Abstract

This report presents the results of an econometric analysis of four U.S. overseas apple markets and explores competition in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. The results indicate that the United States will increase its apple exports to these markets as they grow. However, U.S. import share will increase only slightly in Hong Kong and in the United Kingdom, while the share in the other two markets—Canada and Singapore—will either not quite, or just barely, be maintained. The results also show that the growth of Chile as a major world supplier of apples has not changed the U.S. competitive position in these markets. In Hong Kong, the U.S. competitive position has improved more because of the exit of China as a major apple supplier than it has declined because of the entry of Chile.
