China dominates in the global amplifier trade. In 2014, China exported 36.2 million units of amplifiers totaling 1.9 billion USD, 6% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner was the U.S., where it supplied 31.7% of its total amplifier exports in value terms, accounting for 76.4% of total U.S. imports.

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

The U.S. and Mexico were among the other main global suppliers of amplifiers in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporter from 2007 to 2014 was Malaysia (+14.2% per year). Despite this burgeoning competition, China was still able to significantly strengthen its position in the global export structure.

In 2014, China's top 5 trading partners were the U.S., Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Japan, with a combined 48.5% share of China's amplifier exports. The share of Canada increased slightly (+2.0 percentage points), while the share of the U.S. illustrated negative dynamics (-2.4 percentage points).
