Cosmetics Make for Beautiful Exports!December 5, 2013
Elisa Martucci is a Commercial Specialist with the International Trade Administration’s Commercial Service, based in Rome, Italy.
The beauty of U.S. cosmetics isn’t just in the eye of the beholder; it’s also in the eye of the economy. Cosmetics and beauty products are significant contributors to American exports and support jobs throughout the country.
U.S. exports of cosmetics products have increased every year since 2009, and the International Trade Administration’s Commercial Service wants to help more American businesses in this sector find success overseas.
One way we’re helping is by hosting a series of webinars on how businesses in the cosmetics and beauty products industry can increase their exports to Europe. We hosted webinars for 33 companies looking to do business in the Nordic region and Eastern Europe, and we have another webinar focusing on Western Europe on Dec. 11.
Our specialists based throughout the continent help businesses like yours increase exports every day. We can provide unmatched provide insight into the European market, including:
- European distribution channels;
- Insights on sales and marketing;
- Guidance on regulations, including labeling and documentation;
- And opportunities to promote your products.
Our commercial specialists all over the United States are also available all year to help your company compete in Europe and in markets all over the world.
You may have never considered taking your products overseas before, but I hope you’ll contact our team to learn about opportunities to help your business grow by competing overseas. Cosmetics and beauty products exports were more than $9.5 billion in 2012, and we’re on pace to beat that in 2013.
We want your business to be among those that are increasing exports, finding new markets, enjoying greater profits, and supporting growth.
