Research and Markets Logo

This report presents the downside and upside scenarios that multinational companies should evaluate to ensure that their strategic plans are resilient when the unexpected occurs.

The report is a companion to the base-case scenarios outlined in our Global Outlook for 2020 and our most recent Regional Outlooks. While our base-case forecast for 2020 expects global growth to stabilize at lower levels, propped up by stable consumer spending growth in key markets, the global economy remains in the middle of a global manufacturing slowdown that has led to inventory builds, weak commodity prices, and a gloomy industrial production outlook across developed and emerging markets.

There are significant risks that growth could fall due to ongoing trade wars; weak macroeconomic growth in the US, China, and the eurozone; and geopolitical risks that could disrupt key shipping routes and trigger spikes in global oil prices. MNCs should engage in scenario-analysis exercises and develop robust contingency plans to stay ahead of their competition.
