Mexican Polyurethanes Industry
Mexico is an export hub, and the outlook for foreign trade in 2022 and beyond is favorable and could rise by 22% in the region, according to the UN Economic Commission for Latin America. This will be driven by demand from the U.S., EU and returning economic activity in the region.
The construction industry is forecast to grow by 5.6% in 2022 as the region benefits from the spill-over effects of recent U.S. stimulus packages, and strong growth in China.
Mexico is a fast-growing producer of goods for export. Figures from the USITC show it has become a more important importer of footwear to the U.S. It was the country’s 7th most important source of footwear in 2018 and in 2020 it had risen to third. Mexico was also the largest source of imported refrigerators to the U.S. between 2018 and 2020.
