The report released on Monday lists 100 companies that are believed to be the “global challengers,” which are the ever-developing corporations edging into the global market with outstanding performance. Of the total, 28, or over one fourth, come from China.
“Chinese companies are the largest block on this list, so by the sheer size of the position, they will have more impact than anyone else,” according to Dinesh Khanna, a coauthor and leader of BCG’ s Global Advantage practice
Among the listed Chinese companies are Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., Citic Group, Dalian Wanda Group Co., Xiaomi Corp. and China Eastern Airlines Corp.
“We believe these companies represent the next wave of economic growth, ” Khanna said.
Companies from emerging economies have occupied over 40 percent of the global market share in industries ranging from household appliances to construction and real estate, the report showed.

Today’s many challengers are appealing to the hopes and dreams of middle-class consumers in emerging markets and elsewhere,” said Michael Meyer, a coauthor and partner based in Singapore.
Despite economic turbulence in different countries, the revenue and profits of the 100 companies have mainly kept steady. Overall, they have quadrupled their overseas revenue to 944 billion US dollars from 2005 to 2014.
These companies, in their developing process, have also embarked on the purchase of foreign firms in a bid to expand scale, explore new markets or pursue technical enhancement, the report noted.
