                                        About the Author
Dr. Philip M. Parker is the Eli Lilly Chaired Professor of Innovation, Business and Society at INSEAD where he has
taught courses on global competitive strategy since 1988. He has also taught courses at MIT, Stanford University,
Harvard University, UCLA, UCSD, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Professor Parker is
the author of six books on the economic convergence of nations. These books introduce the notion of
“physioeconomics” which foresees a lack of global convergence in economic behaviors due to physiological and
physiographic forces. His latest book is "Physioeconomics: The Basis for Long-Run Economic Growth" (MIT Press
2000). He has also published numerous articles in academic journals, including, the Rand Journal of Economics,
Marketing Science, the Journal of International Business Studies, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, the
International Journal of Forecasting, the European Management Journal, the European Journal of Operational
Research, the Journal of Marketing, the International Journal of Research in Marketing, and the Journal of
Marketing Research. He is also on the editorial boards of several academic journals.

Dr. Parker received his Ph.D. in Business Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
and has Masters degrees in Finance and Banking (University of Aix-Marseille) and Managerial Economics
(Wharton). His undergraduate degrees are in mathematics, biology and economics (minor in aeronautical
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 markets for a substantial portion of their business
or who might be threatened by international competition. The estimates given in this report were created using a
methodology developed by and implemented under the direct supervision of Professor Philip M. Parker, the Eli Lilly
Chaired Professor of Innovation, Business and Society, at INSEAD. The methodology relies on historical figures
across countries. Reported figures should be seen as estimates of past and future levels of latent demand.

Some of the methodologies and research approaches used in this report have benefited from the R&D Committee at
INSEAD, whose research support is gratefully acknowledged.                                                     ©2011 ICON Group International, Inc.

                   About Icon Group International, Inc.
Icon Group International, Inc.’s primary mission is to assist managers with their international information needs
using forward-looking economic analysis. Icon Group has field offices in San Diego, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong,
and Lomé, Togo (West Africa). Icon Group has published hundreds of multi-client databases and global/regional
market data, industry, and country publications.

Global/Regional Management Studies: Summarizing over 210 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
strategy. 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. Covering over 190 countries, each
study consists of forward-looking analysis, statistics, forecasts, and information of relevance to managers. The
studies are continually updated to ensure 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 & Trade 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, 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.

Intranet Subscriptions: Icon Group International, Inc. now offers full intranet subscriptions which brings millions
of dollars of high-end global market research to the manager’s personal computer. For more information, please
