Special Report – Towards 2050: Megatrends In Industry, Politics And The Global Economy

BMI has just published a special report outlining the megatrends shaping our world between now and 2050. We identify how these megatrends will shape sectors such as agribusiness, automotives, food & drink, ICT, infrastructure, metals & mining, oil & gas, power, and pharmaceuticals & medical devices. We also outline how the world order, Latin America, Europe, Russia & the CIS, the Middle East & North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Asia-Pacific will change over the next 35 years.

Unsurprisingly, much of our report is dedicated to technological changes in the industries outlined above. However, demographic and climate also feature prominently, as does geopolitics. For our part, we chose 2050 because it is far enough in the future to allow for a more radical vision of the world based on existing trends, but not so far out as to make our projections too nebulous.

Overall, we have brought together BMI Research’s extensive expertise on core industries and combined it with our macroeconomic and political outlooks from our Country Risk team to present a holistic vision of the changes that the world will see in the remainder of the first half of the 21st century.
