The International Art Markets, subtitled The Essential Guide for Collectors and Investors, is a book, compiled and edited by James Goodwin.

In 42 country art market chapters, plus one regional chapter, the book's aim is to detail the multitude of influences on each country's art market for the benefit of new or existing art collectors and investors. The book includes chapters on 21 countries from Europe, 12 from Asia and Australasia, five from South America, four from the Middle East and Africa, and two from North America.

Written by 58 mostly locally based experts from the art trade, each chapter provides an introduction to the art market; a summary of each individual market and their history; market structure and performance, including artists, dealers, auctioneers, fairs, trade associations, museums, exhibitions, and education; and tax and regulation.
