Low-income markets are taking a lead as new growth engines globally. Spending in these markets is expected to grow three times faster than consumer spending in developed nations. People living on a low-income also have the potential to supply labour, products and services to global markets, which supports income-generation. In this context, businesses are expected to unlock lucrative market opportunities by implementing a few key development goals. However, building and scaling businesses in low-income markets can be complex, costly and risky.
