Abstract: The severe reduction in domestic demand between 2008 and 2013 in Spain led many firms to start exporting. We explore whether the increase in the new crisis-induced exporters led to a larger number of regular exporters once domestic demand returned to pre-crisis levels. Using an instrumental variable approach, we find that a 10% increase in new exporters led to a 9% increase in the number of new regular exporters. Since the economic crisis was not anticipated in Spain, our results establish a causal link between a fall in domestic demand and the emergence of new regular exporters.
