"Economic factors. The global wealth has reached consistent growth rates in the last years. The numbers have had dramatic changes in East Asia, considerably high changes in South-Pacific Asia and substantial in Europe and Japan. After analyzing these trends, it seems that the highest growth rates and in the poorest countries with emerging economies (see fig.1&2). Nevertheless, increased wealth growth rates translate into a higher potential turnover in those regions and/or countries.
"Social factors. By being present in 116 countries, the company has to deal with a wide cultural diversity. Its employees and customers come from a variety of nations with different cultural identities. Different nations have different oral care habits, which imply that the marketing strategies have to be adapted to the local markets. Customers are also educated when it comes to this type of habit. Thus, GSK adapts its oral care education programs to the local habits and needs."
