Poland Market Notebook
This week we refer to the Poland Market Notebook, with the most relevant aspects about this market and its characteristics for the participating clusters in the Master Export project.
The consequences and developments, as mentioned before, as a result of the Covid19 pandemic are still unknown. However, given that these industries are largely structural and relevant to the maintenance of the local and European business fabric, in the long term their development should be presented as relevant.
Changes and adaptations are expected, but they should allow the Union’s internal interactions to grow.
As noted in the previous Market Notebook, knowledge of the basic realities in terms of industry and economics remains the basis for the development of a future action plan.
This presentation is maintained in terms of importance within the scope of Master Export:
“Market notebooks are one of the objectives of developing information regarding the target markets of the Master Export project.
They fit into the need to better understand the destinations with potential for exporting products from the two rows / clusters on which this project operates – Metalomecânica and Habitat.
As described in the project, it has several objectives in order to assist business development with these markets aimed at being more relevant to these clusters installed in the regions where the whole project is developed and focused. ”
Thus, we present the introductory summary of the France Market Notebook, which is part of the document that can be downloaded on the website, in the “Info | Docs” area:
The Polish domestic market is one of the largest markets in the European Union, always showing a unique growth with an excellent ability to apprehend products from abroad. The table below shows a summary of Poland’s main indicators for 2017 and 2018.
The main economic partners for export are Germany, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. With regard to imports, the consortia that stand out the most are Germany, China and Russia. The following graph highlights the growth in exports and imports of goods and services from Poland.
In general, the Polish economy has performed well in recent years. The growth of the economy was fueled by the growth in domestic demand – driven by favorable developments in the labor market and strong consumer confidence – as the main growth driver, together with public investments financed with EU funds.
According to Poland’s export profile, the metalwork and habitat sector are examples that appear as potential export opportunities for the Polish market and, as such, are included in the opportunity matrices developed in this study.
