Over 2,200 Indian companies are likely to open operations outside the country over the next 15 years, says a new report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on emerging MNCs. The report says the number of companies from emerging markets choosing to set up operations abroad has increased in the past five years, partly due to the rapid pace of globalisation and the revolution in information and communication technologies. This trend is expected to continue over the next 15 years, as new MNCs from emerging economies rise in prominence on the global economic stage. Indian and Chinese companies would lead the way in seeking new markets abroad, who will be joined by companies from Singapore, Russia, Malaysia and South Korea, who will continue to produce a large number of new MNCs. Jairaj Purandare, India Leader for Markets and Industries, PwC, said: â€œIt is encouraging to know that India will replace China as the largest source of new multinationals in the emerging world from 2018 onwards. The key drivers for this are the relative increase in both investment intensity and openness that the Indian economy offers.â€ PwC used econometric techniques to project the number of new MNCs that would arise from a representative sample of 15 emerging economies over the next 15 years. The countries were: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Hungary, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine and Vietnam.
