Evidence of International Business activity can be traced back thousands of years, many of today’s major International trading patterns have evolved over several countries. During the 1950s the united states dominated the global economy because many other industrialized countries were rebuilding after World War II.But international competition began to increase during the 1960s and eventually led to the end of U.S.dominance in the 1970s. In the 1980s many U.S. firms gradually began to regain their competitiveness.As the 1990s dawned, global marketplaces  and global industries were becoming fairly well-defined.
International Business has grown dramatically in recent years because of market expansion, resource acquisition, competitive force, technological changes, social changes and changes in government trade and investment policies.
