The 2011 Import and Export Market for Guts, Bladders, and Stomachs of Animals Excluding Fish in Slovenia by ICONGroup

VIEWS: 4 PAGES: 18

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish in Slovenia face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish to Slovenia? How important is Slovenia compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish vary from one country of origin to another in Slovenia? On the supply side, Slovenia also exports guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish. Which countries receive the most exports from Slovenia? 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 guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish in Slovenia. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish for those countries serving Slovenia via exports, or supplying from Slovenia 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 Slovenia fits into the world market for imported and exported guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Slovenia 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 w

                                 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.

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.

                            Guts, Bladders, and Stomachs of Animals Excluding Fish in Slovenia     6


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on guts, bladders, and stomachs of
animals excluding fish in Slovenia face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying
guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish to Slovenia? How important is Slovenia
compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports
of guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish vary from one country of origin to
another in Slovenia? On the supply side, Slovenia also exports guts, bladders, and stomachs of
animals excluding fish. Which countries receive the most exports from Slovenia? 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 guts, bladders, and stomachs of
animals excluding fish in Slovenia. 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 guts, bladders, and stomachs of
animals excluding fish for those countries serving Slovenia via exports, or supplying from
Slovenia 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 Slovenia fits into the world market for
imported and exported guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish. The total level of
imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Slovenia 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 Slovenia is likely to receive this
year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Slovenia
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 guts, bladders, and
stomachs of animals excluding fish, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each major
country of origin serving Slovenia. A “major” market is defined as a country where Slovenia
represents a substantially large share of either imports or exports. For each major country
exporting to Slovenia, one can thus observe how important Slovenia is to that exporting country
compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of guts,
bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish originating from Slovenia, for each major

country of destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that Slovenia has in each major
market; this share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness for Slovenia. 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 guts, bladders,
and stomachs of animals excluding fish to and from Slovenia to and from all other major
countries in the world. "Guts, Bladders, and Stomachs of Animals Excluding Fish" 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 "guts, bladders, and stomachs of animals excluding fish" is
29193 . For more information on this definition, please refer to the following web site:
http://unstats.un.org/unsd/cr/registry/regcs.asp?Cl=14&Lg=1&Co=291 .

This report is updated on an annual basis. To ensure that you have the most current version,

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.
