Emerging markets are countries that have some characteristics of a developed market but are not yet a fully developed market. A key difference between emerging markets and emerging economies is that emerging markets are not fully described by, or constrained to, geography or economic strength whereas emerging economies are constrained by political and geographic boundaries. These countries are experiencing rapid growth and industrialization and are attractive due to higher risk and return premium over already developed countries. Here you can find various country reports of all the emerging markets.
