China Accounts For 94% Of U.S. Fireworks Imports
And though America is supposed to witness a much quieter fourth of July this year, 40,700 tons of fireworks worth $100 million have been imported by April of this year. Most of the bottle rockets, Roman candles and other fireworks arriving in the country trace their roots to China. Last year, China accounted for 94 per cent of all U.S. fireworks imports, totalling about $336 million, according to World City website.

Ironically, one guy drives fireworks around the Pacific, and his name is Ding Yan Zhong, a Chinese businessman. Often known as "Mr. Ding," his companies account for around 70% of pyrotechnics entering the U.S. and on average 72 of his containers enter the country every single day. While China accounts for a large part of the fireworks trade by far, the United States is relying on imports from many other countries. Spain comes second with almost $5 million in import value, a tiny amount compared to China.
