World Economic Growth to Weaken in Years to Come, Highlights Euromonitor in Its Topical Research Report Available at

07 Jun 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Although has been no return to worldwide recession yet, the newest indicators for the global economy signify a weakening, with the business mood taking a turn for the worse. In that vein, the world GDP growth is forecast to decline to 3% throughout 2016 and to 3.2% in 2017. The risks are downside this year. The global stock markets are on path to recovery from the sharp declines seen in early 2016, but financial sustainability has gone down and risk-aversion is picking up, lending conditions in the global markets are tightening, and the power of monetary policy is disputable.

Consequently, business confidence and consumer and sentiment indices are declining in the developed countries, and this is likely to impact investment and consumption decisions.

Emerging marketplaces are currently suffering from a considerable slowdown in the inflows of capital and, which is even worse, the outflows of capital.

Topical research publication “Global Economic Forecasts: Q2 2016” prepared by Euromonitor International gives an all-round picture of the economic conditions across the markets worldwide during the second quarter of 2016. The report identifies the key factors driving change as of now and in the offing; gives in-depth insights into the motivating factors. It provides a forward-looking outlook, sheds light on the various macro trends, covers risk scenarios, and provides the up-to-the-minute estimates and respective authoritative comments.

Regions and countries discussed: the US, the euro area, the UK, Japan, China, Russia, Brazil and India.
