The market of Azerbaijan Republic can be defined as emerging market in transition economy. There is almost no any directly related literature to Azerbaijan market that can be a good source to identify business strategies that must be pursued in this market. But because Azerbaijan market has all main features of other emerging markets, any literature relating to emerging markets or transition economies can be reviewed to provide companies with necessary insight about how can be successful in this market. The term emerging markets is used to define markets of developing countries that grow very rapidly and that are in the process of industrialization.
