عنوان مقاله [English]
Exports of Persian hand-woven carpets have been declining in recent years, and this figure has reached less than one tenth of the exports of the last decade. Proper knowledge of the global carpet market and the correct determination of export targets and the correct choice of target countries can help Persian carpet exporters in properly selecting target markets and regaining Iranian market share. In this regard, the purpose of this study is first to identify the global structure of the carpet market and then to determine the target countries for the export of Iranian carpets. This study considers a set of indicators such as the Customs tariff rate, the growth rate of GDP index, the per capita income of countries, the total imports of that country, the amount of direct investment, the amount of handmade carpet imports and the average exports of Persian handmade carpets to destination country. Using the decision method of Shannon and Topsis, it has evaluated 36 target countries for Iran. The results of the research showed that the United States, China, Germany, Brazil, Pakistan and Emirates are the top export destinations. These findings can help Iranian hand-woven carpet activists and exporters to improve the export of their products in the corporate dimension and increase foreign exchange, increase employment and improve the trade balance in the national sector.
