Description

Despite the global economy outperforming expectations and avoiding a recession in 2023, Frost & Sullivan expects a mild growth slowdown in 2024 as tight monetary conditions, diminishing consumer confidence, weak trade prospects, and subdued housing markets in key regions weigh on momentum.

However, with policymakers managing to put inflation on a more controlled path in 2023, the narrative in 2024 will start to shift toward the reversal of synchronized rate hikes and the revival of growth and investment, particularly in advanced economies. Even as countries continue to face a volatile geopolitical environment and persistent regional divergences in 2024, it will be equally important for organizations to prepare for the tailwinds that will emerge from a pullback in interest rate hikes, receding price pressures, and steady policy support for growth industries such as transport and infrastructure, green energy, semiconductors, and automotive.

This 2024 macroeconomic thought leadership provides key insights on global and regional economic scenarios through growth trajectory analysis and regional comparisons. It provides foresight for businesses and policymakers on top global predictions covering commodity prices, labor markets, critical minerals supply chains, and the global interest rate environment.

Based on an in-depth analysis of megatrends and regional policy outlook, Frost & Sullivan has detailed key macroeconomic growth opportunities for businesses in 2024. This deliverable defines the context of these opportunities and provides a detailed analysis of them that organizations should leverage to achieve resilient growth.
