Ireland continued its dominance in the global mixture of odoriferous substance trade. In 2014, Ireland exported 133 thousand tonnes of mixtures of odoriferous substances totaling 8,307 million USD, 12% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner was the U.S., where it supplied 25% of its total mixture of odoriferous substance exports in value terms, accounting for 87% of the U.S.'s total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, Ireland was a net exporter of mixtures of odoriferous substances. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was less pronounced.

In 2014, France and Germany were among the other main global suppliers of mixtures of odoriferous substances, and strengthened their positions in the global export structure. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were China (+17% per year) and Singapore (+13% per year).

Ireland's top 5 trading partners in 2014 were the U.S., Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany and Spain, with a combined 56% share of Ireland's mixture of odoriferous substance exports. The share of Mexico increased (+6 percentage points), while the share of the U.S. illustrated negative dynamics (-4 percentage points).
