Meginástæðan var gjaldþrot WOW air í mars 2019 ásamt fækkun áfangastaða hjá öðrum flugfélögum. Árið 2019 voru ferðamenn frá Bandaríkjunum 23.4% af heild eða 464.000 farþegar næst á eftir Bretlandi með 13.2%, Þýskalandi með 6.7% og Kína með 5%.

Bandaríkin eru sjötti stærsti innflytjandi þegar kemur að laxi en hluti af innflutningi til BNA fer í vinnslu í Póllandi, Danmörku og Hollandi og þaðan til BNA og markaðurinn þannig nokkuð stærri en tölurnar gefa til kynna.

Export from Iceland to the US (presentation)

United States

  • Tourism from the US to Iceland decreased by 33% between 2019 and 2018 vs a record year in 2018 with close to 700.000 tourists from the US to Iceland. The main reason is the fall of WOW air in March 2019 and other airlines dropping locations in the US. The US accounted for 23.4% (464.000) of the total followed by the UK at 13.2%, Germany at 6.7% and China at 5%. N-America is the largest market area for Iceland with 534.000 passengers in 2019. Just over 50.000 tourists visited Iceland from the US in 2020.
  • Total export between years:
    • 2019-2020 remained status quo between years
    • 2018/2019 increased by 13% from 42 billion to 47 billion ISK
    • 2017/2018 increased by 14.5% from 36 billion ISK 41.5 billion
  • Seafood was 56% of the total export value in 2020
  • There was a decrease in seafood volume by 7.7% in 2019/2020 vs 13% decrease in 2018/2019. Value remained the same.
  • The US accounts for 10% of the total export in value of seafood from Iceland and the US is the third largest importer of Icelandic seafood. The numbers do not include farmed species. The US are the largest importer of farmed Arctic Char and number six when it comes to farmed salmon. A portion of Icelandic salmon is processed in Poland, Denmark and Holland and exported from there to the US, so the market size is to some extent larger than the direct export numbers tell.
  • USD vs ISK (medium currency rate) strengthened by 10% in 2019/2020 vs 13% 2018/2019.
