Consequences of no foreign filing

Potential users of our technology are multinational companies with factories and makets everywhere.  However, in most cases, USA is their biggest market.  
 
If they infringe on a US Patent, would they still be able to sell products in the US?

Legally, no.  Practically, yes, unless/until you take action against them, but this is the same as when you've patented your invention internationally anyway.
