U.S. GDP Grow Falls Short of Expectation
Although U.S. has been China’s largest trade partner of fasteners, the nation’s GDP barely grows in first quarters of 2015.
The nation’s economic growth slowed to a crawl in the first quarter, a period marked by severe weather, a soaring dollar that curbed American exports and a steep drop in investment by U.S. energy companies after oil prices tanked.
Gross domestic product expanded by a meager 0.2% annual pace, well below the MarketWatch forecast of a 1.2% gain.
By contrast, the economy grew at a 2.2% rate in the final three months of 2014.
For the most part, consumers continued to spend at modest clip to keep the economy afloat, helped by a sharp drop in inflation that stretched their dollars a little further. Outlays rose 1.9%, down from an unsustainable 4.4% in the prior quarter but just several ticks below the average gain since a U.S. recovery began in mid-2009.
Considering the current situation of U.S. economy, many Chinese fastener companies, while they were keeping their shares in the American markets, showed keen interest in exploring the Southeast Asian markets.
