3 What is an “Emerging Market”? An emerging market economy (EME) is defined as an economy with low to middle per capita income. The term was coined in 1981 by Antoine W. Van Agtmael of the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank. EMEs are characterized as transitional, meaning they are in the process of moving from a closed economy to an open market economy while building accountability within the system.

4 What is an “Emerging Market”? Emerging markets, also known as emerging economies or developing countries, are nations that are investing in more productive capacity. They are moving away from their traditional economies that have relied on agriculture and the export of raw materials.

5 What is an “Emerging Market”? This term is used loosely to describe countries that are exhibiting increasing growth in purchasing and usage of a product of interest – and are crossing over from a point where the market is too small or too difficult to work in, to one where conducting business there yields a new and attractive marketplace. “Emergence” among markets for medical products, supplies and services is normally associated with growth in affluence of the population, increasing stability of government structures, and policies and attitudes that promote better healthcare than in the past.
