Who produces for whom in the world economy?

  • Guillaume Daudin
  • Christine Rifflart
  • Danielle Schweisguth

For two decades, the share of trade in inputs, also called vertical trade, has been dramatically increasing. In reallocating trade flows to their original input-producing industries and countries, this paper suggests a new measure of international trade: `value-added trade' and makes it possible to answer the question `who produces for whom?' In 2004, 27% of international trade was vertical trade. The industrial and geographic patterns of value-added trade are very different from those of standard trade. Value-added trade is relatively less important in regional trade but the difference is not more important for Asia than for America.
