Item-3: Market pointers

Market pointers are very effective due to the fact that they are concise and info-heavy. For a company that is thinking about expanding offshores or targeting a specific market (i.e. country), a market pointer is an essential “first-step” when making that assessment. The market pointer will inform our members about the macro economic trends in that market, the prices, quality requirements and market access regulations. All this information present in a summarized, brief, and structured manner (in the form of boxed templates as opposed to a report).

 

Members are able to ask PalTrade for as many market pointers as they need, noting that a market pointer can take up to 2 days to be prepared.

Item-4: Market studies

Market studies are basically advanced market pointers that are presented in the form of a report as opposed to templates. They include all the information that is given in market pointers, in addition to consumer behavior, consumer trends, intelligence on distribution channels, and snapshots of the political and economic landscapes of the targeted markets.

 

The level of effort put into a market study is much higher than that of a market pointer. Information for market studies mostly gathered from paid subscription-services such as Euromonitor, which provide this information for only one, paid user. This information cannot be cut-and-pasted and distributed; rather, it needs to be re-interpreted and paraphrased, analyzed and developed by PalTrade staff.

 

The price of market reports from websites such as Euromonitor and The Economist’s Intelligence Unit may range from $250 to $1,800. PalTrade staff may spend up to 20 working days (or as little as 5 working days) to prepare the studies.

 

PalTrade staff has also been trained by the ITC to search for relevant information from reliable sources, and to present this information in an intelligent and effective manner.
