Bash is a shell and a simple programming shell too. There are a lot variables built in or externally specified. If a variable is specified externally making this variable system wide available is a problem. Export command makes variables available system wide by propagating to the sub shells. Exported variable would not be available to the parent processes. Which means previously spawned or created process will not get exported variable.
