Top Markets Reports
The International Trade Administration's Top Markets Series is meant to help exporters determine their next export market by comparing opportunities across borders. Each report ranks future export opportunities within a particular industry based on a sector-specific methodology. The reports provide a detailed assessment of the competitiveness landscape within a sector, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing U.S. exporters in key markets.

Defense Products

Our Industry & Analysis specialists have developed a toolkit for defense exporters, particularly those who are new-to-market or new-to-export.  The following two reports review opportunities for U.S. defense companies to further develop and promote global exports and uncover strategic growth markets.

Defense Exporters Toolkit

The Top Markets Report on Defense Products and the Defense Export Handbook are two excellent tools that exporters of defense products will want to review when considering new export opportunities.
