South America—a market undergoing unprecedented growth

Once known as a region of economic and political upheaval, South America has experienced unprecedented growth as demand for its raw materials, oil, agricultural goods, automotive and aerospace parts and other commodities have greatly increased.

China, in particular, has become a major player within the region. In fact, China recently surpassed the United States as Brazil’s top trading partner, the second largest trade partner with Argentina and Peru and third largest partner with Venezuela. Driven by their need for raw materials, China’s trade with South America has increased significantly. For the first half of 2010, South American exports to China increased by 44%.

While trade has increased, the region’s infrastructure has not been able to maintain the same pace. Congestion at both airports and ports, lack of roads and antiquated rail networks are impeding South America’s economic growth and may be a major issue especially when Brazil hosts the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.
