Of worldwide export earnings, 3.2% is from medicine exports. Here, medicines include medical equipment.
Territories in Western Europe receive 74% of all earnings from exports of medicines. These territories account for 91% of net medicine exports (US$). Ireland has the highest value of exports (US$ net). Much of the Ireland trade is the export of imports.
Non-European net exporters include China, India, Mexico and Singapore. India is a major source of medicines. Indian medicines are sold more cheaply than European medicines, therefore India’s export earnings are lower, so India appears smaller on this map.
