The 2011 Import and Export Market for Natural Stone Tiles with Sides Measuring Less Than 7 cm in Pakistan

VIEWS: 2 PAGES: 14

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm in Pakistan face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm to Pakistan? How important is Pakistan compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm vary from one country of origin to another in Pakistan? On the supply side, Pakistan also exports natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm. Which countries receive the most exports from Pakistan? 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 natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm in Pakistan. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm for those countries serving Pakistan via exports, or supplying from Pakistan via imports.

                                 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.

                           Natural Stone Tiles with Sides Measuring Less Than 7 cm in Pakistan     6


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on natural stone tiles with sides
measuring less than 7 cm in Pakistan face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying
natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm to Pakistan? How important is Pakistan
compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports
of natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm vary from one country of origin to
another in Pakistan? On the supply side, Pakistan also exports natural stone tiles with sides
measuring less than 7 cm. Which countries receive the most exports from Pakistan? 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 natural stone tiles with sides
measuring less than 7 cm in Pakistan. 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 natural stone tiles with sides
measuring less than 7 cm for those countries serving Pakistan via exports, or supplying from
Pakistan 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 Pakistan fits into the world market for
imported and exported natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm. The total level of
imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Pakistan 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 Pakistan is likely to receive this
year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Pakistan
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 natural stone tiles with
sides measuring less than 7 cm, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each major country
of origin serving Pakistan. A “major” market is defined as a country where Pakistan represents a
substantially large share of either imports or exports. For each major country exporting to
Pakistan, one can thus observe how important Pakistan is to that exporting country compared to
other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of natural stone tiles with
sides measuring less than 7 cm originating from Pakistan, for each major country of destination.

In doing so, one can discover the share that Pakistan has in each major market; this share value is
often used as a measure of competitiveness for Pakistan. 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 natural stone tiles with sides measuring less
than 7 cm to and from Pakistan to and from all other major countries in the world. "Natural Stone
Tiles with Sides Measuring Less Than 7 cm" 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 "natural stone tiles with sides measuring less than 7 cm" is 66133 . For more information
on this definition, please refer to the following web site:

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.
