Every year over $4.1 trillion (US dollars) is spent worldwide on health services including approximately $850 billion (US dollars) that is spent in the pharmaceutical market on drugs and medications. In 2011, it is estimated that global pharmaceutical sales are expected to grow by 5% to 7% to around $880 billion. This growth in sales is led by the 17 so-called "pharmerging countries," which include China, Brazil, Russia, India, Venezuela, Poland and the Ukraine. These "pharmerging countries", are forecast to see their pharmaceutical spending grow at a 15% to 17% rate in 2011, to between $170 billion and $180 billion overall.

Globalization of supply chains in international trade has created a shift in where many component parts are produced. This shift includes the production of electronic components that are used in aircraft, military weapons systems, computers, medical equipment, and other products that are purchased by the United States government through procurement contracts. These electronic components were traditionally manufactured in the United States and Europe, but are now being manufactured in China, Mexico, India, and South America. When these electronic components are fake or substandard parts, false certifications regarding the quality of these electronic components can be the subject of a Qui Tam False Claims Act Whistleblower Reward Lawsuit. These lawsuits encourage whistleblowers including international whistleblowers along the electronic component supply chain to blow the whistle on fake military electronic components, low quality electronic components, and other counterfeit electronic parts.
