Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The European powers explored other lands because of the following reasons:

  • They wanted to find trade route to Asia to gain direct access to goods like spices and silks which were only found in Asia and were becoming scarce in Europe
  • They wanted to get raw materials for their industries
  • The European powers, were in need of slaves (laborers) to work in their huge plantation
  • They were looking for Gold and other valuable minerals.
  • Desires to expand their territories as this was a way to gain more power
  •  To spread Christianity
