 8.0 percent from 5,674 to 5,219.

    The number of exporting wholesalers fell bynearly 1.8 percent from 95.3 thousand in 2008

    to 93.6 thousand in 2009. Additionally, thenumber of exporting manufacturers decreased by4.1 percent from 73.3 thousand in 2008 to 70.3thousand in 2009.

    The number of importing wholesalers fell by 3.2

    percent from 84.8 thousand in 2008 to 82.0thousand in 2009. Additionally, the number ofimporting manufacturers decreased by 6.2percent from 37.6 thousand in 2008 to 35.2thousand in 2009.

    Among the top 25 U.S. export trading partners,Belgium (11.2 percent), Germany (9.4 percent),Italy (9.4 percent), and Canada (8.7 percent)showed the largest percentage decreases in thenumber of identified exporting companies. Only3 of the top 25 U.S. export trading partners sawan increase in the number of identified exporting

    companies between 2008 and 2009: SaudiArabia (4.4 percent), Columbia (1.2 percent) andChile (1.2 percent).

    Among the top 25 U.S. import trading partners,Venezuela (19.3 percent), Singapore (13.2percent), Brazil (12.1 percent), the Netherlands(9.7 percent), and France (9.7 percent) showedthe largest percentage decreases in the number ofidentified importing companies.

    Some portion of these changes may reflect changesin the match rate rather than an actual change in thenumber of companies. During the process ofidentifying individual companies, it was not possibleto investigate every unmatched case. Priority wasgiven to identifying unmatched companies havinghigh values of trade. As a result, the information onsmall importers and exporters is most likelyunderstated. Also, users should not assume that theunidentified companies reflected the samedistribution of company types and sizes as theidentified (known) exporters and importers.Comparisons between the number of companiesimporting and exporting in given categories or

    different years might be somewhat misleading due todifferences in the percent of value we were able tomatch to specific companies.
