Value of Exported Goods Increases Significantly

The value of exported industrial, marine and agricultural products has increased significantly over the past three years, RÚV reports (referencing compiled statistics published in Fréttablaðið).

During the first four months of 2022, goods have been exported for almost ISK 319 billion ($2.3 billion / €2.3 billion), compared to ISK 197 billion (($1.5 billion / €1.4 billion) during the same period in 2020.

The value of exported marine products amounted to ISK 118 billion ($874 million / €842 million) during the first four months of this year, compared to ISK 81 billion ($600 million / €578 million) in 2020.

The value of exported agricultural goods, including farmed fish, totalled ISK 20 billion ($148 million / €143 million) during the first four months of 2022, compared to ISK 11 billion ($81 million / €79 million) in 2020.

Finally, the value of exported industrial products is up by 75% – from ISK 99 billion ($733 million / €707 million) to ISK 175 billion ($1.3 billion / €1.2 billion) – during the first four months of this year as compared to 2020. A significant factor in that regard is that exported aluminium’s value has doubled compared to two years ago.
