Tarification au marché et variation des marges à l'exportation. Une étude des prix d'exportation allemands, français et italiens
This paper analyzes the impact of increasing international competition on the evolution of export prices in the last three decades. We investigate both the sensitivity of export prices to exchange rate movements, and the dynamics of profit margins for a large number of manufacturing products exported by France, Germany and Italy. We find that export price dynamics are mainly determined by source and destination market characteristics, whereas product specific features do not appear to play a crucial role. For what concerns export margins, we find that on average they have either remained stable or augmented in the last three decades. While estimated coefficients have to be taken with caution, our results suggest that the increased international integration seems not to have reduced firms’ market power.
