  • MARKET DATA AND INFORMATION

  • Market Data and Information
  • A key challenge for exporters is the scarcity of reliable trade information on markets.

    They need to stay on top of competitive conditions in their current markets, scan opportunities for new markets, and look for opportunities to diversify or value-add to their existing product range.
  • At the same time importers worldwide also seek to optimize the potential offered by preferential trade agreements and improve the efficiency of their sourcing by scanning for new and competitive supplier countries. ITC addresses these issues with its suite of market analysis tools and related market data and information sources.

    ITC’s Market Analysis Tools help users examine the export and import statistics of over 220 countries and territories to better understand supply and demand trends for around 5,300 internationally traded products. The tools are unique in product detail, as well as in breadth of geographic coverage – particularly for developing and least developed countries. More than 250,000 users in 224 countries and territories have registered to use the tools. They include enterprises, governments, educational institutions and most of the world’s top 100 companies
