With a growth of 13% in volume and 39.2 % in value, NAFTA continues to progress, confirming its leadership in terms of volume, with 67.7 million bottles shipped in 2015, and maintaining its first place in terms of value. This excellent performance largely resulted from a continued rise of exports to the United States, which reached their highest historic level in 2015 (65.3 million bottles).

After a year of mixed results in 2014, the Far East renewed its growth with a rebound of 8.4% in both volume and value, for a total of more than 50.6 million bottles shipped to the zone during 2015. The large increase of VSOP exports to China (70% of the shipments made are to China) greatly contributed to these results.

Representing a little over 40% of exported volume, the VSOP category also showed a significant upturn with +13.1% in volume and +28.2% in value. This increase of exports for both the VS and VSOP categories positively offset the decrease in exports of the aged categories in volume (-4.7%), a category which nonetheless enjoyed a growth +8.1% in value.
