Globally, 2014 will deliver a mixed bag of growth results. Countries like China are expected to slow, with stronger growth performance expected from the United States. Many emerging markets will also experience pressure due to capital outflows and depreciating currencies in the wake of possible monetary policy tapering in the United States. The situation in Europe is expected to brighten somewhat, with a positive growth trend expected in 2014 for the larger economies in the region, such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Italy. Managing global volatility and developing visibility into leading growth indicators continues to be the fundamental challenge for business.

The key to sustaining growth in many global regions is targeted investment into infrastructure to improve competitiveness. Various countries are attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) and governments globally are becoming increasingly vocal to attract FDI and private investment into their country.  To address these trends, Frost & Sullivan's regional leaders unite for this Analyst Briefing to elucidate their views on developments that will shape global markets in 2014.

Reasons to attend this Analyst Briefing:

  • Understand which countries or industries will most likely continue to drive growth in 2014
  • Identify regional growth drivers and what distinguishes these drivers in various regions
  • Gain insight into expert opinions on markets beyond BRICS and the changing global growth dynamic
  • Understand the dangers of relying on broad-based growth projections versus the data that matters

This Analyst Briefing will be valuable for anyone involved in strategy, business planning, marketing and business development. Frost & Sullivan will also provide perspectives on how to leverage the "Global Economic Tracker-Insights and Trends" package from the Emerging Markets Innovation group to help corporations to better plan and deliver on growth objectives.

"The International Monetary Fund and other global institutions are generally focused on economic variables and undertake no serious political analysis," said Frost & Sullivan Chief Economist Dr. Vinnie Aggarwal.  "Failure to predict growth accurately on a global or regional basis should hardly come as a surprise. Rather than simply focusing on aggregate global or regional predictions, we argue that it is crucial to supplement such forecasts with greater attention to both an economic, sectoral approach and to ongoing quarterly analysis of growth conditions."
