The Degree of Export Intensity of Polish Companies
Krystyna Przybylska

ABSTRACT. This paper examines the relationship between firm size and export intensity of Polish industry firms. Too of the analytical indicators can be used to measure export intensity: export share in the company’s revenue and number of foreign markets which it serves. Yet, the verification of the proposed research hypotheses is not consistent. As regards the first hypothesis which suggests a positive relationship between company size and export intensity, it ought to be noted that in the case of the studied companies, company size has little effect on export intensity. In terms of using revenue as a measure of company size, it may be pointed out that its increase does not significantly affect the growth of export intensity. Also, as far as number of employees as a measure of company size is concerned, one may note that higher number of employees does not indicate higher degree of export intensity. When it comes to the second hypothesis that assumes a positive relationship between export intensity and number of foreign markets served, its verification proved correct.
