The 2011 Import and Export Market for Glass Beads and Microspheres Less Than 1 mm, Glass Eyes (Not Prosthetic), Ornaments of Lamp-Worked Glass, and Glass Microspheres Less Than 1 mm in China

VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 76

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm in China face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm to China? How important is China compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm vary from one country of origin to another in China? On the supply side, China also exports glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm. Which countries receive the most exports from China? How are these exports concentrated across buyers? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers? This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm in China. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm for those countries serving China via exports, or supplying from China via imports. It does so for the current year based on a varie

                                 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.

                           About ICON Group Ltd.
ICON Group Ltd.’s primary mission is to assist managers with their international information
needs. U.S.-owned and operated, ICON Group has field offices in Paris, Hong Kong and Lomé,
Togo (West Africa). Created in 1994, ICON Group has published hundreds of multi-client
databases, and global/regional market data, industry and country publications.

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.

Glass Beads and Microspheres Less Than 1 mm, Glass Eyes (Not Prosthetic), Ornaments of Lamp-Worked
Glass, and Glass Microspheres Less Than 1 mm in China                                       8


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on glass beads and microspheres
less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass
microspheres less than 1 mm in China face a number of questions. Which countries are
supplying glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of
lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm to China? How important is China
compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports
of glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-
worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm vary from one country of origin to another
in China? On the supply side, China also exports glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm,
glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1
mm. Which countries receive the most exports from China? How are these exports concentrated
across buyers? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?

This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and
import/export managers who are concerned with the market for glass beads and microspheres less
than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres
less than 1 mm in China. 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 which
appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic
and trade models, to estimate the market for glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass
eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm for
those countries serving China via exports, or supplying from China via imports. It does so for the
current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.

In what follows, Chapter 2 begins by summarizing where China fits into the world market for
imported and exported glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic),
ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm. The total level of
imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for China in particular, is estimated using a
model which aggregates across over 150 key country markets and projects these to the current
year. From there, each country represents a percent of the world market. This market is served
from a number of competitive countries of origin. Based on both demand- and supply-side
dynamics, market shares by country of origin are then calculated across each country market
destination. These shares lead to a volume of import and export values for each country and are
aggregated to regional and world totals. In doing so, we are able to obtain maximum likelihood
estimates of both the value of each market and the share that China is likely to receive this year.
From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize China compared to
other major country markets. In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that
can be combined with internal information sources for strategic planning purposes.

After the worldwide summary in Chapter 2 of both imports and exports of glass beads and
microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and

glass microspheres less than 1 mm, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each major
country of origin serving China. A “major” market is defined as a country where China
represents a substantially large share of either imports or exports. For each major country
exporting to China, one can thus observe how important China is to that exporting country
compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of glass beads
and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass,
and glass microspheres less than 1 mm originating from China, for each major country of
destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that China has in each major market; this
share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness for China. In all cases, the total dollar
volume and percentage share values by major trading partner are provided. Combined, Chapters
3 and 4 present a the total picture for imports and exports of glass beads and microspheres less
than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres
less than 1 mm to and from China to and from all other major countries in the world. "Glass
Beads and Microspheres Less Than 1 mm, Glass Eyes (Not Prosthetic), Ornaments of Lamp-
Worked Glass, and Glass Microspheres Less Than 1 mm" as a category is defined in this report
following the definition given by the United Nations Statistics Division Classification Registry
using the Standard International Trade Classification, Revision 3 (SITC, Rev. 3). The SITC code
that defined "glass beads and microspheres less than 1 mm, glass eyes (not prosthetic), ornaments
of lamp-worked glass, and glass microspheres less than 1 mm" is 66593 . For more information
