They are followed by Pakistan, Indonesia, and Egypt to close out the ranks of the five fastest growing TDMs in the world. Including Iran and Turkey, the sixth and seventh ranked TDMs by growth, respectively, consumers in the five fastest growing TDMs after India and China (“The Next-5 TDMs“) collectively represent purchasing power that is nearly equal in size to that of India.
