I need world bicycle market share data. (who is buying it, who is making it) Can anyone help out? Does anyone know a website, an information source that is free?
I'm a poor student on a budget, so I can't afford these $4000 reports all my web searches come up with. (I mean, already I've started eating less salmon, switching to cheaper foods like baloney sandwiches. I'm still resisting hot dogs though (and still making child support payments) - partly thanks to riding my bike to school in winter and saving on public transit.)
OK, (unfortunately realistic) humor aside...
I need world bicycle market data - I mean, the size of the market by country, market share, where our exports are going to, where our imports are coming from (WHO IN THE WORLD IS MAKING IT, WHO IN THE WORLD IS BUYING IT). Can anyone help out? Does anyone know a website, an information source that is free?
The reason is that I have some inventions I want to patent, but I don't think I can afford a worldwide patent - I'll never raise that much dough. The patenting process allows me to apply, and gives me up to 2 years to pay it all up or substract unneeded countries following marketing research, but it's still steep for me.
If anyone would like to step forward and help me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
And best wishes to all of you for 2005!!!
