Are you Hanna the Economist?
Hanna is trying to do a strategic study for a client on resource allocation for the maritime shipping industry. She wants to understand which bi-lateral markets are growing, as well as the size of the martitime trade, measured in containers (TEUs). She needs some help.
How QuERI can help:
QuERI can provide detailed estimates for more than 9000 trade routes that show commodities transported by ocean freight. Commodity data will allow Hanna to organize sales into key shipping product industries for these routes. For example, QuERI data will show Hanna the five fastest products on the China-US route, which could allow her to direct her sales force to these industries.
Why do you need this data?
Are you Louis, the (frustrated) Analyst?
Louis works as a strategic planning analyst for a mid-sized manufacturer of non-organic chemical products in Argentina. Senior Management is interested in possibly entering the Chinese market, and also wants Louis to figure out how to set better sales targets for its Latin American region. Louis doesn't have a large budget to buy data, nor the resources or in-house ability to forecast this information. He is frustrated.
How QuERI can help:
QuERI can help Louis by offering simplified tables showing the size of the Chinese chemical market, and growth rate for the industry. QuERI databases and tables can also provide Louis with additional analytical data measuring the competititve position of domestic companies within the non-organic chemical production market. This will help Senior Management figure out not only the potential for growth within this market in China (current size), expected growth (potential for the company), as well as the current competitive nature of in-country producers. If import concentrations are low, this suggests the best approach may be to buy a Chinese company or build a new plant in China rather than to try to penetrate the market through exports.
QuERI forecasts can also provide Louis with the information needed for Senior Management to set appropriate sales targets. QuERI forecasts cover nearly all major countries in South America, which allows for cross-country comparisons of country size and potential growth. Louis provides this information to Senior Management at a fraction of the cost
of the competition or even in-house analyst salaries. Bonus time!
