Brazil’s economy grew by 1.1 percent in 2018. The macroeconomic performance maintained a modest pace but is expected to be accelerated by reforms and trade liberalization in the following years, as these topics are priorities in the government agenda. In 2018, imports of consumer-oriented and intermediate products by Brazil were valued at US$4 billion and US$2.8 billion, respectively. The United States was able to maintain its market share of 6 percent in the consumer-oriented category while in the intermediate group the country gained one percentage point, up to 11 percent. Even in a slow growth scenario, exports from the United States to Brazil have room to grow, capturing market share from competitors.
