Figure 4 shows EU exports. As is the case for imports of medical products, just five export partners dominate but to a lesser extent, representing between 46 % (mouth-nose protection) and 60 % (spectacles and visors). The United States (US) is the largest destination for EU exports, representing between 17 % (garments) and 39 % (spectacles), followed by Russia and Japan, and Hong Kong. It is worth noting that none of the next five top export destinations are least developed countries.
