On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel in United Kingdom face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel to United Kingdom? How important is United Kingdom compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel vary from one country of origin to another in United Kingdom? On the supply side, United Kingdom also exports waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel. Which countries receive the most exports from United Kingdom? 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 waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel in United Kingdom. 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 Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact.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 waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel for those countries serving United Kingdom via exports, or supplying from United Kingdom 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 United Kingdom fits into the world market for imported and exported waste and scrap of alloy steel excluding stainless steel. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for United Kingdom 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 United Kingdom is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize United Kingdom 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.
