Table description


This table provides figures on the development of Dutch export value and the contributions made by the exporters, broken down by size category, multinationality, industry and export status.

Data available as of: 2012, except the series broken down by export status, which has been available from 2014.

Status of the figures:
The provisional figures on international trade may be adjusted on the basis of new or revised source data. This means their provisional status may be prolonged. The provisional figures become definitive in Q4 of the year following the reporting year. Figures over the previous years have already become definitive.

Changes as of 22 December 2021:
The “Export growth” and “Contribution to total export growth” of Large enterprises, Independent SME’s (0 to 9), Independent SME’s (10 to 49), Independent SME’s (50 to 249) and Foreign multinationals over the years 2017 and 2018 have been modified because they were wrongly marked as definitive. The “Export growth” and “Contribution to total export growth” of Dutch multinationals and Non-multinationals over the years 2013-2014 and 2016-2018 have also been modified. This was due to an error in the underlying source data.

When will new figures become available?
New figures will be published in Q4 of the year following the reporting year.

Description topics

Export growth
Year-on-year changes in absolute value. Annual changes for 2015 were omitted due to the break in series 2014/2015.
Contribution to total export growth
The contribution of a specific category to the total percentage growth in goods exports, calculated by dividing the absolute change in a category by the total value change of goods exports, multiplied by the annual change of goods exports as a percentage.
