Abstract: OVERVIEW: Emerging economies, with their vast, untapped markets, present new growth opportunities for multinational companies willing to accommodate the particular needs of these markets. Our study analyzes four innovative fi rms in Asia that became multinational companies on the back of disruptive products developed specifi cally to address the needs of consumers in emerging economies. The cases suggest that fi rms wishing to operate in these markets must be receptive to the opportunities arising from the resource constraints typical of consumers in the markets and willing to develop the capabilities to meet the aggressive price/performance ratios required by consumers. Our study highlights critical R&D and managerial practices that are vital for creating new, affordable products or services for the unserved mass markets in developing countries. This analysis has important implications for reverse innovation. © 2010 Industrial Research Institute, Inc.
