Nordic opportunities in emerging markets - status, challenges and room for action

  • Publisert 19.06.2012
Fast growing emerging economies represent great opportunities for Nordic businesses and constitute important arenas for economic growth of the Nordic countries.

 In order to seize the opportunities and turn them into growth and progress, companies and policy makers need to adopt a more innovative global mind set. This calls for a coordinated effort amongst the innovation and export agencies in the Nordic countries.


Insights on Nordic company interaction with emerging markets

A ‘Nordic Emerging Market Study’, was conducted for Nordic Innovation in the spring of 2011 by Dalberg Global Development Advisors. The purpose of the study was to provide an overview of the Nordic companies’ presence in emerging markets; describe perceived barriers for market entry; and analyze the variety of existing support schemes. The investigated support mechanisms encompass public and private funding schemes and advisory services, which are available for companies looking to either enter or expand their presence in emerging markets.


This report builds on an updated version of the 2011 study, which relied on an in-depth desk study and expert interviews with public and private organizations and 25 Nordic companies spanning from large corporations to SMEs.
