PICK UPS MARKET IN SAUDI ARABIA

Auther : Mamdouh ALkatib ALkswani

 

The main objective of this study is to analyze the pick ups market in Saudi Arabia, during the period 1976-1990, based on foreign trade statistics and MVPI database. Distributions of imported pick ups by numbers, values, and origins are established. The pick up exporters are divided into four groups Japanese, USA, European countries, and the rest of the world. The absolute shares, the main prices, the cumulated shares, for groups and! or companies of pick up exporters are calculated and analyzed. The Japanese pick ups, for example, represent 89.5% of the total number, 84% of the total value, and 91.4% of the cumulated number of imported pick ups.

The study contains some econometric models explaining the absolute shares of Japanese and American imported pick ups to Saudi Arabian markets, by two variables: the number of imported pick ups from other groups and the mean real prices. The relative shares of Japanese and American pick ups are also explained by two variables: the pick up relative prices and the exchange rates of the American dollar or the Japanese yen. Simultaneous equations models analysis the pick ups demand by taking the real prices, the real GNP, the exchange rates, and the urban population ratio as variables. Partial demand elasticity’s are estimated for these variables. Finally, the main findings are used to expect the picp ups demand for the period 1990-1996, according to behavior analysis of Saudi Arabian consumers. The competition between Japanese and American pick up exporting companies, is studied to show how difficult is the domination of this market by the American companies.
