Commerce Department Releases New Reports Ranking Top Export Markets to Help U.S. Companies Win Globally – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Tuesday, July 14, 2015

New Sector-Specific Reports Further Advance Commerce’s Data Sharing among Clients and Other Federal Agencies

U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker today released 19 new reports designed to help U.S. exporters identify their next export market by comparing opportunities across borders. As part of the International Trade Administration’s (ITA) new Top Markets Series, each report projects and ranks future export opportunities within a particular industry, providing in-depth commentary on key opportunities, trends, and challenges facing U.S. companies who export across the globe.

“The Obama administration is committed to providing exporters with the diverse, data-driven market intelligence they need to increase their competitiveness in the global marketplace,” said Secretary Pritzker. “Data is the fuel that powers the 21st century economy, driving innovation and increasing economic growth. By combining data with the specialized industry knowledge of our analysts and the on-the-ground expertise of our staff in more than 75 international markets, these Top Markets Reports are an important tool to help exporters more strategically deploy resources and win in overseas markets.”

From education exports to textiles and apparel, to aircraft parts, environmental technologies and renewable energy, the Top Markets Series collectively includes more than 200 country case studies and sector snapshots. The reports’ lead authors are members of ITA’s Industry & Analysis team, which provides unique sector expertise for export promotion, trade policy, and foreign direct investment strategies that strengthen the global competitiveness of U.S. businesses. ITA will update and release new reports for the Top Markets Series annually.

“Our team stands ready to help American exporters consider opportunities, address challenges, and build a more successful export strategy,” said ITA’s Assistant Secretary for Industry and Analysis Marcus D. Jadotte. “We are confident that the data and analysis offered in the Top Markets Series will help exporters make more informed export decisions.”
