GIL 100 Sales and Investment Attractiveness Index—Information & Communication Technologies

GIL 100 Sales and Investment Attractiveness Index—Information & Communication Technologies


Given the volatility of the world economies, decision making on investing and selling is a challenge. While wealthy countries registered very slow growth rates, emerging markets displayed great resilience since the global economic slowdown of 2008. The options to increase profitability are to locate new markets to augment sales or to seek opportunities for investment. Emerging markets are ideal, as they present opportunities in both.

The newly developed Growth, Innovation, and Leadership GIL-100 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Sales and Investment Attractiveness Indices combine key indicators on growth, innovation, and leadership, vetted by Frost & Sullivan analysts. The indices provide systematic and customizable tools to gain insight on target markets.

The GIL ICT indices will help companies with the following:

Making analytical decisions about optimal markets for ICT sales and investment by highlighting the key characteristics of the markets for these two different but inter-related purposes

Moving away from the narrow BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) focus to a broader set of untapped dynamic countries that can provide strong investment and sales opportunities

Understanding the broader set of factors, including innovation and political, that combine with economic growth to influence investment and sales success

The GIL-100 ICT Sales and Attractiveness Indices are generalized models and can be specifically engineered for unique client growth objectives. Frost & Sullivan’s Growth Consulting teams can customize the model to meet specific client requirements.
