The 2011 Import and Export Market for Hygenic or Pharmaceutical Articles Made of Unhardened Vulcanized Rubber in France by ICONGroup

VIEWS: 4 PAGES: 72

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber in France face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber to France? How important is France compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber vary from one country of origin to another in France? On the supply side, France also exports hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber. Which countries receive the most exports from France? 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 hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber in France. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber for those countries serving France via exports, or supplying from France 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 France fits into the world market for imported and exported hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for France in particular, is estimated using a model which aggregates across over 150 key country market

                                 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.

          Hygenic or Pharmaceutical Articles Made of Unhardened Vulcanized Rubber in France      7


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

exports of hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber originating
from France, for each major country of destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that
France has in each major market; this share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness
for France. 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 hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber to and from
France to and from all other major countries in the world. "Hygenic or Pharmaceutical Articles
Made of Unhardened Vulcanized Rubber" 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 "hygenic or pharmaceutical articles made of unhardened vulcanized rubber" is 6291 .

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.
