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

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.

                           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,

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.

Cleaned or Treated Bird Skins, Feathers, and Down Including Powder and Wastes Thereof in Italy     7


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

country compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of
cleaned or treated bird skins, feathers, and down including powder and wastes thereof originating
from Italy, for each major country of destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that
Italy has in each major market; this share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness for
Italy. 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
cleaned or treated bird skins, feathers, and down including powder and wastes thereof to and from
Italy to and from all other major countries in the world. "Cleaned or Treated Bird Skins, Feathers,
and Down Including Powder and Wastes Thereof" 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 "cleaned or treated bird skins, feathers, and down including powder and wastes
thereof" is 29195 . For more information on this definition, please refer to the following web

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.

Description: On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on cleaned or treated bird skins, feathers, and down including powder and wastes thereof in Italy face a number of questions.
