Chart of the week: Our forecast for world trade growth


Innes McFee

Managing Director of Macro and Investor Services

Our baseline forecast looks for world trade to grow by just 2.6% per year from 2020-2030, with trade volumes in 2030 around 5% lower than we expected in January. In addition, we expect the next decade to see the lowest ratio of trade growth to GDP growth in any decade since 1950.
