                                About the Author
Dr. Philip M. Parker is the Eli Lilly Chaired Professor of Innovation, Business and Society at
INSEAD where he has taught courses on multivariate statistics and global competitive strategy
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
Forecasting, the European Management Journal, the European Journal of Operational
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.

Some of the methodologies and research approaches used in this report have benefited from the
R&D Committee at INSEAD, whose research support is gratefully acknowledged. Additional

                           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,
Togo (West Africa). Created in 1994, ICON Group has published hundreds of multi-client
databases, and global/regional market data, industry and country publications.

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.

Parts and Accessories of Revolution and Production Counters, Odometers, Pedometers, Speedometers,
Tachometers, and Strobescopes in Germany                                                    9


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on parts and accessories of
revolution and production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and
strobescopes in Germany face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying parts and
accessories of revolution and production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers,
tachometers, and strobescopes to Germany? How important is Germany compared to others in
terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of parts and
accessories of revolution and production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers,
tachometers, and strobescopes vary from one country of origin to another in Germany? On the
supply side, Germany also exports parts and accessories of revolution and production counters,
odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes. Which countries receive
the most exports from Germany? 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 parts and accessories of
revolution and production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and
strobescopes in Germany. 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 parts and accessories of revolution and production
counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes for those
countries serving Germany via exports, or supplying from Germany 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 Germany fits into the world market for
imported and exported parts and accessories of revolution and production counters, odometers,
pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes. The total level of imports and exports
on a worldwide basis, and those for Germany 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 Germany is likely to receive this year. From
these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Germany 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 parts and accessories
of revolution and production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and

strobescopes, Chapter 3 goes into detail on imports, but for each major country of origin serving
Germany. A “major” market is defined as a country where Germany represents a substantially
large share of either imports or exports. For each major country exporting to Germany, one can
thus observe how important Germany is to that exporting country compared to other countries of
the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of parts and accessories of revolution and
production counters, odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes
originating from Germany, for each major country of destination. In doing so, one can discover
the share that Germany has in each major market; this share value is often used as a measure of
competitiveness for Germany. 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 parts and accessories of revolution and production counters, odometers,
pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes to and from Germany to and from all
other major countries in the world. "Parts and Accessories of Revolution and Production
Counters, Odometers, Pedometers, Speedometers, Tachometers, and Strobescopes" 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 "parts and accessories of revolution and production counters,
odometers, pedometers, speedometers, tachometers, and strobescopes" is 87329 . For more

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 em
