The 2011 Import and Export Market for Woven Fabrics of At Least 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight in the United States by ICONGroup

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 89

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight in the United States face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight to the United States? How important is the United States compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight vary from one country of origin to another in the United States? On the supply side, the United States also exports woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight. Which countries receive the most exports from the United States? 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 woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight in the United States. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight for those countries serving the United States via exports, or supplying from the United States 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 the United States fits into the world market for imported and exported woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for the United States in particular, is estimated

                                 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.

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.

           Woven Fabrics of At Least 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight in the United States     8


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on woven fabrics of at least 85%
polyester staple fibers by weight in the United States face a number of questions. Which
countries are supplying woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight to the
United States? How important is the United States compared to others in terms of the entire
global and regional market? How much do the imports of woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester
staple fibers by weight vary from one country of origin to another in the United States? On the
supply side, the United States also exports woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers
by weight. Which countries receive the most exports from the United States? 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 woven fabrics of at least 85%
polyester staple fibers by weight in the United States. 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 woven fabrics of at least
85% polyester staple fibers by weight for those countries serving the United States via exports, or
supplying from the United States 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 the United States fits into the world
market for imported and exported woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight.
The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for the United States 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 the United
States is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers
to prioritize the United States 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 woven fabrics of at
least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each
major country of origin serving the United States. A “major” market is defined as a country
where the United States represents a substantially large share of either imports or exports. For
each major country exporting to the United States, one can thus observe how important the

United States is to that exporting country compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4
does the same, but for exports of woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by weight
originating from the United States, for each major country of destination. In doing so, one can
discover the share that the United States has in each major market; this share value is often used
as a measure of competitiveness for the United States. 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 woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester
staple fibers by weight to and from the United States to and from all other major countries in the
world. "Woven Fabrics of At Least 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight" 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 "woven fabrics of at least 85% polyester staple fibers by
weight" is 65321 . 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.
