The total import value increased by 14% since June 2022. This growth is significantly lower than the 37% year-on-year high registered in August 2022. Not since December 2021 has the annual import value growth been below 14%.

Aquaculture imports saw the annual highest growth, with the import value going up 37.6%.

Fuel imports increased by DKK 485.4 million (28.2%), mainly due to higher prices. This is almost half the annual growth registered in July 2022.

Imports for household consumption continue to rise despite rising consumer prices. However, this growth has slowed down recently. Imports for household consumption have not seen significant year-on-year import value growth since October 2021.
