Machines are imported (net) to 90% of the territories in the world. The Middle Eastern territories of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates generate the highest per person US$ value of net imports. Imports to these two territories are the only per person net imports that exceed US$1000 a year.
The category of machines is so broad that items with many different uses are included, ranging from food production to firearms and ammunition. The biggest component of this category is non-electrical machinery parts. These may be imported then constructed in the receiving territory - or may be imported for repairs.
