Superstar exporters, selling 10 or more products in 10 or more overseas markets, are the engines of national exports in many countries. For policy makers concerned with growing the value of exports, it makes sense to think about how to encourage the growth of new superstars, specifically by supporting existing exporters to scale up and diversify their export operations.

The available empirical evidence offers insights for policy on how this goal might be achieved, shedding light on how firms exporting a range of products to a range of markets emerge and behave, and assessing what we know about the efficacy of export support and promotion initiatives.
