Exporting Basics: Basics

How can I determine if my product or service is needed in other countries?

Before you make the decision to go international make certain that there is a market for your product or service. It is likely that if you have found success in the domestic market, international markets will also have demand for your product or service. To determine what countries may have the most demand, you can research trade flows for your goods or utilize competitive intelligence to locate where similar products or services are being used or complementary products are being sold. State and federal trade development agencies publish trade statistics and country market reports that can help you learn more and make informed decisions.
