Internationalisation stages of traditional SMEs: Increasing, decreasing and re-increasing commitment to foreign markets

The authors analyse the internationalisation paths of five French SMEs operating in traditional manufacturing industries. The empirical study is mainly based on 66 interviews. The findings indicate that the internationalisation process of SMEs continues to follow several stages, but that their commitment to foreign markets may increase, decrease and re-increase. The identified stages, which can be triggered by internal and external factors, reflect characteristics of different internationalisation models proposed in the literature.
