Marketing has become a universal global activity though it practice varies substantially from country to country due to political, economic, socio-cultural and technical differences across and between countries and regions. As a result, what will work from a marketing perspective in one country may not succeed in others. Customer preferences, competitive pressures, channels of distribution and communications technologies differ considerably. This poses a major challenge to marketing of products and services around the world. The central task of global marketing is to evaluate the extent to which companies need to customise their offerings to different consumers and markets. Using the PEST analysis framework, a range of different product and service sectors will be explored.
