Strategic Imperative
Economic Analytics

The constantly shifting nature of the global economic paradigm and the complexity of governmental, geopolitical, and societal evolutions have cast unmatched pressure on corporate decisions, forcing leaders to constantly monitor global economic events and stay abreast of developments. Frost & Sullivan’s Economic Analytics Practice, a powerhouse of economists and strategists who have their finger on the economic pulse of the world, helps business leaders make time-critical decisions. Taking a systematic approach toward analyzing economic and industry dynamics, the practice evaluates complex geopolitical and macroeconomic developments, assesses their real-time impact on global businesses, and predicts economic shifts that will transform businesses.

Strategic Imperatives For Economic Analytics


Undertaking macroeconomic scenario forecasting and developing visioning scenarios to effectively navigate emerging geopolitical shocks


Retooling geographic expansion and go-to market strategies to capitalize on transformative mega trends around economic, demographic, and policy dynamics


Developing innovative business models in keeping with future-focused trends in digital economy and sustainable development


How do you shift from where you are to what you want to become? How do you fill the gap?

Based on those strategic imperatives the gap between where you are now and where you need to be to achieve transformational growth is daunting.

Can Businesses Seize the Massive Transformative Potential of the Halal Economy?

The halal economy is not just a trend. It’s a transformational journey that is gaining momentum, with this sector evolving from a niche space to a mainstream business. With the projected value to grow to $4.6-$5.0 trillion by 2030, it is a force to be reckoned with, driven not only by strong Muslim demographics, but also by the rising demand for halal products and services by non-Muslims. Many non-Muslim consumers are now seeking out halal products and services, recognizing them as a symbol of quality and ethical production. This will help push the halal economy into the mainstream and attract new investors and businesses.

Especially in the context of the ongoing global downturn, businesses could look to expand into halal products and services to expand revenue streams and stay ahead of the curve.

The halal economy is here–Does your company have a unique strategy to approach this emerging sector?

Businesses must be aware of the challenges posed by variances in halal standards and accreditation, which can raise product costs, increasing the urgency to drive standardization and protect consumers from the risk of haram products. Supply chain transparency and visibility are critical in this aspect. Investing in disruptive technologies such as blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions can for instance enhance farm-to-fork traceability and build consumer trust.

What are your key strategies for driving growth in the halal-certified goods and services industry? Are you focusing on geographic expansion, mergers & acquisitions, product development, strategic partnering, or other approaches?

Why is halal economy evolving into a mainstream sector?

The halal economy is evolving from a niche sector to a mainstream sector driven by rising awareness and acceptance of halal products and services among Muslims and non-Muslims, opportunities to boost revenue generation with the addition of halal-certified portfolios, and with growing government policy support. Increasing regulatory and policy support for the halal economy is evidenced through initiatives such as Malaysia’s recent launch of a 2030 halal industry master plan which will strengthen Malaysia’s Halal ecosystem while boosting sectoral competitiveness.

Another key factor contributing to the growth of the halal economy will be the rising affluence of the global Muslim population. As Muslim consumers become increasingly affluent and demand higher-quality halal products and services, businesses have recognized the potential of this growing sector and have responded by developing a wider range of halal offerings.

Have you taken any measures yet to expand your portfolio into halal-certified goods and services to meet the growing OIC and non-OIC demand?

Are the Emerging Economic Hotspots Transforming into Titans of Global Growth?

In an era defined by economic uncertainty and disruptions in global supply chains, businesses worldwide are facing the pressing need to explore new avenues for growth. While advanced economies, plagued by recessionary risks and an aging population, are seeking alternatives to sustain their prosperity, the MUVICS countries (Malaysia, UAE, Vietnam, India, China, and Saudi Arabia) are relatively better insulated and poised to drive medium term global growth.

  • What sectors or industries within the MUVICS countries offer the most promising opportunities for investments and growth in the medium term?
  • How should businesses adapt their strategies to leverage the exceptional investment potential offered?
  • What government policies or initiatives are offered to businesses to attract and facilitate foreign investments?

From Challenges to Opportunities: Exploring the Investment Landscape of MUVICS

Key factors that are increasingly putting pressure on growth and investment decisions are:

  • Geopolitical conflicts have prompted businesses to adopt a country-specific growth approach and target sectors that are less affected by global economic downturns.
  • Transformative megatrends such as rapid urbanization and an aging population require innovative solutions and forward-thinking investment.
  • The emergence and widespread adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) are revolutionizing industries, especially in sectors like infrastructure, healthcare, and security.

Pioneering Transformation: Unleashing Business Growth in MUVICS Countries

In a world where economic slowdown looms large, the MUVICS countries offer a compelling narrative of growth and future potential. These emerging economic hotspots boast diverse economies, robust investment potential, and substantial domestic sectors, creating the perfect recipe for success in a rapidly evolving global landscape. By analyzing critical growth opportunities and policy highlights, businesses can make strategic investment decisions that align with their long-term goals.

  • How has the presence of geopolitical conflicts influenced your investment strategies and approach to growth?
  • How are you adapting your business models and investments to align with transformative megatrends such as rapid urbanization and an aging population?
  • What are the key policy conditions and incentives that businesses can leverage in areas like infrastructure, healthcare, and energy security, to drive resilient growth?

  • What specific industries or sectors within the MUVICS cluster offer the most promising investment opportunities?
  • What support mechanisms are in place to encourage startups and small businesses to thrive and attract investments?
