It is difficult to develop a product market:
Because the data sources and credit histories that firms draw on in the West don't exist in emerging markets.
Market research and advertising are in their infancy in developing countries, and it's difficult to find the deep databases on consumption patterns that allow companies to segment consumers in more-developed markets.
The capital and financial markets in developing countries are remarkable for their lack of sophistication:
There aren't many reliable intermediaries like credit-rating agencies, investment analysts, merchant bankers, or venture capital firms.
Like investors, creditors don't have access to accurate information on companies
Businesses can't easily assess the creditworthiness of other firms or collect receivables after they have extended credit to customers
Because of poor corporate governance, transnational companies can't trust their partners to adhere to local laws and joint venture agreements.
