The U.S. Bureau of the Census has released its September import-export values for tempered and laminated safety glass.

Mexico remains by and large the largest country from which these safety glass products are imported, with a value of nearly $23 million in September.

Canada remains the largest country to which the United States exports its safety glass products. The number of products going to Germany, the second largest importer of these U.S. products, halved from August to September. Exports to Mexico, in third place, also continue to drop.
