Despite shrinking exports, the U.S. continued its dominance in the global ether trade. In 2014, the U.S. exported 2.9 million tonnes of ethers totaling 3,520 million USD, 10% under the previous year. Its primary trading partner was Mexico, where it supplied 29.1% of its total ether exports in value terms, accounting for approximately all of Mexico's total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, the U.S. was a net exporter on the ether market. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. In physical terms, the difference was even more pronounced.

The Netherlands and Germany were among the other main global suppliers of ethers in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were India (+26.9% per year) and Singapore (+12.3% per year).

In 2014, the U.S.'s top 5 trading partners were Mexico, Japan, Venezuela, Chile and Belgium, with a combined 81.2% share of U.S. ether exports. The share of Japan increased significantly (+21.6 percentage points), while the share of Venezuela illustrated negative dynamics (-3.3 percentage points).
