Someland’s Main Exports

Free Sample Essay

The given bar chart compares the sales of Someland’s three main exports: International Tourism, Dairy, and Meat Products in 2005 and 2015 as well as projected production for 2025. The units are measured in billions of dollars USD. 

            Overall, each product showed a distinct trend in exports, and in each year, a different product enjoyed the highest sales. Meat product sales has exhibited a falling trend, for instance, while international tourism has been increasing, and both products are projected to continue their respective trends. On the other hand, Someland has managed to significantly boost Dairy export, yet projections indicate a slight decrease in 2025. In addition, in 2005 and 2015, international tourism and dairy products had the highest amounts of exports. In 2025, the former is projected to be the largest export among the three. 

            Among the three products, Dairy exports and International Tourism stayed above $4 billion throughout the period. In 2005, International Tourism (about $6 billion) surpassed Dairy (about $5 billion); however, despite the growth in the exports of both products in 2015, the sales of Dairy products exceeded international tourism by roughly more than a billion to become Someland’s main export, at just below $8 billion, as compared to roughly $7 billion for the former. Surprisingly, in 2025, the amount for international tourism is projected to gain its place back as the principle export, with just below $8 billion, while the figures for dairy products will be dropping to between $7 and $8 billion USD.

            On the other hand, meat products generated a lower revenue of $4 billion in 2005 for Someland, which was the highest. From then on, the exports shrank in a steady downward trend to reach about $3.5 billion in 2015. The country’s meat exports are expected to follow this trend by 2025 and decline further to about $3 billion dollars, which is the lowest projection for that year among the three products.
