And while America is supposed to be experiencing a much quieter July 4th this year, April of this year has imported 40,700 tons of fireworks worth $100 million. Most of the bottle rockets, roman candles, and other fireworks that arrive in China trace their roots. Last year, according to the World City website, China accounted for 94 per cent of all U.S. fireworks imports, totaling about $336 million.

Ironically, one guy drives fireworks across the Pacific, and his name is Chinese businessman Ding Yan Zhong. His businesses, also known as "Mr. Ding," account for around 70 per cent of pyrotechnics entering the U.S. and an average of 72 of its containers entering the country every day. Although China accounts for much of the fireworks trade, the U.S. depends on imports from many other countries. Spain is in second place with an import value of approximately $5 million, a low amount compared to China.
