Brazilian Small Companies Increasingly Find Clients Overseas

    There was an increase in the number of exporting micro and small sized companies in Brazil. Last year, 345 new companies made their debut in the external market, adding up to a total of 7,443, against 7,098 in 2003.

    These data are part of the research ‘Micro and Small Companies in Brazilian Exports – Brazil and States, 1998/2004’, which was released Wednesday, September 21, by the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (Sebrae) and the Foreign Trade Studies center Foundation (Funcex).


    They represent 62.1% of the total number of industrial companies of all sizes (micro, small, medium and large) that exported in 2004.


    According to the research, there was also an increase in the annual average value exported by the micro and small sized companies between 2003 and 2004, which went from US$ 213,300 to US$ 248,100, an increase in 16.9%.


    Last year, the small sized companies had an increase in 15.1% in the annual average value exported in relation to 2003, whereas the micro sized companies registered an increase by 9.2%. In absolute terms, exports by the micro and small industrial companies had an increase by 22.6% in 2004, in comparison to 2003.


    As well as the increase in exports, the research also shows that the micro and small companies have exported at a greater frequency. From 1998 to 2004, the number of micro companies that started exporting continuously jumped from 315 to 1,232 and the number of small companies went from 1,251 to 2,706.


    In the case of the micro sized companies, continuous exports started to represent 56.2% of the total exported by them last year, against 23% in 1998. Continuous external sales by the small companies, in turn, represented 75.9% of the total exported by them in 2004, against 58.9% in 1998.
