By spreading your fixed costs over a greater volume of units sold when your production costs remain unchanged means greater profitability $$$ to the bottom line.
Export markets may often be used to sell excess production capacity or maximize the use of expensive capital equipment and or human resources. Exposing staff to foreign customers, competitors and events such as trade shows is an excellent way to build knowledge of latest available technologies and ideas that can be applied and leveraged to improve products, manufacturing processes and service delivery methods.
