Israel’s dynamic and diverse market offers U.S. exporters opportunities in a wide variety of sectors. Its high-tech, pro-American business community is familiar with U.S. business norms, and a multitude of U.S. firms are already doing business in Israel.
Hi-tech and defense dominate Israel's trade numbers, and Israel remains a global center for hi-tech design and R&D. Hi-tech continues to provide opportunities for U.S.-Israel commercial partnerships, specifically in ICT technologies, safety and security equipment and services, natural gas and renewable energy technologies, defense equipment, medical technologies and biotechnology products. Power generation and education/training also represent good opportunities. U.S.-Israeli commercial linkages often consist of U.S. firms providing electronic inputs which Israeli firms integrate into final products destined for re-export. Road technology and infrastructure projects could offer millions of dollars worth of export opportunities for U.S. firms over the next five years, especially since Israel adopted U.S. standards in intelligent transportation systems. Recent offshore gas discoveries have the potential of dramatically transforming Israel’s energy economy by making Israel an energy exporter; $ Billions will likely be spent over the next 10 years to develop this resource.
