Today's trade data showed a widening of the UK's trade in goods deficit to £31.6 billion in the three months to October 2015. This was mainly down to a £1.6 billion fall in fuel exports and a £1.3 billion rise in machinery and transport equipment imports. This means that in the 10 months to October 2015 exports of goods are down around 2% compared with the same period in 2014.


So what's been happening with UK exports?

This blog helps to shed some light on this question by showing some key charts on: who is exporting, what's happening to export demand and how things have varied by sector.
