Despite a dip in exports in 2014, China held onto its second place position in the global digital data processing machine trade. In 2014, China exported 4.5 million units of digital data processing machines totaling 4.4 billion USD, 11% under the previous year. Its primary trading partner was the U.S., where it supplied 32.1% of its total digital data processing machines exports in value terms, accounting for 36.7% of the U.S.'s total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, China was a net exporter of digital data processing machines. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. In physical terms, this difference was even more pronounced.

Mexico and Poland were among the other main global suppliers of digital data processing machines in 2014. These countries were the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 (+44.0% and +149.3% per year, respectively). By virtue of their meteoric growth, Poland was able to significantly strengthen its position in the global export structure.

China's top 5 trading partners in 2014 were the U.S., the Netherlands, Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom, with a combined 64.9% share of China's digital data processing machine exports. The share of the Netherlands increased significantly (+7.1 percentage points), while the share of the U.S. illustrated negative dynamics (-8.4 percentage points).
