“By 2030, more than 80 percent of the world’s middle class will live in the South and account for 70 percent of total consumption expenditure. The Asia-Pacific region alone will host about two-thirds of that middle class. The combined economic output by 2020 of three leading developing countries alone—Brazil, China and India—will surpass the aggregate production of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States.” – UNDP Human Development Report – 2013

This trend is inevitable. So whether you are a firm based in the developed market or a firm in the frontier market looking to understand the “growth of the emerging and frontier markets”, things could be tacky.
