Whilst not exhibiting the stratospheric increases in China, other key Asian markets provided strong demand and increases for imports. Japan recovered from a dip in demand in 2015 and South Korea continued its steady growth in importance. From what we see demand in these two markets is slightly down at the start of 2017.
Hong Kong posted a large increase, driven of course by Chinese demand, and also assisted by the relative smoothness of transportation through the grey channel. We don’t have official figures yet for the Philippines but our own figures suggest a 15-20% increase.
