Course Master: International Market Access

Description of the Subject (International market research):

The first step that a potential export enterprise should take is to estimate sales potential in each foreign market. There are more of 200 potential markets in the World, which implies the analysis of a huge amount of information. Many Export Directors select markets, which share cultural proximity (Spanish exporters seek to approach Latin America markets, Portuguese exporters to Brazil or Angola).

The exporter can use several parameters to describe the potential market:

  1. Total population
  2. Potential market (segment of the population interest in buy -or import- the product or service)
  3. Available market (segment of the population who have enough money to purchase the product or service)
  4. Qualified available market
  5. Target market (segment of the market defined in the marketing plan)
  6. Penetrated market (people of the company in the target market who have to buy the product or service)

A PEST (Political, Economic, Social, and Technological) analysis is an evaluation of external macro environment that affects the business. External factors can be threats or opportunities; normally they are beyond the control of the exporter.
