Artykuł podejmuje temat zmian w postrzeganiu barier eksportowych w toku procesu umiędzynarodowienia firmy. Na podstawie próby 7515 europejskich małych i średnich przedsiębiorstw, zbadano różnice w postrzeganiu barier przez różne grupy firm: przedsiębiorstwa niezainteresowane eksportem, przyszłych eksporterów, pre-eksporterów, sporadycznych eksporterów, zaangażowanych eksporterów, aktywnych eksporterów, zaawansowanych eksporterów oraz byłych eksporterów. Zbadano zarówno bariery zewnętrzne (tj. uwarunkowane sytuacją na rynku krajowym i na rynkach zagranicznych) jak i wewnętrzne (tj. związane z zasobami, strategią, działaniami marketingowymi firmy). Badanie wskazuje na istotne różnice pomiędzy częścią z analizowanych grup, dostarczając dowodów na to, że postrzeganie barier eksportowych zmienia się w kolejnych etapach internacjonalizacji. (abstrakt oryginalny)

This paper explores the evolution of export barriers along the firm's internationalization process. Based on a sample of 7,515 European SMEs, we investigate the differences perceived by different groups of firms: companies uninterested in exports, future exporters, pre-exporters, experimental exporters, involved exporters, active exporters, committed exporters and failed exporters. We study both external barriers (i.e. arising from the environment in home and foreign markets) and internal barriers (i.e. related to the company's resource endowment, marketing and strategy). We find statistically significant differences between some of the studied groups, thus supporting the notion that the perception of internationalization barriers changes along the firm's lifecycle.
