EXPOSURE, generally, is the extent to which a product is kept in the public eye through the press, radio, television, and public appearances. In finance, exposure refers to the amount that a business or person can lose. For example: in foreign exchange, it refers to the degree to which a company is affected by exchange rate changes.

MARKET VALUE, in general, is the price at which buyers and sellers trade similar items in an open marketplace.
