Whilst many people use electronic items as part of their day to day life, others have very little contact with electronics. This is particularly the case if someone has no electricity supply, or an insecure electricity supply

The United States is a major net importer of electronics, people living there spend US$47 billion per year on imported electronics.

North American territories import (US$ net) almost half of all electronics traded worldwide. North African territories, with a similar total population size to that of North America, import only around 5% of the electronics imported (net) by North American territories.

"Andorra was born of commerce and lives by commerce. It is a nation of merchants ... people don't just come to ski, they come shopping." Christian Perez, 1999

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net imports of electronics (in US$) that are received there. Net imports are imports minus exports. When exports are larger than imports the territory is not shown.
