For the present research project the LRhave been presented in form of themes which are taken form the research objectives toinvestigate the impact of globalization over profitably of Tesco through cross border sales.Theme 1 Trend of globalization and associated benefits.According to Beck (2018), globalization implies for the process which is undertaken bythe business units for international influence. In other words, in the globalized now businessunits are encouraged to start business operations in overseas market. Asper the viewsAwan(2016), in the present time the major trend of globalization is related with expansion of themarkets by allowing wider access to the potential market places and more consumers. Thisdirectly have a positive effect on the profits of business as expansion increases sales and this inturn ensures higher profitability.On the other handSteger (2017)presented the view that globalization's major trend isincreasing the sales cross borders and different nations. With proving products as per the demandand preference of the consumers belonging to different nations the sales revenues are increasedby business organization in order to seek higher profits.Pieterse (2019), stated in the study thatglobalization enables firm to enhance profit by getting economies of scale. Moreover, businessunit gets discounts when it operates at large level.Theme 2 Contribution of globalization on cross border trade practices of business.According to the opinion ofPicciotto, (2017)globalization means to promote trade andcommerce in different countries of the world and melting down the national bordered for trade.This has increased the opportunities for the business organisation of selling their goods andservices in nations around the world.Sundaram (2018) mentioned in the study that globalizationhas increased the integration of the business with other corporation of the world as well. Thus, byusing strategies such as merger, acquisition, joint venture etc firm can trade at global levelsuccessfully.Conversely, it is stated byCoulibaly, Erbaoand and Mekongcho (2018)that with goingglobal the business strategies of the organization have been changes immensely as before thebusiness used to make polices and strategies for selling in one nation but with globalization it haschanged.Croucher (2018) presented thatnow the business makes strategies and polices for
operating in more than one nation. With the practices of the business have also changes incontext of manufacturing and selling of goods and servings various nations.Theme 3: Impact of globalization on growth and profitability of business.In accordance with the opinion ofSurugiu and Surugiu (2015)it can be stated thatglobalization have a direct impact on the growth of business as going global means to expandbusiness operation on business in other nation and expansion is a sign of business growth. Withthe growth and expansion the profits are sought to raise with a grater pace as compared to thecurrent profitability rate of the organization.On the contrary it is stated byWood,Wrigley and Coe (2016)that with increasing theglobal operation through the profits might rise but the cost and expresses of the business shoot toa higher level which do not ensure the goods profits to a business. It rather shows the risk offailure and the business can over burdened with higher expenses and lower profits.Bozyk (2019)identified that globalization enables firm to explore its customer by operating internationally. Inthis way, widen customer reach facilitates both maximization of both productivity andprofitability. However, Ashenfelter and et.al., (2018), criticized globalized business environmenton the basis its uncertainty. Moreover, if political, economic, social, technological, legal etcfactors of global business arena are not favorable then it negatively impacts profitability aspects.Rodrik (2018) said that in the case of globalization company has opportunity to increaseprofitability aspect by entering in emerging market. Moreover, one market, in the context ofspecific products and services is saturated after some times. In this situation, company hasopportunity to improve financial aspect by selling product or services in the economies wherepotential exists.
