CHAPTER 19
OTHER PRODUCTS TRADE

Other Products exports and imports include one-eighth of all Non-Manufactures trade, and is the fourth largest category. The product group accounts for only 4.4% of total merchandise trade, ranking ninth. In affiliate related trade, multinational companies are involved in 44% of Other Products trade, compared to 52% for all Non-Manufactures. Wholesale affiliates are the dominant industry group, accounting for one-third of Other Products trade.


DEFINITION OF OTHER PRODUCTS

As defined by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the "Other Products" foreign trade classification consists of products in the SITC 4 and 9 categories. This is a residual and miscellaneous trade classification, and is usually placed at the end of the product groups [ BEA 199021-24]. Under some trade definitions, SITC 9 is a part of manufactured goods trade [ Bailey and Bowden 57-59]. However, since the two SITC categories are combined in the benchmark data, the Other Products trade must be placed with non-manufactured goods. Other Products trade includes the following products [ BEA 199024):

Animal and Vegetable Oils, Fats, and Waxes, and Commodities N.E.C. (SITC codes 4 and 9)
Crude and refined, edible and inedible animal and vegetable fats and oils (exclude margarine, shortening, and other prepared edible fats, which are in SITC 0)
Military apparel and footwear
Armored vehicles and ordnance, except for shotgun shells, other hunting and sporting ammunition, and nonmilitary arms
