Global Markets


The US is the largest economy in the world with a GDP of 17.5 trillion US dollars in 2014. However, 80% of the world’s purchasing power and 95% of its consumers are located outside US borders. The 52 countries we cover had a combined GDP of 56 trillion dollars in 2014.

Exporting is one of the most effective ways to grow your business. Exporting will grow your bottom line, help you consolidate your position in the domestic market and fully use your production capacity.

More U.S. small and medium-sized companies are exporting than ever before. We can help you expand your international operations and grow your business significantly.

Common Misconceptions

  • My Business is too small – FALSE

    Many companies never explored the possibility of exporting because they think their businesses are too small. However of the 300,000 US companies that had significant export operations last year more than 270,000 are small and medium sized and they accounted for about 1/3 of the US exports.

  • Why bother? – WRONG

    More than 50% of the small and medium sized companies with significant export operations drove more than 20% of their annual earnings from exports in 2014. More than 90% of the world’s consumers live outside the United States and the number of people considered “middle-class”, able to purchase imported goods from the United States will reach 1.4 billion in 2014. This is a significant number of customers that represent a large opportunity and should not be ignored.

  • Exporting is too risky – FALSE

    Exporting to some markets, such as Canada, Australia or European Union is no more risky than selling in the US. At Global Distribution Group we always take all the necessary precautions to protect the interest of our clients. Today it’s easier than ever for small US companies to sell products overseas. The possibilities are endless and we help companies take advantage of them.
