The economic landscape is changing, with the world’s urban centre continuing to shift Eastwards. Aggregate GDP of Chinese cities covered in the report will overtake the largest cities in Europe and North America by 2017 and 2022 respectively. Nine additional Chinese cities will join the world’s top 100 ranked by real GDP in 2030, with 13 cities from North America and Europe dropping out. Despite this shift, the top five largest city economies in 2030 will remain unchanged from today.
The data and forecasts in this report are drawn from Oxford Economics’ global cities services. This comprehensive set of forecast databanks covers nearly 3,000 cities and regions, with comprehensive data for Europe, North America, Latin America, China, Asia, and Africa and the Middle East.
This report summarises key findings from our most recent round of forecasts, identifying some of the fastest growing cities in each part of the world, and also which of the largest cities seem set to perform best (and worst).
