Computer exports by United States of America have greatly dwindled. This comes on the background of rising Asian personal computer manufacturers to top positions in the PC manufacture business. Taiwan based Acer has exemplified and portrayed the rising of Asian PC manufacturers by becoming the second largest PC manufacturer in the world. Asian PC manufacturers are becoming a force to reckon in the world of computers. Countries like Japan, China, Malaysia and Taiwan have greatly increased the PC production and export. The United States seems to lag behind in computer production and this is proved by the data on trade which shows a negative net export value implying that the nation imports more computers than it exports (Jac 2009).


Data from the World Trade Organization shows that the United States had a negative net export value of -$116953803854 in 2006. The countries computer exports were $13675010722, the imports were $253702944576 (International Trade Statistics, 2007). The subtraction of the imports from exports yields a negative net export value of -$116953803854 implying that the United States makes more imports than exports of computers. Chinas exports in 2006 totaled to $287,331,428,697 and the imports were $197,947,756,336 and this presents a positive $89,383,672,361 net export value which implies that the country imports less and exports more computers than it imports.


Japans exports in 2006 amounted to $99,490,079,376 and the imports were $68,656,508,923 and this presents a positive $30,833,570,453 net export value which implies that the country imports less and exports more computers than it imports. Koreas exports in 2006 totaled to $83,670,930,502 and the imports were $40,278,581,684 and this presents a positive $43,392,348,818 net export value which implies that the country imports less and exports more computers than it imports.


Malaysias exports in 2006 totaled to $67,874,315,961 and the imports were $46,061,509,699 and this presents a positive $21,812,806,262 net export value which implies that the country imports less and exports more computers than it imports. In 1997 the same nations had the following net export values on computers $4,797,388,544, $53,182,633,984, $13,090,863,616, $12,260,208,384 and -$32,849,991,680 for China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and America respectively. Notably, the U.S still had a negative net export value in 1997 meaning that the U.S was still importing more computers than it was exporting (International Trade Statistics, 2007).


A part from the fact that the nation has had a negative net export there is a tremendous increase in the negative net export value -$32,849,991,680 in 1997 to -$116,952,803,854 in 2006. This increase means that the nations imports of computers has increased greatly over this period of time whilst the exports have not been increasing. In 1997 the nation exported $118,884,902,912 and in 2006 it exported $136,750,140,722


Meaning that its production has just slightly increased compared and this data is a clear indication that nation is lagging behind in the production of computers. The analysis of the changes is presented in the table below:

Country

2006 Net export

Percentage Change

China

$4,797,388,544

 

$89,383,672,361

U.S.A

-$32,849,991,680

 

-$116,952,803,854

 

256 % increase in the negative

 

According to the analysis China experienced the biggest increase in the production of computers with an increase of 1763.1% increase, Korea had an increase of 231.5% increase, and Malaysia had 77.9%. On the other hand, Japans net exports declined by 42%. The United States of America experienced a tremendous increase in the deficit of net exports and the negative net exports value increased by a 256%.


Conclusion

Far East Asian nations have experienced great increase in personal computer production and subsequent imports. These nations have experienced an increase in the value of imports made, except for Japan whose imports increased from $41,899,857,920


On the other hand the United States had a negative net export value which tremendously increased by 256% percent, implying that the nations exports of computers was not increasing, whereas; its imports were increasing tremendously. The whole picture shows that the use is completely lagging behind and by far in computer exportation.  According to the analysis China experienced the biggest increase in the production of computers with an increase of 1763.1% increase, Korea had an increase of 231.5% increase, and Malaysia had 77.9%. On the other hand, Japans net exports declined by 42%.
