IHS Markit estimates had shown world real GDP growth slowing from 3.2% in 2018 to 2.6% in 2019, an expected decrease in 2020, and then picking up again in 2021. The world growth rates in 2019 and 2020 for real GDP, trade volume and real value are below CAGR for the period 2005 - 18 which is indicative of a global slowdown. The stronger recovery is visible in forecasts for 2021. How has the outlook been impacted? What are other emerging trends in global trade?
