THE BRITISH EXPORT AWARDS

INCLUDING THE EXPORTING POWER 100

Honouring exceptional organisations and leadership across Britain’s leading export sectors.

The Exceptional Organisations and Leadership British Mark is both a seal of approval and the benchmark achievement for the online sector’s highest-performing organisations. It is a standard of excellence, an agreed rating for companies who are doing something exceptionally well.

In any society, the presence of highly successful organisations able to create and exercise a wealth of power and influence is a fundamental necessity. These are the exporting innovators who, either through position, or personality, exercise a significant power that influences events and sets parameters in the conduct of their organisation, the climate of political debate, and the shaping of new ideas.

The Exceptional Organisations and Leadership publication and British Export Awards provide an invaluable insight into those companies who have adopted truly robust exporting strategies and are pushing the boundaries of international product innovation. The awards will showcase the most ambitious, successful and cutting-edge companies operating within the UK and will highlight the exceptional organisations and leadership teams powering the rise of British exports worldwide.

2019 WAS A RECORD BREAKING YEAR FOR UK EXPORTS

Prior to the Covid-19 crisis the UK had experienced 45 consecutive months of annual export growth on a rolling annual basis.

UK companies exported £689.0 billion worth of goods and services across the globe – up by 5.0% on 2018

Based on the average exchange rate for 2019, the British pound depreciated by -19.7% against the US dollar since 2015 and declined by -4.5% from 2018 to 2019. The UK’s weaker local currency make British exports paid for in stronger US dollars relatively less expensive for international buyers.

The latest available country-specific data shows that 67.9% of products exported from UK were bought by importers in: the United States (15.5% of the global total), Germany (9.9%), France (6.7%), Netherlands (6.5%), China (6.4%), Ireland (5.9%), Belgium (3.6%), Switzerland (3.3%), Spain (2.9%), Italy (2.7%), Hong Kong (2.4%) and the United Arab Emirates (2.1%).

From a continental perspective, over half of the United Kingdom exports by value were delivered to fellow European countries while 23.2% were sold to Asian importers. The UK shipped another 17.3% worth of goods to North American importers. Smaller percentages went to Africa (2.3%), Oceania (1.4%) led by Australia and New Zealand, then Latin America excluding Mexico but including the Caribbean (1.3%).

THE WORLDS LEADING EXPORT INNOVATORS

The UK is an exporting superpower and UK companies are exporting record levels of goods and services.  As a newly independent trading nation, we will strike new trade deals with key partners across the world, open up new markets and make it even easier for our businesses to meet global demand.
