Why do businesses expand internationally?

Many businesses, regardless of their size, seek to grow and improve their profits, and one way of achieving this is to expand on an international level. Doing this requires strategic planning and consideration of factors such as cultural differences, language and legislation.

Some reasons why companies seek to expand internationally are: 

Companies looking for rapid expansion

A company that starts operations or has collected funds from a network investment may be in need of fast expansion and growth while continuing to generate profits in a sustainable way, so looking outside their local market can be a good opportunity.

International demand

Thanks to the global reach of digital marketing campaigns, many companies are reaching and receiving international clients. In order to satisfy the demand in the new market, companies have to organize personnel and plan an effective strategy in the new territory.

New markets

Some companies have products or services that are not easily found in any other market, thus garnering high demand for the product or service. By establishing themselves in new territories where the demand is high, companies can gain a market share and increase their growth.

Favorable business climate

There are moments of economic stability and growth in international countries, and those can be favorable moments for expansion into those countries. Plus, there might be Government incentives or lower labor costs compared to the local market that are favorable for expanding operations.

Cost savings

Many companies decide to venture into a new market to save on costs. Today, in many developing countries the labor force is mostly young and educated and the labor costs are lower than in many developed countries. This is why some companies choose to have their operations in these countries and market their products or services around the world.

Company’s second chance

Companies that are in trouble in their local market due to the market for their products or services being flooded or tough competition may find a second chance when entering a new market.
