We next present the distribution of hybrid and DPE exporters along combined extensive and intensive margins as we did for overall exporters. Table 6A shows that most hybrids export five or more products to five or more destinations. This is in contrast to overall exporters, many of whom export just a single product to a single market as shown above. In terms of value, it is striking that the 3.2% of hybrids that export 30 or more products to 30 or more markets account for just under half of all exports by hybrid traders. Hybrid trade is dominated by a few large and well-diversified traders. The same message carries over to DPEs. As shown in Table 6B, the 5.2% of all DPEs that export 30 or more products to 30 or more markets account for 64.3% of total exports by DPEs.
