Global market research company Euromonitor International released today a new white paper “Global Economies and Consumers in 2017”.
Euromonitor International analysts predict 2017 will be marked by slowing growth in consumer expenditure in developed markets. With many of these countries struggling to raise productivity, weighed down by debt and ageing population, stagnation represents a threat. The Eurozone will continue to see anaemic growth, with a slowdown in all major economies next year.
Sarah Boumphrey, global lead of economies and consumers at Euromonitor International comments: “In emerging and developing markets, real consumer spending growth is expected to strengthen in 2017, driven by markets such as China, India and the ASEAN. Brazil and Russia are expected to return to growth next year, albeit weak growth. India should continue to perform well, with the strongest growth in all major markets, although downside risks stem from demonetisation.”
Among the trends to watch in 2017:
With the global economy entering a period of political volatility, Euromonitor analysts explore the economic landscape in 2017, taking in top trends within Business Dynamics, Cities, Economy, Finance and Trade, Industrial, Natural Resources, Digital Consumer, Households, Income and Expenditure and Population.
