Why should you export?

  • Increase profitability, and sales. On average, businesses that export are more profitable than those who do not
  • Diversify risks selling to a wider geographical spread that lessens the impact from local downturns.
  • Economies of scale and lower production costs. Exporting allows you to take advantage of economies of scale.
  • Knowledge and skills are transferred from buyers to domestic firms when they start exporting.
  • Increased Lifetime of Product or Service, by staggering the launch in different locations. So, as the product reaches maturity at home you can launch elsewhere.
