As more countries especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America begin to industrialize, P&G can continue to expand their geographic segments. Not only have they penetrated the countries themselves, but they have penetrated different segments in the consumer market. With 300 brands in 3 very distinct divisions, P&G has been able to diversify and capture a larger market share. As for business segments, the company has 3 divisions which are Beauty and Grooming, Health and Wellness, and Household Care Products. All of these divisions are operated by a centralized business structure that works to make the business the most efficient it can be (“Core Strengths,” 2011). In addition to this centralization of the product divisions, the company also has a Market Development Organization (MDO) to tailor marketing strategies in each geographic area. This ability to target a specific market has allowed P&G to continue to gain the market share in emerging markets.
