The U.S. is the global leader in imports on the computer terminal market, accounting for a 20% share (based on USD). It was followed by Germany (8%), China (8%), and the Netherlands (7%). In 2015, U.S. computer terminal and other computer peripheral equipment imports totaled 22,600 million USD, which was 628 million USD (3%) less than the year before.

From 2007 to 2015, U.S. computer terminal and other computer peripheral equipment imports showed mixed dynamics. A significant drop in 2009 was followed by recovery over the next year. Imports stood at a stable level over the last five years, until the decline became more pronounced in 2015. There was an annual decrease of -1.5% after 2009. Consequently, imports failed to reach the peak level of 2007 during the period under review.

Despite the downward imports trend, the U.S. remains one of the most attractive destinations for overseas suppliers.

China was the main supplier of computer terminals and other computer peripheral equipment into the U.S., with a 62% share of total U.S. imports in 2015, based on USD. It was distantly followed by Mexico (8%), which was the fastest growing supplier (+6.4% per year) from 2007 to 2015, while imports from China declined by -2.3% per year. From 2007 to 2015, Mexico strengthened its position in the U.S. import structure by +4 percentage points, while China gained +1 percentage point.

The U.S. was a net importer of computer terminals and other computer peripheral equipment from 2007 to 2015. In 2015, U.S. computer terminals and other computer peripheral equipment ran a trade deficit of 13,579 million USD, a figure that has remained relatively stable in recent years.
