The 2011 Import and Export Market for Parts for Typewriters and Word-Processing Machines in Asia

VIEWS: 1 PAGES: 35

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the market in Asia face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying parts for typewriters and word-processing machines to Asia? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of parts for typewriters and word-processing machines vary from one country to another in Asia? Do exporters serving the market in Asia have similar market shares across the importing countries? On the supply side, Asia also sells to the international market of parts for typewriters and word-processing machines. Which countries in Asia supply the most exports of parts for typewriters and word-processing machines? Which countries are buying their exports? 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 for typewriters and word-processing machines in Asia. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics that appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for parts for typewriters and word-processing machines for those countries serving Asia via exports or supplying from Asia via imports. We do 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 Asia fits into the world market for imported and exported parts for typewriters and word-processing machines. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Asia in particular, is based on 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 marke

                                 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.

                                  Parts for Typewriters and Word-Processing Machines in Asia       6



1      METHODOLOGY
1.1         OUR APPROACH
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the market in Asia face a
number of questions. Which countries are supplying parts for typewriters and word-processing
machines to Asia? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of parts
for typewriters and word-processing machines vary from one country to another in Asia? Do
exporters serving the market in Asia have similar market shares across the importing countries?
On the supply side, Asia also sells to the international market of parts for typewriters and word-
processing machines. Which countries in Asia supply the most exports of parts for typewriters
and word-processing machines? Which countries are buying their exports? 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 for typewriters and word-
processing machines in Asia. 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 that
appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic
and trade models, to estimate the market for parts for typewriters and word-processing machines
for those countries serving Asia via exports or supplying from Asia via imports. We do 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 Asia fits into the world market for
imported and exported parts for typewriters and word-processing machines. The total level of
imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Asia in particular, is based on 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 shares that countries in Asia are likely to receive this year.
From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize markets within Asia.
In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that can be combined with internal
information for strategic planning purposes.

After the worldwide summary in Chapter 2 of both imports and exports for Asia, Chapter 3
details the exports of parts for typewriters and word-processing machines, but for each individual
country in Asia. Chapter 4 does the same, but for imports of parts for typewriters and word-
processing machines for all countries in Asia. In all cases, the total dollar volume and percentage
share values by major trading partner are provided. Combined, Chapters 3 and 4 present the

                                   Parts for Typewriters and Word-Processing Machines in Asia       7

complete picture for imports and exports of parts for typewriters and word-processing machines
to and from Asia to and from all other countries in the world. Of the 150 countries considered, if
a country is not reported here it is therefore estimated to have only a negligible level of trade in
parts for typewriters and word-processing machines (i.e. their market shares are close or equal to
zero percent). "Parts for Typewriters and Word-Processing Machines" 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 for typewriters and word-processing machines" is 75991 . For
more information on this definition, please refer to the following web site:
http://unstats.un.org/unsd/cr/registry/regcs.asp?Cl=14&Lg=1&Co=759 .

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.
