Why invest in Brazil?

There are numerous benefits for international investors who invest in Brazil.  The country has a diversified and growing economy, offering unique opportunities in several sectors.  Let’s explore the main reasons to invest in Brazil.

Largest economy in Latin America and top-10 in the world

In 2023, Brazil returned to being among the ten largest economies in the world, occupying ninth place in the ranking, with a GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of US$ 2.2 trillion.

In the selection of Latin American countries, the country appears in first place.  The economic growth scenario is also aligned with better opportunities to invest in Brazil.

Diversified Economy

Brazil has one of the most diversified economies in the world.  Sectors such as agribusiness, tourism, energy, mining, technology, and manufacturing are robust.

This diversity of areas provides a solid base for investors, having an environment with several options to invest in, not being held hostage by just a single sector.

Large and Varied Consumer Market

With a population of more than 215 million inhabitants, Brazil is the largest consumer market in Latin America.  This vast market offers opportunities for companies from all segments, from startups to large multinational companies.

In addition to being populous, the Brazilian market is broad, as it presents diverse peoples, cultures and varied preferences, making the market conducive to diverse investment opportunities.

Abundant Natural Resources

The Brazilian territory has 6 biomes (Amazon, Caatinga, Cerrado, Atlantic Forest, Pampa and Pantanal), making Brazil rich in natural resources, including oil, iron ore, and vast agricultural lands.  This access to essential resources is a significant attraction for investors in the energy, mining and agribusiness sectors.

Furthermore, the country is one of the world’s largest food exporters, holding third place in the global ranking of agricultural exporters in the world, behind only the European Union and the United States.

Government Incentives to invest in Brazil

The Brazilian government offers several incentives to foreign investors, such as tax exemptions, subsidies and facilitation of bureaucratic procedures.  Programs such as Inova Simples and the Simples Nacional regime are examples of initiatives that aim to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship in the country.

Expanding Infrastructure

Brazilian infrastructure has evolved in recent years, presenting improvements in highways, ports, airports and telecommunications.  New structural projects have boosted Brazil in recent years.

These investments improve logistics and connectivity, making the country more attractive for international business.

According to MInfra (Ministry of Infrastructure), the country delivered a total of 364 transport infrastructure works, in the period from 2019 to 2022.  Investments were BRL 20 billion, added to the contribution of BRL 117 billion in private funds.

Reforms and Legal Frameworks

Brazil has a regulatory environment that, despite being complex, offers legal certainty for investors.  Recent reforms have simplified processes and reduced bureaucracy, making it easier for foreign companies to enter and operate in the country.
