The 2012 International Trade Statistics Yearbook, Volume II - Trade by Commodity contains detailed tables showing international trade for 258 individual commodities (3-digit SITC groups) and eleven world trade tables covering trade values and indices up to the year 2012. The information contained is based on data provided by approximately 140 countries (areas), representing more than 90% of world trade of 2012. Volume II has been compiled approximately six months after the submission of Volume I (in November 2013) as the preparation of these tables requires and benefits from the additional country data which, normally, become available later in the year. Volume I - Trade by Country has been compiled (and made available) early in 2013 (in May 2013) to allow for an advanced release of an overview of international merchandise trade in 2012 and for a much earlier publication of the available 2012 country (area) data.

Commodities and transactions not classified elsewhere in the SITC

In 2012, the exports value (in current prices) of special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind (SITC group 931) increased by 2.3 percent and totaled 642.7 bln US$ (see tables 1 and 2). Their imports value in the same year increased much faster by 19.5 percent and reached 584.4 bln US$ (see tables 1 and 3). This export growth rate is lower than the 8.2 percent increase world exports of commodities and transactions not classified elsewhere in SITC (SITC section 9), but higher than the 0.3 percent increase in total world exports. Exports of special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind (SITC group 931) accounted for 69.0 percent of world exports of SITC section 9 and 3.6 percent of total world exports in 2012 (see table 1).
