                                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 multivariate statistics and 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. He 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, International Journal of
Forecasting, the European Management Journal, the European Journal of Operational
Research, Journal of Marketing, International Journal of Research in Marketing, and 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 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.

Woven Fabrics of Less Than 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight, Exceeding 170 G/M2, and Mixed Mainly
with Cotton, in China                                                                      9


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on woven fabrics of less than 85%
polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, in China
face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying woven fabrics of less than 85%
polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, to China?
How important is China compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market?
How much do the imports of woven fabrics of less than 85% polyester staple fibers by weight,
exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, vary from one country of origin to another in
China? On the supply side, China also exports woven fabrics of less than 85% polyester staple
fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton,. 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 woven fabrics of less than 85%
polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, 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 woven fabrics of less than 85% polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170
g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, 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 woven fabrics of less than 85% polyester staple fibers by weight,
exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton,. 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 woven fabrics of less
than 85% polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton,,
Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each major country of origin serving China. A

Woven Fabrics of Less Than 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight, Exceeding 170 G/M2, and Mixed Mainly
with Cotton, in China                                                                      10

“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 woven fabrics of less than 85% polyester staple fibers by
weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton, 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 woven fabrics
of less than 85% polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with
cotton, to and from China to and from all other major countries in the world. "Woven Fabrics of
Less Than 85% Polyester Staple Fibers by Weight, Exceeding 170 G/M2, and Mixed Mainly with
Cotton," 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 less than
85% polyester staple fibers by weight, exceeding 170 g/m2, and mixed mainly with cotton," is
65333 . For more information on this definition, please refer to the following web site:
