If many observers do consider Emerging Markets are not as attractive as there were in the past decade, they miss the big point. As Mc Kinsey (2016) revealed it, emerging markets companies have reached the critical size thanks to an aggressive policy of revenues increase, they can from now on improve their efficiency through constant restructuring. As such the demand dependency will be lower for them…
But the necessity for developed markets companies to expand internationally remains. Therefore the focus on emerging markets should prevail.
India with Modi at his head offers the most promising growth in the world. On top of that the relatively low GDP/capita, inferior to 2.000 USD, enables a powerful lever in activities based on volume. However, entering the South Asia giant market remains as difficult as it was at Alexander the Great times if you expand without guidelines.

If commodities remain the most seeked resources, the willingness to enhance local demand is always more patent in countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya and Ivory Coast. Now, finding out the right agent and maneuvering through geopolitical upheavals require the support of a local specialist.
The Russian Federation seems less attractive with the embargo and the conflict in Ukraine and Syria. However, the organization of the football World Cup in 2018 can enlighten perspectives for companies in the infrastructure as well as for companies providing high customer experience. Moreover, being within Russia can provide your company a huge opportunity in terms of access to all Eurasian markets. Now, Russia is not a country for rookies in terms of export. It required financial muscle and constant guidance to avoid possible tricks. However, never forget that Russia can become the bigger market for the EU in twenty years. If this opportunity had not been given by EU to Germany at the end of WWII, EU would be far less powerful day as recently..
