349 Secondary Exports 1990

Definition

This map shows which territories were the main exporters of secondary goods by value, in 1990. Exports are measured here in Purchasing Power Parity US dollars. The PPP value takes into account the costs of goods and services in the territory, as such this indicates degree of wealth as the equivalent of what US$ would buy in the United States. In 1990 the value of secondary exports worldwide was US$ 3432 billion.

Secondary exports are all processed and manufactured goods and materials, such as cars and refined oil. That is exports that have been altered from their ‘raw’ state. High-tech items are included here.
