The decade-long boom in Chinese commodities imports will be rocked by the shifting shape of Chinese growth. In particular, a significant slowdown in China's economy and an end to the unprecedented multiyear construction boom will dramatically alter the country's demand for commodities imports. Nonetheless, thanks to rising incomes and government policy, imports of certain commodities will remain resilient and defy broad weakness in the overall economy. These trends will have major implications for countries and companies involved in the production, processing and transportation of commodities to China.
