Build Best-In-Class Pricing Strategies to Counter Market Volatility

A comprehensive overview of best-in-class pricing strategies for companies in emerging markets. Learn how to build a bulletproof pricing strategy that counters currency volatility, competitive pressures, and increasingly price-sensitive customers.

Currency volatility, competitive pressures, and more price-sensitive customers are pressuring multinational companies’ emerging-market pricing processes and strategies.

In this environment, companies cannot afford to make slow, ad hoc, and tactical decisions on pricing, as these could cost both market share and profitability. Instead, companies should improve their global pricing processes to make more efficient, locally informed decisions on prices that are driven by strategic objectives, rather than short-term concerns.

This report analyzes where companies’ pricing processes fall short in emerging markets and provides frameworks, tools, benchmarking data, and case studies on how to improve them. The report also includes a series of case studies on tactics companies can use to improve the effectiveness of their pricing in an environment of high currency volatility.
