                                 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.

Turkey                                                                                         8


1       INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on paper handkerchiefs, tissues,
towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories in Turkey face a number
of questions. Which countries are supplying paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed
sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories to Turkey? How important is Turkey compared
to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of paper
handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories
vary from one country of origin to another in Turkey? On the supply side, Turkey also exports
paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing
accessories. Which countries receive the most exports from Turkey? 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 paper handkerchiefs, tissues,
towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories in Turkey. 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
paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing
accessories for those countries serving Turkey via exports, or supplying from Turkey 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 Turkey fits into the world market for
imported and exported paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen,
garments, and clothing accessories. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis,
and those for Turkey 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 Turkey is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to
allow managers to prioritize Turkey 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 paper handkerchiefs,
tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories, Chapter 3 goes
into detail on imports, but for each major country of origin serving Turkey. A “major” market is

Paper Handkerchiefs, Tissues, Towels, Tablecloths, Bed Sheets, Linen, Garments, and Clothing Accessories in
Turkey                                                                                         9

defined as a country where Turkey represents a substantially large share of either imports or
exports. For each major country exporting to Turkey, one can thus observe how important
Turkey is to that exporting country compared to other countries of the world. Chapter 4 does the
same, but for exports of paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen,
garments, and clothing accessories originating from Turkey, for each major country of
destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that Turkey has in each major market; this
share value is often used as a measure of competitiveness for Turkey. 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 paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels,
tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories to and from Turkey to and from
all other major countries in the world. "Paper Handkerchiefs, Tissues, Towels, Tablecloths, Bed
Sheets, Linen, Garments, and Clothing Accessories" 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 "paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and
clothing accessories" is 64294 . For more information on this definition, please refer to the
following web site:

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 paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories in Turkey face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories to Turkey? How important is Turkey compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories vary from one country of origin to another in Turkey? On the supply side, Turkey also exports paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories. Which countries receive the most exports from Turkey? 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 paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories in Turkey. 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 paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths, bed sheets, linen, garments, and clothing accessories for those countries serving Turkey via exports, or supplying from Turkey 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 Turkey fits into the world market for imported and exported paper handkerchiefs, tissues, towels, tablecloths,
