The International Trade Centre's (ITC) Market Analysis Tools provide users with export and import statistics of more than 220 countries and territories for more than 5,300 internationally traded products. Five online tools; Trade Map, Market Access Map, Investment Map, Trade Competitiveness Map and Standards Map, collectively improve international-trade transparency and enable companies and trade support institutions to identify export and import opportunities and compare market-access requirements. The tools help policy makers to monitor national trade performance and prepare for trade negotiations.
A challenge for exporters is the lack of reliable trade information on markets to remain competitive, scan opportunities for new markets, and diversify or value-add to their existing product range.
Importers seek to optimize the potential offered by preferential trade agreements and to improve the efficiency of their sourcing by working with competitive supplier countries. The International Trade Centre (ITC) addresses these issues with a suite of market analysis tools and related market data and information sources. http://www.intracen.org/itc/market-info-tools/.
