The Facts About Exporting [Infographic] by NIST MEP
With the weak dollar and rapid growth in emerging economies, export sales are the fastest growing segment of the market.
Exports are critical to the American economy: they stimulate economic growth, help to balance the trade deficit, and create jobs. For manufacturers, they open up new markets: 95 percent of the world’s consumers live outside of the U.S. And while increasing sales is a top priority for many manufacturers, exporting also helps businesses to be more competitive and successful. Diversifying globally protects firms from slow-downs in any one country. International networking can lead to the development of new processes, technologies, skills, and product applications. And engaging with customers overseas also spurs innovation.
