lacks solidified connections with firms in emerging markets. For instance, after entering the Chinese market, the firm has not been successful in gaining market share, but instead started losing market share due to many local companies grabbing sales, such as Sany Heavy - the principal rival of CAT in China, hence only contributing 3% to CAT’s worldwide sales.
