Germany is leading producer and net exporter of wool felt. Its exports amounted to 20,8 mil. EUR in 2017, three times more exports than Italy, the second largest exporter. Exporting power of Germany has stabilized in a four year period, evident on its share of exports: 37,3% in 2015, 31,2% in 2014, 30,9% in 2013.
The United States of America (USA) increased the export volume by more than 120% (507 tons) in 2017 in comparison to 2016 (226 tons). Exports of other felt producers remained below 500 ton level in 2015, including India, Mexico and Spain. Exports of the USA in 2015 equaled to 3,2 mil.

As evident from the historical data, leading states continue to be the same nations and their positions has not changed very much.
