Preventing NTBs APEC Green Building Standards Goal: Advance Green Building in a manner that facilitates trade, creating opportunities for U.S. exporters APEC economies import 74% of U.S. building products Green Building is a high-growth market, and regulations are evolving ITA-led Green Building work in APEC began in 2011 Ongoing standards-focused multi-year project pursues industry-identified priorities for preventing non-tariff barriers to trade as APEC economies work to expand and regulate Green Building project elements: Green Building codes Building Information Modeling (BIM) to advance Green Building BIM supports a full digital model of a building BIM allows trial and building performance testing in the design stage, and carries design benefits through building commissioning and into the operational stage of the building Building envelope product testing and rating (energy efficient products) Non-tariff barriers to trade in ceiling and flooring products (focus on lab testing requirements) Strong collaboration within ITA I&A Office of Standards and Investment Policy + I&A Office of Materials Industries 13 Examples of NTBs include: standards, certifications, lab testing requirements, labeling, ratings
Opportunities 17 Strong global construction growth Global Industry Trends Construction accounts for 11% of global GDP. Projected growth in construction output of 67% over next decade, from $7.2T (2010) to $12T (2020), 5.2% per annum, outpacing global GDP growth. China and India projected to account for 38% of increase. Construction spending will shift to Asia and other emerging markets. Construction spending in developed countries will be constrained. Source: Global Construction 2020, Global Construction Perspectives, Oxford Economics. China’s growing construction market became worlds largest in By 2020 emerging markets will account for 55% of global construction, up from 46% today. Construction will make up 16.5% of GDP in those markets by In total China, India, the U.S., Indonesia, Canada, Russia, and Australia will account for 65% of growth in global construction by 2020.
15 Strong Green Building Growth in Asia-Pacific – Governments in the region are strongly backing sustainable construction trends; best practices that foster a level playing field provide practical references for economies looking to accelerate Green Building. Promotion MDCP program expansion Multiple annual IBPs within the sector (International Builders Show/National Association of Home Builders, World of Concrete, U.S. Green Building Council GreenBuild) NEI sector stakeholder outreach and presentations Private Sector Engagement - provides insights and helps set priorities Industry Trade Advisory Committees (ITACs) Green Building project-specific Advisory Groups Regular participation in industry events Collaboration – strong working relationships within ITA; particularly well facilitated through the Global Design and Construction team – global team training 2/2013. Opportunities (continued)
Opportunities: Inward Investment 16 Outlook The U.S. operating environment continues to reflect an increasing number of housing starts and improving house values Pick-up in repair and remodeling activity becoming apparent The company is continuing with its plan to invest in capacity expansions through re- commissioning of idled facilities in future periods Example: Foreign-owned building products company with multiple U.S. manufacturing facilities. Excerpt from investor presentation (October 2013) Current Environment Some positive signs for foreign building products companies considering direct investment: U.S. housing market recovery has begun Easing of credit market for qualified developers Sector Historic FDI Success Stories Steel Cement
Risks and Issues Tariffs – High tariff rates have significant impact on low-margin products – Escalating tariffs are common NTBs – Particularly in standards and regulatory coherence – Of consequence in high-growth Green Building product segments Availability of financing for Green Building projects – Improved metrics are needed to make a consistent business case Global economic conditions – Construction market growth depends on overall economic growth Tariff Rates BrazilChinaIndiaSaudi Arabia Flat-Rolled Steel14%7%6.3%5% HVAC Units23%20%10%8.5% Plywood10%12%10%5% Ceramic Sinks18%10% 12% Doors & Windows14%10% 5% Paints14%10% 8.5% Light Bulbs18%10% 5% Insulation16%10% 6.5% Source: WTO Tariff Database

Industry and Analysis’ Spotlight on Recreational Transportation November 13, 2013 Prepared by John Vanderwolf Office of Consumer Goods 22
Recreational Transportation What is it and How is it covered??? This sector includes most of the FUN ways we move like Boats (not ships) and all the accessories and parts (e.g., Jet Skis, Sea Ray Boats, and Mercury Marine Engines) Motorcycles, Bicycles, and Parts (e.g., Harley-Davidson and Trek) Recreation Vehicles or RVs (e.g., Airstream and Winnebago) Miscellaneous Transportation which includes golf cars, snowmobiles, All-Terrain Vehicles, and Segways 25
“Work Hard, Play Hard!” Positive trade balance! Exporting American Lifestyle! Create Jobs! Coordinated ITA Effort! Why Recreational Transportation as a Priority Sector
NEI Priority Markets: (Figures based on Year-End 2012) Source: U.S. Census Bureau 1.Worldwide$7.692 B Since these markets are relatively small ITA needs to take advantage of opportunities when they are available. 2.Canada $3.032 BMost US manufacturers view this market as an extension of the US market. 3.European Union (15)$1.436 BThese are the easiest markets for US SMEs to start with particularly for firms in the boating industry. 4.Australia$463 MThis market is a perfect market for some manufacturers too fixated on the US market as its season starts as the US ends. 5.Japan$412 MJapan is a developed market with a desire for U.S.-made products. 6.Mexico$220 MThe proximity and low barriers give the industry a great advantage. 7.China$197 MThe biggest growing leisure market and with a desire for US- made products. 8.Brazil$184 MThe largest market in South America and with a great desire for recreation and leisure activities. 9.Russia$95 MA great potential market that could be great for RV and motorcycle manufacturers. 10.South Korea$52 MA market with low barriers and a growing middle class with increasing leisure time. 29 U.S. Recreational Transportation Exports to Target Markets Tariff Rate: 0% Tariff Rates: % Tariff Rate: 0% Tariff Rates: 10-30% Tariff Rates: 20-35% Tariff Rate: 0% Tariff Rates: 5-20%
30 Competitive Subsectors NOTE: Much of what is made in the US is competitive worldwide so if a subsector is not mentioned here but the client produces here he is competitive there! Think New York, New York! Motorboats from feet. -- This is where the bulk or the U.S. market wants and the industry is competitive producing. Leisure and “statement” motorcycles – U.S. consumers and many foreign consumers of motorcycles want to make a statement or be noticed and yes get from point A to B comfortably. Accessorized Motorhomes and Travel Trailers – U.S. consumers want the “bells and whistles;” they want all the comforts of home and sometimes that means space. U.S.RVs tend to be bigger than European – produced products. “Work adapted” products– U.S. RV, Boat, and Motorcycle firms often can customize products to serve various needs of government and business. Mobile offices, government patrol boats, and ATVs, police motorcycles to name the more obvious products. Golf cars and snowmobiles – These products are uniquely American and most foreign manufacturers have found it hard to compete with the economies of scale achieved by servicing the U.S. market. 3 Georgia manufacturers supply at least 85 percent of the world market.
31 Regional Manufacturing Centers: Harley-Davidson and Polaris/Victory have operations in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Iowa. It is likely to have parts suppliers near those facilities. California and Texas are the most likely locations for custom bikes and parts. But can be found scattered throughout the United States. Boats are manufactured throughout the U.S. but the largest concentrations of boating related employment are Florida, California, Michigan, Texas, and New York. RVs are primarily manufactured in Indiana accounting for 80% of U.S. production. ATV and Snowmobiles are primarily produced in the central U.S. states. (golf cars-GA) The following sites have membership lists that may be of interest to you: For RVs: For Boats: For Motorcycles and ATVs: Inward Investments: Inward investments might be possible for the RV industry in the development of specialty products and by European manufacturers looking to increase their market share in the U.S. For the bicycle industry foreign investment may be a viable option for custom bike builders especially for those using unique materials.
Opportunities and Challenges In general, U.S. recreational transportation manufacturers see continued global growth for their products. Over the next 10 years leisure time and middle-class disposable income should increase faster in overseas market and the U.S. market Growing markets in Asia led by like China and Latin America led by Brazil show promise for increased exports: Growing Middle Class this levels of disposable income that allow the purchase of these items, Little or no competition from domestic producers and they want the best…want American-made. Particularly for Asian markets, there is a high comfort level with motorcycling but not necessary sporting/large motorcycling. U.S. manufacturers are world leading producers of new technologies: Highest quality products and adaptable to various markets, Only major competitors in world are in Europe (some exceptions). Challenges: U.S. firms so focused on U.S. market. For RVs, many may not have export manager. Foreign consumers may view U.S. products as too big. In markets where European firms have strong market share could it is difficult to sell into. Regulations may favor foreign competition. Some markets may have hybrid regulations that could restrict U.S. products.
