Challenges aside, Brazil has made tangible progress in developing a friendlier business environment, and numerous new U.S. companies continue to achieve export success in the country each year. The Commercial Service Brazil (CS Brazil) has prioritized seven sectors for goods with high export potential: energy, infrastructure, health, chemicals, defense and aviation, telecom, and information and communications technology (ICT); and three for services: education, franchising, and fintech. However, given the sheer size and diversity of the Brazilian market, there is potential for export success in practically any industry. U.S. exporters are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Brazilian market and take advantage of trade promotion services and programs available through the U.S. Commercial Service.

Across five offices located throughout the country, our specialists help U.S. companies identify public and private sector opportunities in these industries and others throughout Brazil. Additional information regarding specific market opportunities available to U.S. companies in the priority sectors listed above can be found in the Leading Sectors portion of the U.S. Exports and Investment chapters. U.S. companies are encouraged to consult the CS Brazil website for the full list of industry sector specialists and contact details.
