EMERGING MARKETS An emerging market is a country that has features of a developed market but is not yet a developed market. It could be a nation with business or a lot of business activity in the process of rapid growth and industrialization. The eight largest emerging and developing economies by inflation-adjusted GDP are the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), and also MINT (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey).

In general, emerging markets are deemed to be fast-growing economies into
Emerging Markets in Developing Countries India is a less developed country (LDC), with a population exceeding one million, an average per capita GDP of $583, low literacy and high infant mortality rates. There are just five phones and two internet users for every hundred people. Yet it is one of the fastest growing knowledge-based industries in the world.

Regional firms are at sword when there is influx of MNC’s into the market, this when taken as a positive element creates a Glocal firm (Lecture-note of Chung L) which is competitive enough in providing international standards with a local touch similar to those of transnational companies.

Introduction Emerging markets, also known as developing countries, are emerging economies that are investing in further productive capacity. (Amadeo, 2014) South Korea is one of the Asian Tigers along with Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore which have free and highly developed economies in the world.
