The economy is growing, but so is the competition in the domestic market. One thing is certain: Canadian companies can no longer wait for customers to come to them. Is now the right time to grab the bull by the horns, and start selling more proactively outside of Canada?

 
 

There’s a lot of consumer demand across the globe. Unemployment is low, and people appear ready to spend for the first time in a while. In the U.S. and Europe, customers are looking to buy your products and services. Although the U.S. economy is driving the global growth story, emerging markets, such as India, continue to shine.

EDC’s latest Global Economic Outlook can help you understand the ups and downs of the economy around the world to help you reap the benefits of company growth.

The Global Economic Outlook comes out twice each year, with forecasts relevant to your business, including economic growth, currencies and commodity prices. If you’re thinking about selling to customers in the U.S., in traditional markets like Europe or in emerging markets like Mexico and China, read this comprehensive overview of how EDC’s economists see the world economy shaping up over the next two years.

 
 

Economic growth looks solid. But will it stay that way and is it happening evenly across the globe? With pros and cons on both sides of the scale, is now the best time to seek out new markets?

 
 

There are so many considerations when looking to expand your business internationally: Currency fluctuations, economic growth and commodity prices are a few of the indicators we dive into our autumn Global Economic Outlook.

Our latest Global Economic Outlook is an essential planning tool that can help you make more informed business decisions. It explains how fundamentals appear to be in place for continued business growth in many markets, and opportunities abound. Pent-up demand over the last decade is starting to trigger spending and investment across various markets and sectors. Unemployment is low, the U.S. seems to be in full recovery mode, and there are positive indications that some emerging markets, such as India, will continue to flourish.

Of course, when determining where to invest your business dollars, you must also account for softer growth in some areas and the turbulence that increased interest rates could mean for certain emerging markets.

To help you decide where best to take your business, get the Global Economic Outlook and dive deep into the numbers that are relevant to your company. Whether you’re doing business in the U.S., in other traditional export markets, or in emerging markets, the Global Economic Outlook gives you a comprehensive overview of how EDC’s economists see the world economy shaping up over the next two years.

 
 

As an experienced exporter, you’re aware of trending changes: economic growth is rising — but so are interest rates. You’re already gauging whether conditions are right for your next international investment, and forming your own opinions about whether the effects of protectionism are overstated.

 
 

On the surface, the numbers are a bit disconcerting. Unemployment rates in Europe are at, or are very close to, cyclical lows. In Europe, industrial capacity utilization has been surging since mid-2016, and is fast moving in on previous peak levels. While these are good problems to have, they do look like a classic late-cycle burst that has never ended well in the past. Tightness inevitably results in inflation, leading to the ultimate tightening of interest rates.

Doomsayers already have their recession clocks set and humming. The most basic argument is timing: it has been about 10 years since the last recession, and we are due.

But as a businessperson who always wants to dig a little deeper, you know there are strong counter-arguments. Find out what those are in EDC’s latest Global Economic Outlook and learn whether now is the right time for you invest in new markets.

The Global Economic Outlook gives you the added insight and forecasts you need to enhance your own knowledge of global trade. It’s a bi-annual report providing macroeconomic forecasts relevant to your business such as economic growth, currencies and commodity prices. Whether you’re doing business in the U.S., in other traditional export markets, or in emerging markets, the Global Economic Outlook gives you a comprehensive overview of how EDC’s economists see the world economy shaping up over the next two years.
