Imports by Country
From January to March 2021 the main buyer of tractors in Central America was Guatemala with $7.7 million, followed by Panama with $4.9 million, in Costa Rica $4.4 million, El Salvador with $3.6 million, Honduras with $2.8 million and Nicaragua with $1 million.

For the semester in question, Panama was the only country in the region that reported a decrease in its foreign purchases, registering a year-on-year variation of -19.9%.

USA and Mexico, Main Sellers
From January to March of this year, 48% of the value imported from Central America came from the USA, 25% from Mexico, 8% from Brazil, 4% from India, 3% each from Italy and Canada, 2% from China, Germany with 2% and 1% each from Japan and the United Kingdom.

In terms of imported value, tractors from Italy have lost share in regional purchases, because during the first half of 2013 they cornered 10% of the total traded and since then they have been on the decline, during the 2021 period the share fell to 3%.

Variation of Regional Imports
Between the first three months of 2021 and the same period of 2020 the value imported into the region increased 59%, going from $24 million to $39 million.
