It grew for the fifth consecutive month.
Singapore's non-oil domestic exports (NODX)'s recent growth was partly due to the robust electronics sector, which in March saw a 5.2% improvement in exports.
According to IE Singapore, this followed the 17.2% rise in the previous month. This month's growth is the fifth consecutive month of improvement for electronic NODX.
Integrated circuits, parts of PCs, and consumer electronics grew by 7.8%, 33.9% and 29.9% respectively, and they contributed the most to the growth in electronic domestic exports.
Meanwhile, non-electronic NODX also registered an expansion in the said month. Exports from the segment jumped 20.8%, following the 22.7% increase in the previous month.
Petrochemicals, specialised machinery and structural parts made of iron, steel & aluminium increased by 42.8%, 70.1% and 4,697.5% respectively, contributing the most to the rise in non-electronic NODX.
