  • Global Annual Review 2014:Demographic and social change by Norbert Winkeljohann
    2050 while Europe s is expected to shrink While these demographic changes bring risks for businesses that fail to respond adequately they also bring big opportunities for forward looking organisations We re finding that our clients are targeting two core sources of growth the consumption power of growing population segments and the innovative potential of a diverse workforce For example Nigeria s population should exceed America s by 2045 And with women in the G7 countries already controlling two thirds of the household budget the wage gap with men narrowing and an estimated 865 million women set to enter the economic mainstream in the coming decade women s purchasing power will continue to rise Another opportunity is global mobility The number of people being assigned by their employers to roles outside their home country has increased by 25 over the past decade and we project a further 50 rise by 2020 Put simply people are planning to move so there s an opportunity for companies to make their employment offers more attractive Across all these opportunities the common thread is the move to a more diverse world And there s growing evidence that workplace diversity is linked to improved performance by businesses and economies Innovative companies are already tapping into rising workforce diversity and it s a resource that s set to become ever richer However alongside the opportunities demographic change also brings challenges The absolute increase in global population is not in itself the biggest demographic challenge facing us all Instead it s the combination of rising life expectancy and in some parts of the world declining birth rates a combination that will drive dependency ratios upwards In 2050 the average age in Japan is set to be 53 against 21 in Nigeria Whichever side of this divide they

  • Global Annual Review 2014: Shift in global economic power by Silas Yang: PwC
    of some US 6 trillion by 2021 Such trends and tipping points mean the traditional way of classifying economies is becoming increasingly irrelevant This change is underlined by widening divergences within these groupings Italy s economy has not grown in real terms since 2000 while Canada s has expanded by over 30 China s economy has tripled in size while Mexico s has only grown by a third These huge economic shifts between countries and within groupings are resulting in momentous changes in consumption patterns which in turn are creating and amplifying key challenges for businesses worldwide They have to chase a moving target as consumers evolve differently in various markets faster than ever before They have to address the needs of ever more diverse and more demanding customer segments And they have to fight off increasingly intense and new competition It s no wonder that more than half of the business leaders interviewed in our latest Global CEO Survey are concerned about changes in consumer spending and behaviours and nearly half of all CEOs are worried about new market entrants The ongoing rebalancing of global economic power also brings major implications for investments in infrastructure Worldwide we estimate that annual spending on infrastructure will grow from US 4 trillion in 2012 to more than US 9 trillion by 2025 with a total of close to US 78 trillion expected to be spent globally between 2014 and 2025 The Asia Pacific market driven by China s growth will represent nearly 60 of global infrastructure spending by 2025 In contrast Western Europe s share will shrink to less than 10 from twice as much just a few years ago Such global shifts are remarkable not only for their scale but also for their sheer speed As a result there is no

  • Global Annual Review 2014: Rapid urbanisation by Ian Powell
    Every week some 1 5 million people join the urban population through a combination of migration and childbirth Inevitably this rapid expansion is putting cities infrastructure environment and social fabric under pressure Over the next decade New York Beijing Shanghai and London alone will need US 8 trillion in infrastructure investments The numbers living in urban slums have risen by a third since 1990 Cities occupy 0 5 of the world s surface but consume 75 of its resources Rapid urbanisation brings major implications for businesses as they refocus their offerings marketing and distribution towards an increasingly urban customer base with distinct needs and consumption habits And they must be alert to new opportunities arising from lifestyles shaped by rising population density and readier access to resources For city leaders the implications are also significant as they work to ensure that cities grow in a sustainable way Leaders face tough choices trying to keep their cities liveable Options being examined include floating cities especially relevant for low lying regions threatened by rising sea levels and revitalising ghost cities or failing economies through crowdfunding A further approach is to build a new city around the latest technologies the smart city From Masdar City in Abu Dhabi to Migaa near Nairobi spending on smart cities will hit US 1 trillion within two years However for these manufactured cities the financial environmental and social costs can outweigh the benefits from technology So another approach has emerged harnessing citizens own smartness by deploying the technology directly to them in order to keep cities growing and liveable Examples range from developing an energy self sufficient street in Austin Texas to pioneering groups of small production units in Barcelona PwC has been working on many projects including in India the Mumbai Smart Safe City Rapid urbanisation

  • Global Annual Review 2014: Climate change and resource scarcity by Dennis Nally
    resources to satisfy this demand are finite Just how finite is becoming increasingly clear At current rates of consumption we may have just half a century s worth of oil and gas left Yet to meet our development needs we re highly dependent on fossil fuels which in turn drive carbon emissions That s why we look set to miss the carbon target to keep temperature rises to 2 C by 2034 The impact of our economic development model is amplified by the linkage between climate change and resource scarcity Our resulting projection could lead to either of two extreme outcomes a policy shock with a global agreement that severely penalises carbon emissions or a climate or resource shock where a natural event causes massive environmental and economic damage Faced with these risks many people are looking to governments for solutions However in practice policy actions will remain unpredictable inconsistent and reactive So businesses must take the lead in mitigating environmental damage and tackling climate and resource challenges while simultaneously striving to make their organisations more agile and resilient If businesses are to rise to these challenges sustainability will be vital Corporate responsibility has evolved from a luxury to a business imperative Ultimately sustainability is the lens through which every business will be judged by its consumers workforce society and even investors And as businesses move to embrace sustainability they also need to be able to report on it in a credible and trustworthy way As a result an increasingly important area of focus for businesses worldwide is understanding measuring and reporting on the environmental and social impacts of the decisions and actions they take This need is driving the development of innovative ways of measuring and reporting more transparently and holistically on companies overall impacts Over time progress in

  • Global Annual Review 2014: Technology breakthroughs by Bob Moritz
    new technologies is falling equally rapidly since 2001 the cost of DNA sequencing per genome has plunged from US 96m to less than US 6 000 At the same time digitisation via the internet has created extraordinary value as exemplified by Google And social media is steadily strengthening its position as a dominant force in the day to day lives of people across the globe enabling many of the world s top brands to capitalise on it to deepen their relationships with customers Indeed the impacts of digital disruption are now so pervasive that no business in any sector from the smallest family business to the largest multinational is immune from them And the pace of technological advances hasn t slackened at all during the past year Far from it According to MIT Technology Review in 2014 alone we ve seen breakthroughs in technologies ranging from agricultural drones that enable higher crop yields to neuromorphic chips configured like human brains from microscale 3D printing of an ever wider range of products to agile robots that can walk or even run across uneven terrain and from ultra accurate big data enabled weather forecasts that will boost the contribution from renewable energy to genome editing that will help tackle previously baffling brain disorders All of these advances either help to solve complex problems or open up new ways of using technology or both And in each field the progress to date is just the start So what s next Over the next decade we think the transformative potential of digital for consumers will play out in three waves The First Digital Wave we ll see more and more companies adopt e commerce or add a web channel to their existing portfolio In this wave even fairly traditional organisations will make this move
