STAN Bilateral Trade Database by Industry and End-use category (BTDIxE) provides values of imports and exports of goods broken down by industrial sectors and by end-use categories. BTDIxE was designed to extend the BTD database which provided bilateral trade in goods by industry only. BTDIxE allows, for example, insights into the patterns of trade in intermediate goods between countries to track global production networks and supply chains, and it helps to address policy issues such as trade in value added and trade in tasks.
The database presents estimates of bilateral flows (imports and exports) of goods from 1990 to the latest available year; 2015 is included when available (the latest year shown is subject to the availability of underlying product-based annual trade statistics). Reporters are the OECD member countries and a large number of Non-OECD economies, including the BRIICS: Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, People's Republic of China and South Africa; other selected G20 and Asian economies; as well as major African nations. A snapshot of the database's coverage is available in BTDIxE major reporters.
It should be noted that starting from mid-2012, the OECD and the United Nations agreed to centralise the data collection and processing procedures within UNSD Comtrade.
The list of partners covers the OECD countries, more than a hundred of Non-member economies as well as the partners World, Rest of the World and Unspecified. Trade flows are divided into economic activities based on the Revision 4 of ISIC, and 9 end-use categories including capital goods, intermediate goods and household consumption.
