Led by U.S.-based companies’ exports to emerging foreign markets, U.S. global trade is expected to rise 4.7 percent annually over the course of the next 15 years according to analysts. During the next 5 years, U.S. exports are expected to increase by more than 8 percent annually to trading partners Brazil, Peru and Turkey.
