Aggregate valuation estimates for market access barriers

This report contains analysis illustrating the potential value of export opportunities associated with the removal of a selection of market access barriers.



This analysis draws upon the methodological approaches developed in DIT to produce indicative estimates of the value associated with a barrier. This report will inform decision making such as which barriers should be prioritised for government action. These methodological approaches were set out in more detail in Market access barrier statistics: financial year 2020 to 2021.

This analytical working paper sets out:

  • aggregate valuation estimate for a selection of unresolved market access barriers

  • aggregate valuation estimate for a selection of market access barriers resolved in the latest financial year 2021 to 2022.

  • individual valuation summary for a selection of resolved and unresolved barriers

This was published originally by Department for International Trade (DIT) which has since moved to the Department for Business and Trade (DBT).
