Before that happens, there is a need to assess its preparation to go global and the opportunities available in its industry globally. This paper discusses the readiness of Alimna bank to internationalize and the market potential of the banking industry. Alimna Bank's Readiness to Internationalize Trade-offs and expected benefits In the assessment of the Bank's readiness to go global, several factors come into play. One of the elements in assessing the readiness of Alimna Bank to venture into foreign markets has to do with the trade-offs and benefits of engaging in the international expansion of its boundaries.

To begin with, the fact that Alinma has been in the Forbes Magazine firms' growth list indicates a high rate of profitability. In the year ending 31st December 2018, Alinma Bank made a profit of SAR 2. 41 billion (Forbes, 2019). That represented a 19. 6% increment in profitability from the previous year. These changes indicate that the best way to increase a firm's competitive advantage is through enhanced innovation (Wallace, 2017). The Alinma Bank has also been one of the leading innovators in the industry and as the capability to compete fairly in the foreign markets.

However, where there is surplus or more supply than the demand for the services, it is crucial that the company seeking for global market ventures finds ways of competing fairly and gaining a significant market share in the new regions (Tage, Hans, & Rosalina, 2015). As such, evaluating the number of customers per institution is one of the methods to be used in determining the market potential of the industry.
