China continued its dominance in the global trade of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters. In 2014, China exported 510 thousand tonnes of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters totaling 3,651 million USD, more or less the same as the previous year. Its primary trading partner was the U.S., where it supplied 8.0% of its total exports of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters in value terms, accounting for 79.4% of the U.S.'s total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, China was a net exporter of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters. Over this period exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. In physical terms, there was little difference in what came in versus what went out.

Germany and Turkey were among the other main global suppliers of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were Thailand (+21.8% per year) and Mexico (+42.4% per year). Still, even with increased competition, China was able to strengthen its position in the global export structure.

In 2014, China's top 5 trading partners were the U.S., Japan, Brazil, the Netherlands and Germany, with a combined 42.2% share of China's exports of electric ovens, cookers, cooking plates, boiling rings, grillers and roasters. The share of Brazil increased modestly (+4.3 percentage points), while the share of the U.S. illustrated negative dynamics (-8.5 percentage points).
