Globalization has forced many emerging markets to innovate new ways to remain competitive and attract investments in those countries. India represents a major emerging market struggling with major economic challenges that have resulted to the use of innovative technologies and strategies to capture the world's attention. Globalization has, therefore, forced companies to take up innovative activities in order to remain relevant both locally and internationally. This paper seeks to investigate the implications of globalization on innovative activities of firms by analyzing business environment features in India.

For the purposes of this paper, the business environment in India will be classified as planned developing economy.

The government embarked on innovative activities that would attract investments in the country and improve the business environment in the country. Globalization has led to the country's current development path. Features such as technology, infrastructure, industrialization, and modernization are key elements that are driving innovativeness in the country.

This development resulted from the efforts put in strengthening formal research and development sectors of the economy (Utz and Dahlman, 2007). [...]


[...] Lack of investment in the country may result to fewer companies investing in innovative activities in India. Corruption: Hambrock and Hauptmann (2014) indicate that corruption is one of the biggest hindrances to investment in India. While this vice is prevalent in many emerging markets, it presents a huge challenge to development and establishment of innovative activities by firms in India. Loopholes in government procedures allow corrupt individuals to stall establishment of companies in the country, which in turn, hinder the country's development. [...]
