The 2011 Import and Export Market for Surveying, Hydrographic, Oceanographic, Hydrological, or Meteorological Instruments and Appliances; Rangefinders; and Their Parts and Accessories in Japan

VIEWS: 1 PAGES: 77

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories in Japan face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories to Japan? How important is Japan compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories vary from one country of origin to another in Japan? On the supply side, Japan also exports surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories. Which countries receive the most exports from Japan? 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 surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories in Japan. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories for those countries serving Japan via exports, or supplying from Japan via imports. It does so for the current year base

                                 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.

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. Additional

                           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.

Surveying, Hydrographic, Oceanographic, Hydrological, or Meteorological Instruments and Appliances;

1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on surveying, hydrographic,
oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and
their parts and accessories in Japan face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying
surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and
appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories to Japan? How important is Japan
compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports
of surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and
appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories vary from one country of origin to
another in Japan?        On the supply side, Japan also exports surveying, hydrographic,
oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and
their parts and accessories. Which countries receive the most exports from Japan? 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 surveying, hydrographic,
oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and
their parts and accessories in Japan. 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 surveying, hydrographic,
oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and
their parts and accessories for those countries serving Japan via exports, or supplying from Japan
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 Japan fits into the world market for
imported and exported surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological
instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories. The total level of
imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Japan 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 Japan is likely to receive this year.
From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Japan 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 surveying,
hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances;
rangefinders; and their parts and accessories, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each
major country of origin serving Japan. A “major” market is defined as a country where Japan
represents a substantially large share of either imports or exports. For each major country
exporting to Japan, one can thus observe how important Japan is to that exporting country
compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of surveying,
hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances;
rangefinders; and their parts and accessories originating from Japan, for each major country of
destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that Japan has in each major market; this
share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness for Japan. 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 surveying, hydrographic,
oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and
their parts and accessories to and from Japan to and from all other major countries in the world.
"Surveying, Hydrographic, Oceanographic, Hydrological, or Meteorological Instruments and
Appliances; Rangefinders; and Their Parts and Accessories" 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 "surveying, hydrographic, oceanographic, hydrological, or meteorological
instruments and appliances; rangefinders; and their parts and accessories" is 87414 . For more
information on this definition, please refer to the following web site:

Important Caveat. The figures should be seen as market estimates, as opposed to historical
records, as these are forecasted for the current year of trade. More importantly, in light of the fact
that unforeseeable factors might interrupt markets in achieving their reported levels, the figures
should be seen as estimates of potential. For example, "mad cow" disease, foot-and-mouth
disease, trade embargoes, military conflicts, acts of terrorism and other events will certainly
affect the actual trade flows recorded for a variety of industry or product categories. In such
cases, the difference between the numbers given in this report and the numbers actually observed
might be interpreted as the "net loss" or "net gain" due to these exogenous events affecting
regular trade flows that would have occurred had these events not have taken place.
