    One of the early entrants providing ride-hailing, food delivery, and transportation, Uber decided to leave the fragmented Southeast Asia (SEA) market. Likewise, after operating for 15 years in Singapore, Carrefour has decided to exit Singapore as one of the main reasons is its inability to differentiate from its competitors and retain customers.

    Undoubtedly, Market Entry is a complicated activity involving many strategic business decisions that even multinational corporations can fail. It consists of developing and re-evaluating the product and its positioning in the market. In addition, the company will also need to consider various factors such as barriers to entry, the cost of marketing, sales and delivery, and the estimated demands to enter the new market.
