Singapore’s Non-Oil Domestic Exports Decline for 12th Consecutive Month


Singapore’s non-oil domestic exports (NODX) continued its downward trajectory in September, marking the 12th straight month of decline. Both electronics and non-electronics shipments saw a decrease across most of Singapore’s top 10 markets.

According to Enterprise Singapore, NODX contracted by 13.2% in September compared to the same period last year, slightly surpassing the median estimate of eight economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal, which predicted a 12.7% decline. In August, NODX had dropped by a revised 22.5% year on year.

On a month-over-month seasonally adjusted basis, NODX showed improvement, with a 11.1% increase in September. This presented an improvement over the revised contraction of 6.6% in August.

The decline in September was driven by a slide in electronics exports by 11.6%, although it was a slowdown from the previous month’s contraction of 21.1%. Non-electronics exports also fell, declining by 13.6% in September, decelerating from the revised 22.9% contraction seen in the prior month.

Enterprise Singapore identified non-monetary gold as one of the main contributors to the contraction in non-electronics domestic exports, plummeting by 59.6%. Pharmaceuticals also dropped by 31.2%, while food preparations slumped by 40.0%.

Here is a breakdown of the year-on-year change in NODX to Singapore’s top markets for August and September:

  • Taiwan: -34.9% (September) / -31.5% (August)
  • Indonesia: -45.2% (September) / -27.9% (August)
