Market entry strategies

Secure growth and competitive position by global
sales and global sourcing

  • The market entry in Asia and Eastern Europe offers enterprises great chances, however, also entails risks:

  • Through new sales offices, companies can generate a considerable increase in sales. By global sourcing and shift of production they can profit from the favourable production costs of Asia and Eastern Europe and thus reach a considerable cost reduction for the finishing in Western Europe or the USA.

  • However the risks of such far-reaching decisions by individual functions like sales or purchasing for the entire enterprise are often not taken into account and prepared enough.

  • A good knowledge of the local rules of the game, the cultural differences, the administrative processes and the authority system as well as the tax and legal possibilities and restrictions is decisive for a successful market entry.
