This study examines the impact of exchange rate volatility on export volume using Swedish data for the period 2000 to 2015. Specifically, we use the model developed by Udo Broll & Bernhard Eckwert in 1999 assess the impact of the volatility of the Swedish exchange rate vs. 9 main trade partners including Belgium, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Netherlands and U.K. The results show that the effect on both total export volume and bilateral exports volume are all insignificant.
