-mekte olmak indicates that the subject is "in the process of doing (something)". It focuses more on the fact that the action is an ongoing process.

"Yürümekteyim." - "I´m (in the process of) walking."

"Kaynamakta olan su." - "Boiling water."

"Gelişmekte olan ülkeler" here means "Developing countries" or "Countries in development"

Whereas "Gelişmiş ülkeler" means "Developed countries". Meaning that the process of development is "finished" (well, developed countries still continue developing technologically but you get the idea).
