The 2013 Import and Export Market for Soybeans in Asia-
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the market in Asia face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying soybeans to Asia? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of soybeans 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 soybeans. Which countries in Asia supply the most exports of soybeans? 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 soybeans 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics that appear several years after the fact.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 soybeans 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.
