U.S. businesses in the past were not required to look beyond America’s shores to be successful because domestic consumption in the U.S. was large enough. But that has now changed.  In the coming decade there will be much lower growth in the U.S. and much higher growth abroad.

This means that the U.S. is no longer the consuming giant in the world.  In fact, in 2010 the U.S. will account for only 27 percent of total global consumption vs emerging markets at 34 percent – roughly reverse of their shares eight years ago.

According to a recent report from the National Association of Manufacturers, American manufacturers are the least likely of the top 15 world economies to export.  Moreover, only 4 percent of all American firms and only 15 percent of all American manufacturing firms do any exporting at all.

This doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with American firms, it’s just that most never had to look beyond America’s shores because domestic consumption in the U.S. was large enough for most firms. But that has now changed.  In the coming decade it’s much lower growth in the U.S. and much higher growth abroad.


The difference in the next decade

will be the rate of global growth among the players.

And the largest growth rates will be in the emerging markets:

Asia, the Middle East and South America.

Consumerism will especially take off in China and India.

The Bottom Line:  Businesses In The U.S. Need to Get Ready!
