The World Market for Floorcloths, Dishcloths, Dusters, and Cleaning Cloths: A 2011 Global Trade Perspective by ICONGroup

VIEWS: 21 PAGES: 142

This report was created for strategic planners, international executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters, and cleaning cloths. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics that appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters, and cleaning cloths for those countries serving the world market via exports or supplying from various countries via imports. I do so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the world market face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters, and cleaning cloths? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters, and cleaning cloths vary from one country to another? Do exporters serving the world market have similar market shares across the importing countries? Which countries supply the most exports of floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters, and cleaning cloths? Which countries are buying their exports? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?

engineering). He has consulted and/or taught courses in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, North America
and Europe.


                                        About this Series
This series was created for international firms who rely on foreign export markets for a substantial portion of their
business or who might be threatened by foreign trade competition. The estimates given in this report were created
using a methodology developed by and under the direct supervision of Professor Philip M. Parker, the Eli Lilly
Chaired Professor of Innovation, Business and Society, at INSEAD. The methodology, relying on historical figures
of economic growth and trade flows, estimates the market shares of some 150 countries for over 500 industrial or
product categories. The figures should be seen as market estimates, as opposed to historical records, as these are
projected for the current year of trade.

Group has published hundreds of multi-client databases, and global/regional market data, industry and country

Global/Regional Management Studies. Summarizing over 190 countries, management studies are generally
organized into regional volumes and cover key management functions. The human resource series covers minimum
wages, child labor, unionization and collective bargaining. The international law series covers media control and
censorship, search and seizure, and trial justice and punishment. The diversity management series covers a variety of
environmental context drivers that effect global operations. These include women’s rights, children’s rights,
discrimination/racism, and religious forces and risks. Global strategic planning studies cover economic risk
assessments, political risk assessments, foreign direct investment strategy, intellectual property strategy, and export
strategies. Financial management studies cover taxes and tariffs. Global marketing studies focus on target segments
(e.g. seniors, children, women) and strategic marketing planning.

Country Studies. Often managers need an in-depth, yet broad and up-to-date understanding of a country’s strategic
market potential and situation before the first field trip or investment proposal. There are over 190 country studies
available. Each study consists of analysis, statistics, forecasts, and information of relevance to managers. The studies
are continually updated to insure that the reports have the most relevant information available. In addition to raw
information, the reports provide relevant analyses which put a more general perspective on a country (seen in the
context of relative performance vis-à-vis benchmarks).

Industry Studies. Companies are racing to become more international, if not global in their strategies. For over 2000
product/industry categories, these reports give the reader a concise summary of latent market forecasts, pro-forma
financials, import competition profiles, contacts, key references and trends across 200 countries of the world. Some
reports focus on a particular product and region (up to four regions per product), while others focus on a product
within a particular country.
