Overview

The United States is one of Madagascar’s top export markets. Though COVID-19 related trade disruptions caused Madagascar’s exports to the United States to fall by 17 percent from $533.6 million in 2019 to $439.3 million in 2020, it has since recovered to $506 million in 2021.  Vanilla, cloves, essential oils, textiles, nickel, and cobalt comprise the bulk of Madagascar’s exports to the United States and represent about 20 percent of Madagascar’s total exports.  While Madagascar’s exports to the United States have improved significantly in the last five years, imports from the United States have lagged, stalling at around 2.4 percent of total Malagasy imports over the last few years.  In 2021, the United States is the twelfth largest exporter to Madagascar.
