Economies in 2019

Global economic growth to slow in 2019

Growth momentum in many of the world’s economies might have peaked. Global annual real GDP growth is forecast to decline from 3.7% in 2018 to 3.6% in 2019:

Low interest rates and high private confidence will continue supporting global growth. However, rising trade war uncertainty and slowing global trade pose major risks to the outlook.

Advanced economies’ annual real GDP growth is anticipated to weaken from 2.3% in 2018 to 2.1% in 2019:

The effects of US fiscal stimulus are forecast to start fading, while trade tensions have escalated. Private sector confidence has declined in the eurozone and the block is forecast to continue losing growth momentum. Slow productivity in advanced economies also hinders growth potential.

Emerging economies’ annual real GDP growth is estimated to remain steady at 4.7% in 2018 and 2019:

China will continue on a slowdown path; however, it appears to be consistent with a soft landing. Emerging market vulnerability has increased.

Emerging economies are estimated to account for 77.0% of global real GDP growth in 2019.
