With the US-China trade war well underway, exports of US technology products and services hit $338 billion in 2018, up 2.5 percent from the previous year, according to a CompTIA analysis. US technology product and services exports to China lag imports by a wide margin.
That technology trade imbalance illustrates why the US-China trade battle endures. The US simply has less to lose than China. CompTIA said US technology products exports to China were up 3.9 percent in 2018 to $17.9 billion. Technology services exports to China from the US were $2.2 billion in 2017, the most recent year available.
In contrast, the US imported $187.7 billion in technology products and services from China in 2017.
