Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the market for cross-border mergers and acquisitions (CB-M&A) representing the Asian emerging market-India for the period 1991 through 2010. I also compare the market in India among the BRIC economies (Brazil, Russia and China (including Hong Kong)) for various reasons. To do so, I use statistical data on CB-M&A transactions from UNCTAD’s World Investment Report-2011, and discuss potential changes in the market performance based on inductive and deductive logics and case examples. I check macroeconomic indicators of the BRIC group in order to support the economic, banking and financial reforms in India. Further, I highlight the internationalization process of Indian firms by supporting the data on parent corporations and foreign affiliates. I eventually draw conclusions from India’s share as a percentage of the world economy, developing economies, BRIC group and Asia. All in all, India is next to China for all selected categories.
