Urbanisation creates increasing pressure to plan for, and accommodate, a more dense population. By 2030, over 60 per cent of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas. (1)
The ageing population requires different housing solutions and greater healthcare support services in all of our major markets. Internationally, people aged 60+ will grow the most in number between 2015 and 2050. (2)
Urbanisation and population growth are driving the need for improved productivity, creating strong demand for infrastructure at both the social and economic levels. Worldwide, infrastructure spending is expected to grow from US$4 trillion per year in 2012 to more than US$9 trillion per year by 2025. (3)
Global assets under management are forecast to rise to US$102 trillion by 2020, up from US$64 trillion in 2012. (4)
