Traditional markets such as the U.S. and Europe provide limited growth opportunities to Western companies due to the market saturation and shrinking middle-class. Thus, targeting middle-class in emerging markets increases profit and growth opportunities. In this context, Brazil is one of the most promising emerging markets regarding the size of the middle-class. In this paper, we examine opportunities and challenges of doing business in Brazil. We discuss the size and progress of the Brazilian middle-class based on the results of Georgia State University CIBER Middle-class Scorecard. Moreover, we highlight responses of some Brazilian companies to the economic crisis and propose six strategies for multinationals to exploit market opportunities in Brazil.
