As the dust begins to settle on the largest economic downturn for nearly a century, executives speculating about their future working capital requirements see an increasingly complex picture. General wisdom holds that any growth would occur across a set of emerging economies commonly referred to as the BRICMK markets. It is a culturally and geographically diverse set of countries, which include Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico and South Korea. Notwithstanding the economic correction of 2009, EU businesses have significant and increasing trade exposure to these economies.

For European companies, these markets have been very important. To understand this, and further, how BRICMK markets will remain significant, one needs to study their impact on net working capital (NWC) performance and how companies are managing processes to adjust to this change.
