Below are questions and formulated answers to guide you in completing section II A, B and C.

What is the comparative market size of the industry in each of the BRIC countries by 2015. (Hint: Use something like the number of passenger car registrations to size the automobile industry, other metrics for other industries) and how might that impact your decision on prioritizing the countries in your global business strategy?

If we look at the comparative market size by 2015 we can find that China would be the more strong economy among the BRIC countries in terms of the market size. If we look at the data released by emarketer.com we can find that by 2014 the number of mobile subscriber will rise to 266.5 million in Brazil, 271.5 million in Russia, 1.037.3 billion in India and 1,223.7 billon in china for the year 2015 as compared to 202.9 million Brazil, 229.2 million in Russia, 677.2 million in India and 879.7 million in China for the year 2010. This indicates that China would have huge market share followed by India. So comparatively China tops the rank followed by India.

What is the comparative growth, both in absolute terms and in percentage terms from 2011 to 2015 for the industry you have selected in each of the BRIC countries and how might that impact your decision on prioritizing the countries in your global business strategy?

The comparative growth of the BRIC countries is as follow: In Brazil, the life expectancy at birth is seen to be 73% and the healthy life expectancy is 60%. In Russia, the rate of life expectancy is 66% and the healthy life expectancy is 59%. In India, the rate of life expectancy is 64% and the healthy life expectancy is 54%. The rate of life expectancy in China is 74% and the healthy life expectancy is 64.5% (Future Growth, 2010).

This information impacts the decision on prioritizing the countries in the global business strategy through revealing the opportunities that the countries can seek in order to gain a competitive advantage. The other impact of this information is that it causes an improvement of healthcare activities within the country. This is because the countries develop policies that will ensure that a healthy life expectancy is generally increased in order to match the actual life expectancy in the country. Another impact of this information in prioritizing of the countries in the global business strategy is that it increases interaction within the countries. This interaction is enhanced to learn the different health practices that are followed within countries with high healthy life expectancy as in case of China. Developing these practices will assist the other BRIC countries and thus increase the health life expectancy.

The key company player of health care in the Brazil is the National Health Service clinics who services 80% of the countries residents. The rest of the 20% in Brazil are mostly the affluent people who prefer private or public services of healthcare. In Russia, the key company player of the healthcare industry is the Private Healthcare Markets in Russia. This is because of the difficulties that exist in the public healthcare service in Russia. The key company player in India include Apollo Life, Sun Healthcare, Nicholas Piramal India Private Limited, Wipro GE Healthcare, Serum Institute of India Limited, Cipla, Advanced Healthcare Resources of India, Whole Health Now, Cadilla Healthcare and IndoGlobal Health Sciences. The key company player in China is the government and the other private sectors play a major role in the China Healthcare.

This information impacts the decision on prioritizing the countries in the global business strategy by revealing the opportunities that are available within the countries. For instance, this information reveals that in China, there are a lot of customers requiring healthcare services in the country. In addition to this, this information can be used to in order to integrate the activities that that are found to be productive from one country to another. In Brazil for example, the National Health Service clinics can implement their activities so as to improve the healthcare globally. This information helps to impact the prioritizing of the country through analyzing the health performances within the country. This information can be utilized so as to improve the healthcare activities in Russia, whose public healthcare is poor. This increases the efficiency in the healthcare industry of the country thus improving competition around the world.
