2 © 2014 IHS A gradual acceleration in the global economy Led by the United States, global growth is picking up. Improving household finances, strengthening private investment, and reduced fiscal drag will support the US expansion. After stalling last year, the Eurozone’s slow recovery will resume as the policy focus shifts from austerity to growth. A downturn in housing markets will restrain China’s growth. Growth paths in emerging markets will depend on structural reforms that raise productivity and allocate capital more efficiently. Financial markets are more resilient than a few years ago. Nevertheless, there is an abundance of geopolitical risks. 2 Global Consumer Markets Outlook / Q3 2014
