US corporations exposure in developing countries

U.S. corporations, however, have considerable exposure to developing economies. In 2011, 34 percent of sales by U.S. multinationals’ majority-owned foreign affiliates were in emerging markets, up from 25 percent in 2000. 

Emerging markets figure even more prominently in U.S. companies' overseas expansion plans. In 2011, developing countries accounted for 42 percent of capital spending by those affiliates, compared with 30 percent in 2000.
