Eurozone: A rebound in the second half of the year is still on the cards
The eurozone has been heavily affected by the pandemic crisis and the economic recovery remains highly linked to the health situation. We still expect a strong rebound in the second half of this year, with lockdown restrictions being gradually eased and activity picking up pace across all the sectors of the economy. Tourism activity will also resume in 2021, but remaining below pre-pandemic levels. However, the magnitude of the rebound will depend on the success of the vaccine campaigns across the bloc; ongoing obstacles to vaccine production and distribution represent major downside risks for the recovery at this time. On the other side, a potential strong rebound in private consumption could improve the boost later this year and in 2022.

Key themes for 2024 – another year of price weakness
Energy and metal markets have experienced a sharp reversal in prices this year, as we expected, diminishing the Super cycle thesis of our competitors. In this webinar, we examine the key themes affecting commodity markets in 2024 as the energy transition gathers pace and discuss our leading calls for prices in the year ahead. Overall, we expect another year of price weakness as we forecast the global economy to grow at its slowest pace since the global financial crisis, excluding the pandemic. We also anticipate supply to improve across commodity markets next year, which will further weigh on prices.Find Out More
