- The U.S. share of world GDP and merchandise exports increased from 1995 to 2001 during
the "dot-com boom" period of U.S. economic expansion. Since 2001, the expansion of
developing economies in Asia-notably China's economy-contributed to the decline of the
U.S. share of world GDP and merchandise exports.
- Top goods exports from the United States include civilian aircraft and parts, motor vehicles
and parts, electrical equipment, electronics, and medical equipment (USDOC CB FTD 2009).
