International marketing is important for most companies because business has become globalized. Globalization is the growing interdependence of national economies- involving primarily customers, producers, suppliers and governments in different markets.

International marketing reflects the trend of firms selling and distributing products and services in many countries around the world. International marketing (which takes place all around us every day) offers new opportunities and challenges and has a major effect on our lives.

For many years, the globalization of markets, caused by the convergence of tastes across borders, was thought to result in very large multinational enterprises that could use their advantage in scale economies to introduce world-standardized products successfully. However, the bigger and more open the world economy becomes, the smaller and middle-sized companies will dominate.
