Export Statistics

Panama exports a wide variety of products. The Georgia Tech Panama Logistics Innovation and Research Center developed a tool that provides statistics, and helps visualize trends and characteristics of the goods exported from Panama. The tool also provides information about the destination of Panamanian goods as well as ports of exit. During 2016, the value of exports, excluding those of the Colon Free Zone, totaled USD 635.5 million, 8.5% less than the previous year.

The most important exports in terms of FOB (Free On Board) value were bananas, prawns and cane sugar. The United States was our largest export partner.

The tool has the following sections:

  • Panama Exports: shows the total value (FOB) of goods exported from Panama throughout the years as well as the top products and the top trade partners.
  • Panama Exports by Commodity Group: shows the historic behavior of exported goods grouped by the type of commodity as well as a profile of each group detailing the country of destination, products within the group, and historic values.
  • Product Profiles: this section goes all the way down to the details of each product (Harmonized System Products) and includes monthly and yearly statistics, trade partners and points of exit of Panama.
  • Country Profile: gives information about our trade partners and what is being exported to each one of them.
