Factors behind the Potential Emergence of Markets
Survey question: Please rank, in order of importance, the key drivers that make a country an important emerging market.
The top two drivers of growth in emerging logistics
markets remained ‘economic growth’ and ‘FDI’ in
2017. Given the correlation between wider economic
expansion and growing demand for logistics services,
the continued emphasis placed on this as the top factor
is not surprising. It is perhaps likely this will continue, too,
with general economic growth playing an important role in
encouraging spending within consumer markets, pulling
larger amounts of the population into the middle class
and increasing levels of public spending on infrastructure
projects and other public services.
