Brazilian Annual Iron Ore Exports Breakdown

Iron Ore

Of the 374.0 Mt of iron ore Brazil exported in 2016, 214.6 Mt was shipped to China, up 29.3 Mt year-on-year and an all-time high, according to the Tex Report. Growth in exports to China, and other destinations in Asia, helped counter a fall in shipments to Europe, which dropped by 3.7 Mt to 54.1 Mt primarily due to reduced cargoes to Germany and the UK, and lower exports to the Africa and the Middle East, which declined by 7.1 Mt to 16.8 Mt.
