In developed markets, average unemployment rates will reach their lowest levels since 2008, although markets such as Greece and Spain will still struggle. Automation will play a large role in 2016, and is concentrated mostly in Asia and Australia at the moment. Labour forces in emerging markets are changing as well, shifting away from primary industries to tertiary industries.
