Amazon rainforest holds only 0.2% of $200bn market

There is a wide range of products in the Amazon far beyond the usual minerals, forest carbon credits and new drugs of the future. In three years, 64 products compatible with the forest were produced and exported by companies from the nine states that comprise the so-called Legal Amazon. They total almost $300 million a year and there is a lot of potential for growth –these 64 products are a global market of $200 billion.
