Brief Background on EMEA

EMEA is a designation given to a set of countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for business purposes. Most commonly it is used for sales and marketing purposes but it is also used for other aspects of business including production and logistics. Many large North American and European countries use EMEA as a designation for their efforts in that region. The label helps companies to simplify the vast differences in this region and apply similar strategies and budgets to the region. EMEA is often used when a large company first enters this vast market but later as a company has more resources they may choose to focus more on the sub regions or individual countries within EMEA. It is also important to note that not all companies agree on which countries are included in EMEA. In particular, some of the countries in central Asia are debated being part of EMEA.

Additional Background on the EMEA countries List

The EMEA region consists of more land mass than any of the other business regions (APAC, AMER, or LATAM). The EMEA region also spans 4 continents, Europe, Africa, Asia, and because of Greenland North America as well. It also contains more countries than any of the other regions and arguably covers the most ethnically diverse people groups and languages. When combined the region has around 2000 native languages, though a large percent of the region could at least understand English, French, Arabic, or Russian.  Businesses targeting the region should understand that the EMEA designation is arbitrary and there is very little that makes every country in the region similar to the other except for the fact that their location lies somewhere between 40° W and 53° E by longitude.
