Global industry forecast update: Momentum is building

with Jeremy Leonard and Nico Palesch | Online | June 13, 2024

After two years of relatively sluggish activity we see signs that the worst has passed for global industry. Join our global industry team to get the latest on why we think the turnaround is imminent and in which regions and sectors it will be most keenly felt. Major themes include Europe, which has dug itself into a deep hole with respect to manufacturing activity over the past year, and why we think it on the verge of turning the corner back to growth and how US industry is expected to cope in and after what is expected to be a closely-fought and volatile election year. In the Asia-Pacific region we will discuss how Japan is dealing with the aftermath of the Daihatsu production line scandal that seriously dented Q1 industrial output and the extent to which China can continue relying on manufacturing sector output to boost overall growth amidst a volatile global environment, the threat of tariffs, and persistent worries around overcapacity.

Navigating supply chain decoupling – prioritizing opportunities with OE’s Market Compass tool

with Alex Mackle and Martina Bozadzhieva | Online | May 30, 2024

As companies de-risk their supply chains, many are looking at ways to reduce their dependence on China, and to create more flexible, regionalized supply chain structures. In this webinar, we look at the latest trends in supply chain restructuring and introduce OE's Market Compass tool. The tool allows companies to compare countries as manufacturing investment destinations using OE's proprietary data and forecasts. We'll explore how different countries compare in our global ranking and how companies can take a data-driven approach to evaluating manufacturing localization options.

During the webinar, we will shed light on our thinking about world and European outlooks and their influence on the CEE region in general and the Polish economy in particular. We will scrutinize both growth and inflation prospects, views on monetary and fiscal policies as well as implications for FX and bond yields performance.

Global Climate Service – Differentiated outcomes

with Beatrice Tanjangco, Felicity Hannon and Charlie Muir | Online | April 22, 2024

The Global Climate Service quantifies the macroeconomic impacts of six climate scenarios against our Oxford Economics baseline. These scenarios help businesses understand the trade-offs and implications of climate mitigation. This quarter, we examine the cross-country and cross-scenario effects in more detail. This helps us better understand how different economic structures and policies can result in differing economic impacts from climate risk. For this webinar, we do a deep dive on select countries such as the US, China, and France.

China’s New Manufacturing Push

with Louise Loo | Online | April 10, 2024

China’s industrial policy has played a pivotal role in its growth strategy over the past few decades. A renewed state-led push into “new industrialisation” and the “new productive forces” has the potential to accelerate the country’s move up the manufacturing value chain, but could also invite greater protectionist backlash and heighten China’s vulnerability to external demand shocks. We discuss these dynamics in greater detail and invite questions from our readers.

As part of this, we will touch on global and regional trends for outbound travel, and consider the latest developments and outlook for the recovery of the Chinese outbound market. This includes the continued importance of China as a driver of demand relative to other growing markets, and the implications for a range of destinations.

A health-check on China’s real estate and construction industries: Are we still on life support?

with Louise Loo, Nicholas Fearnley and April Skinner | Online | April 2, 2024

China’s property downturn continues to weigh on the outlook. Can we be hopeful that the economy will successfully decouple from its old property-led growth model? How much of an offset can state-led construction provide as authorities look to prop the economy up? Join us in a discussion between Louise Loo our China Macro-economist and April Skinner our China Construction economist, as we address some of the FAQs around China’s housing and construction sectors and take a pulse-check on property’s multi-year correction process. Key talking points: How far does China’s real estate downturn have to go? What are the longer term implications for building construction? How much can state-led infrastructure projects prop up the economy? Will the “New Three" Industries keep the economy afloat? Supply chain risks and what this means for costs and construction.

Industry to rebuild momentum in 2024

with Abby Samp and Max Anderson | Online | March 14, 2024

As 2024 progresses global industrial activity should pick up and begin to rebuild some momentum. Pass-through from lower wholesale energy prices, a move past the peak of impacts from past rate hikes and a trough in the de-stocking cycle should benefit manufacturing activity in the advanced economies. In China, manufacturing activity is likely to be highly asymmetric in 2024, with growth concentrated in the energy transition adjacent ‘New Three’ industries, while the ongoing property sector slump will curtail construction and its supply chain.

Asia’s medium term growth outlook and its implications for major cities

with Arup Raha and Scott McEwan | Online | February 28, 2024

Over the next five years, economic growth across Asia is likely to diverge especially with two of the giants moving in opposite directions; China slowing and India starting to realise its potential. This has implications for how the cities in these two countries are likely to expand. Major cities in southeast Asia area expected to perform relatively well but there are contrasting fortunes elsewhere. For example, in advanced Asia, the major cities of Australia should exhibit an impressive rate of jobs growth. Our expectations for the likes of Melbourne and Perth contrasts starkly with major East Asian cities in Japan and South Korea, where the pressures of ageing populations is dragging on the potential for growth in output and jobs. We present both a top-down medium-term macro outlook and tie that to how major cities in Asia are likely to develop over the next 5 years.

China: Will the ‘New Three’ industries prove an economic game-changer?

with Louise Loo | Online | February 2, 2024

A step-up in decarbonisation efforts has boosted growth in the new industries of electric vehicles, batteries, and renewables in China. To what extent are these proving to be the economy's new growth drivers? What can authorities do about the risk of overcapacity? Can these industries offset the macro drag from a shrinking housing sector?

China in 2024: What will the Year of the Dragon bring?

with Louise Loo | Online | December 11, 2023

We discuss our outlook and macro themes for China in 2024. Without a reopening boost, the economy amid a multi-year credit clean-up process, and persistent regulatory uncertainties onshore, a more tenuous macro environment is likely to necessitate easier-for-longer policy settings.

Why the crisis in crisis resolution could go on for decades

with Gabriel Sterne and Maya Senussi | Online | October 18, 2023

Stricken sovereigns are suffering as China and the Western-dominated IMF Board engage in a titanic wrestling match over crisis-resolution architecture. It’s a massive problem that could be a destructive force for decades. In considering the arguments there’s one thing that almost all commentary has missed: China has a strong case to feel wronged.

Commodities: prospects uncertain amid tepid Chinese demand, Fed tightness and potential further OPEC+ supply reductions

with Kiran Ahmed and Diego Cacciapuoti | Online | September 19, 2023

Commodity markets remain carefully balanced amid uncertain Chinese demand, a tighter Fed policy outlook and the potential for further supply reductions by OPEC+ members. Recent stimulus efforts aimed at the Chinese property sector have given some cause for optimism but doubts remain as to the longevity of any demand rally. At the same time, the natural gas sector readies itself for the winter season amid significantly improved circumstances than were present this time last year.

EM policy pivots ahead of AEs as investment takes a hit

with Gabriel Sterne and Lucila Bonilla | Online | August 24, 2023

Real activity growth in emerging markets (EMs) ex-China has been more resilient than we expected, despite very tight monetary policy. So far this year, we’ve increased our GDP forecasts in 15 large EMs. However, our Q2 nowcasts are indicating slowing momentum, particularly though investment weakness. We pencil a greater drag from past policy tightening on activity in 2024 that will contribute to easing core inflation momentum. This will allow most EMs to cut ahead of the Fed, with risks tilted to a faster normalisation.

China at the half-year mark: Is the glass half empty or half full?

with Lloyd Chan and Louise Loo | Online | August 16, 2023

The near-term macro outlook on China looks especially foggy. There’s more stimulus but not the ones we’re used to. More property weakness but a hard-landing still appears remote. New growth areas but the regulatory environment remains cautious. Join us as we discuss the implications of recent developments to our outlook.
