London 2030: How will the capital's economy change?
London’s economy is growing strongly, easily outpacing both the UK and its nearest European rivals such as Paris and Frankfurt. Significant investments in public infrastructure, office buildings, retailing, and homes all point to widespread optimism that the growth will continue, not just for the next year or two but for many years to come. But how confident should we be about London’s growth trajectory?
London 2030 analyses the trajectory and magnitude of change that is likely to confront London’s economy in the decade and a half from 2015 up to 2030. The study is the result of analysis by our specialist cities forecasting team, and provides unrivalled forecast data sets and in-depth analysis of what trends imply for the scale and structure of the capital’s economy over the next fifteen years, as well as assessment of other factors that might influence growth.
The full research programme is now available for purchase, and is comprised of five research papers:
Our baseline forecasts for London’s economy, population growth and employment to 2030
A forecast comparison between our data and The London Plan
Analysis of housing trends: will a shortage of housing constrain London’s growth?
Assessment of the impact of alternate scenarios, such as a Eurozone crisis, or a stronger performance
Possible drivers of change such as the impact of new technology, or the UK leaving the EU
