 The Consulate General of Iceland in New York put information about export from Iceland to the US and Canada in 2014 on its website, it is in Icelandic, but here are the main points in English.   

The focus is on seafood export but you will find the total export in the excel documents as well as few categories that have been tracked through the years and have been of interest to Iceland, the market or are new categories like water and alcoholic beverages that have sharply increased between years or over a period of time.  Some categories we do not track in specific, like hardware, since the information does not tell what kind of hardware the category includes and in most cases and those numbers are easy to pick out of the total export sheet.
