Asia-Pacific is Expected to Dominate the Market Landscape
Asia-Pacific still boasts significant opportunities due to favorable demographics and economic conditions. The GDP of developing countries for all these years is proof of their economic expansion. As a result, multinational companies continue to expand their global footprint to Asia-Pacific to gain a competitive edge in the market. Several companies in the region have preferred innovation by launching or customizing their existing product portfolios to cater to new consumer segments. The emerging markets and their rural population of the region will play a major role in the market.
