Armed with that ideal customer, either do the research yourself--digging through websites and resources--or buy a list with some specific parameters.

Many valid and insightful suggestions already.

Your requirement is "How to address them"
The simplest formula is this:

a. What is your target audience or who is this (can you group them)
b. Which problem of theirs do you solve? (or your product solves)
c. Add an active verb of the action
Example: An attorney who focusses on Divorce

a. Couple having marital problems
b. Looking for a speedy and freedom with no headache
Intro: I help unhappy couple settle amicably in shortest span of time

Intro of a Printer focusing on Small businesses:
I help small businesses sell more through my creative and cost effective printing materials

Some more tips:
a. Get to know their problems and focus on the top 3 problems
Can you create a "Do it yourself" material and help them solve these problems?
It can be distributed as a free download on your website
Or a Free Counselling could even help

Some of my tips
1. What techniques got you so far? Can you standardise it
and check it if the same works in the US market
2. Would it be possible to draw up referrrals in the US markets
3. Producing consistent quality content on your website and be aggressive with your solid social media strategy.
4. Check with your digital agency to create "some useful and relevant content" that can go viral in the social media-- specifically USA market
5. Do you have affiliates from the US?
6. What part of the product can be given free as a "Test material" It can even be a "service tips" material Let them have a feel of your product and your service -- in short your brand
7. Can you participate in any trade shows physically or online
8. After creating all of these you could promote and advertise for "Distributors, Affiliate Partners " in that region

I can give a 10 minutes free talk in this regard

Hope it helps

Great answers already but still thought of adding few more points

1. Are you part of any network particularly on the innovation side I am a fellow indian check out national innovation foundation
2. As much as there are problems in India-- it provides greater opportunities as well Which of the industry or products can your mecnanical engineering can be put use into
3. Have you thought of servicing as a product?

4. Lastly how about teaching or handholding new engineers with their projects (last semester projects)
In fact you can startup some thing (like servicing) with these engineering students as your apprentice for all of your servicing projects
I can help you with further ideas and spare a 15 minute talk
