Chile continued its dominance in the global grape trade. In 2014, Chile exported 732 thousand tonnes of grape totaling 1,514 USD, 6% under the previous year. Its primary trading partner on the global grape market was the U.S., where it supplied 44% of its total grape exports in value terms, accounting for 56% of the U.S. total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, Chile was a net exporter of grape. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was more pronounced.

The U.S. and Italy were among the other main global suppliers of grape in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were China (+41% per year) and Peru (+40% per year). These countries significantly strengthened their positions in the global export structure.

In 2014, Chile's top 5 trading partners were the U.S., China, the Republic of Korea, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, with a combined 77% share of Chile's grape exports. The share of China increased significantly (+9 percentage points), while the share of the U.S. illustrated negative dynamics (-12 percentage points).
