Why Sell into Germany?

The German economy is the fifth largest in the world and is the largest consumer market in the EU accounting for one-fifth of the EU GDP. Germany is the largest European trading partner of the U.S. and the sixth largest market for U.S. exports. Germany’s “social market” economy largely follows market principles, but with a considerable degree of government regulation and wide-ranging social welfare programs. Germany’s geographic location at the center of the EU make it a cornerstone around which many U.S. firms seek to build their European and worldwide expansion strategies.
