Thanks, Venkat! Based on your suggestion and some research, I exported HBase data to HDFS which created a file named 'part-00000'. Could you please suggest how to export HDFS file 'part-00000' into a SQL Database such as MYSQL or ORACLE??

Sqoop cannot directly export from a hbase table.   The Hcatalog integration can be used, but you have to create an external table in Hive accessing the hbase table and then use Sqoop HCat support to export the table
