From 2007 to 2015, U.S. fluid power valve and hose fitting imports showed mixed dynamics. An abrupt plunge in 2009 was followed by a rapid recovery over the next year. Imports surged in 2011 and then continued to grow at a healthy pace until 2014. However, in 2015, imports slipped by -2%, which could be a sign of a further correction.

China strengthened its position in the U.S. import structure by +4 percentage points from 2007 to 2015, while the shares of the other countries remained relatively stable.
