Table description


This table contains information about materials that enter or leave the Dutch economy through import, export and extraction. Materials include raw products (resources), semi-finished products and finished products. The import and export of materials is recorded both in kilos (physically) and in euros (monetary). The currently presented tables can be referred to as the material flow accounts.

This table is part of the environmental accounts. Data in the environmental accounts are compiled according the concepts and definitions of the national accounts, which makes it possible to quantify the environmental effects of the economic activities for the Netherlands in a consistent manner. As a result, the figures may differ from data presented elsewhere on the website.

Data available from: 1996

Status of the figures:
Provisional figures.

Changes as of February 2021:
The provisional figures for 2019 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
New provisional figures are published annually, usually around January.

Description topics

Import by type of material
The import of goods comprises goods, destined for Dutch residents that originate in other economies. This also included goods that, after import, leave the country again without any significant treatment taken place as long as these goods are owned by Dutch residents (re-exports).
Metal
Iron ore, primary and processed
Iron ore and derived products like metal sheets.
Non-ferro ore, primary and processed
Non-ferro metal ores and products thereof.
Total non-ferro ore
Non-ferro metal ores and products thereof.
Copper ore, primary and processed
Copper ores and products thereof.
Nickel ore, primary and processed
Nickel ores and products thereof.
Lead ore, primary and processed
Lead ores and products thereof.
Zinc ore, primary and processed
Zinc ores and products thereof.
Tin ore, primary and processed
Tin ores and products thereof.
Precious metal, primary and processed
Precious metal ore like silver and platinum and products thereof.
Bauxite, primary and processed
Bauxite and products, like aluminium, thereof.
Other metal ore, primary and processed
Mainly rare metals like molybdenum and titanium.
Export by type of material
The export of goods comprises goods, supplied by Dutch residents, whose destiny is another county. This also included purchases in the Netherlands by foreigners.
Metal
Iron ore, primary and processed
Iron ore and derived products like metal sheets.
