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.

                           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.

Tailors’ Dummies, Lay Figures, Automatons, and Animated Displays Used for Shop Window Dressing in the
Netherlands                                                                               6


1      INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on tailors’ dummies, lay figures,
automatons, and animated displays used for shop window dressing in the Netherlands face a
number of questions. Which countries are supplying tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons,
and animated displays used for shop window dressing to the Netherlands? How important is the
Netherlands compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do
the imports of tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated displays used for shop
window dressing vary from one country of origin to another in the Netherlands? On the supply
side, the Netherlands also exports tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated
displays used for shop window dressing. Which countries receive the most exports from the
Netherlands? 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 tailors’ dummies, lay figures,
automatons, and animated displays used for shop window dressing in the Netherlands. 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
tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated displays used for shop window dressing
for those countries serving the Netherlands via exports, or supplying from the Netherlands 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 the Netherlands fits into the world
market for imported and exported tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated
displays used for shop window dressing. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide
basis, and those for the Netherlands 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 the Netherlands is likely to receive this year. From these
figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize the Netherlands 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 tailors’ dummies, lay
figures, automatons, and animated displays used for shop window dressing, Chapter 3 goes into
detail on imports, but for each major country of origin serving the Netherlands. A “major”

Tailors’ Dummies, Lay Figures, Automatons, and Animated Displays Used for Shop Window Dressing in the
Netherlands                                                                               7

market is defined as a country where the Netherlands represents a substantially large share of
either imports or exports. For each major country exporting to the Netherlands, one can thus
observe how important the Netherlands is to that exporting country compared to other countries
of the world. Chapter 4 does the same, but for exports of tailors’ dummies, lay figures,
automatons, and animated displays used for shop window dressing originating from the
Netherlands, for each major country of destination. In doing so, one can discover the share that
the Netherlands has in each major market; this share value is often used as a measure of
competitiveness for the Netherlands. 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 tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated
displays used for shop window dressing to and from the Netherlands to and from all other major
countries in the world. "Tailors’ Dummies, Lay Figures, Automatons, and Animated Displays
Used for Shop Window Dressing" 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
"tailors’ dummies, lay figures, automatons, and animated displays used for shop window
dressing" is 89988 . 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.
