previous | next  

Figure 3.1 is a line chart showing UK production, imports, exports, and apparent consumption since 1999. The chart shows that production and exports have remained very stable since 1999, while imports and apparent consumption dropped sharply in 2008 and again in 2009. Both apparent consumption and imports have recovered since then, although imports remain at a level lower than before 2008.
