Gaining market share is no longer just a national issue but is now an international one. According to the ICC, in 2018, 84% of SMEs and ETIs said they wanted to increase their turnover through exports. This opportunity allows to diversify its clientele by reaching new markets in Europe or on other continents but also to establish its brand image abroad and thus to gain visibility.
Opening up to the international market means opening up new business opportunities with access to new markets and therefore new consumers. However, entering a new market means starting from scratch, facing a totally different situation than on the national market. This requires an analysis of demand to better understand the expectations of these new consumers, a benchmark of the competition to know its new competitors and a market analysis to be able to know the market or even anticipate its evolution and take advantage of it.
The international perception study is aimed at all companies seeking to find out how foreign consumers welcome its products. Moreover, it allows us to know how foreign consumers feel about the company's brand image in order to adapt it if necessary. Finally, within the framework of a partnership, this makes it possible to evaluate its international relevance and then, thanks to the recommendations proposed by ESCadrille, to rethink it to make it more efficient.
Exporting internationally means offering products or services to a more diversified demand. Thus, it becomes imperative to know customer satisfaction for a given product according to the geographical area in order to adapt as well as possible to the culture of demand.
ESCadrille's international satisfaction study provides relevant recommendations to strengthen your presence on the market and improve customer loyalty.
A large group producing vinyl components called on ESCadrille to find out what European companies were asking for for vinyl components.

This subcontracting made it possible to cover 4 geographical areas :
Then, ESCadrille analysed the potential forecasts of the demand for components from these companies to provide operational recommendations on the strategy that could be adopted to gain market share in Europe.
