English term or phrase: the grey market
Hello,
I would like to know what this expression means! Before sending ,I looked this term up in the economic financial D. and also I searched in the glossary of this website; I found السوق الموازية او السوق الرمادية .What does this mean?Is there anyother equivalent? It is an economic text talking about a country that remained the largest suplier of the memory chips through the GREY MARKET! I have heard of the black and the blue market but what the grey means!
Thank you in advance!

السوق الرمادية
Explanation:
The grey market (in U.S. spelling, gray market) refers to the flow of goods through distribution channels other than those authorized by the manufacturer or producer.

Unlike those on the black market, grey market goods are not illegal. Instead, they are being sold outside of normal distribution channels by companies which may have no relationship with the producer of the goods. Frequently this occurs when the price of an item is significantly higher in one country than another; this situation commonly occurs with cigarettes, electronic equipment such as cameras. Entrepreneurs will buy the product where it is available cheaply, often at retail but sometimes at wholesale, import it legally to the target market and sell it a price which provides a profit but which is below the normal market price there.
