Your gateway to emerging markets

The Emerging Markets Center is our "Center of Excellence" that quickly and effectively connects you to the world's fastest-growing economies.

Our continuous investment in them allows us to share the breadth of our knowledge through a wide range of initiatives, tools and applications. We offer businesses in both mature and emerging markets an in-depth and cross-border approach, supported by our leading and highly globally integrated structure.

The world has changed and will continue to change. By 2020, rapid-growth markets are expected to account for 50% of the global GDP when measured at purchasing power parity, 38% of the world consumer spending and 55% of the world fixed capital investment.

In this environment, we are well prepared to help and support you either in creating or expanding on your emerging markets strategy.

For everything you need to know about these markets, the opportunities they offer and the best ways to manage challenges, please visit our Emerging Markets Center.

A two-step methodology analyzes both the reality and perception of FDI in the respective country and region. Findings are based on the views of representative panels of international and local opinion leaders and decision-makers.
