Non-oil domestic exports rose 6.8% in December

The climb is mostly attributed to non-electronics sector.

Singapore’s non-oil domestic exports (NODX) rebounded 6.8% in December following its 5% fall in November, according to a report by Enterprise Singapore (ESG).

The growth was primarily due to a 5% YoY spike in the non-electronics sector, which recovered after dropping by 5.3% the month prior.

According to ESG: “Specialised machinery (+30.9%), non-monetary gold (+14.5%), and measuring instruments (+21.4%) contributed the most to the growth in non-electronic NODX.”

Meanwhile, the electronic sector’s NODX increased by 13.7% YoY after posting a 4% plunge in the previous month.

“ICs, parts of PCs, as well as diodes and transistors expanded by 15.7%, 33.8%, and 16.5% respectively, contributing the most to the increase in electronic NODX,” ESG reported.
