Commodity Market Projection 2022
The global economy projected to grow 4.5% in 2022
This projection reflects a slowdown in the pace of recovery for several advanced economies, one of which is due to supply disruptions. Meanwhile, for low-income developing countries, the rate of recovery is low due to new variants and limited space for movement.
Inflation is expected to return to pre-health crisis levels by mid-2022 globally.
Sustained rising inflation in developed countries could disrupt financial markets. Meanwhile, emerging markets and developing economies will be greatly affected by the spillover effects generated by capital outflows and exchange rate depreciation.
The labor force participation rate could increase in 2022, driven by stronger business capital spending and expanded job creation. However, improvements may be slow.
Energy prices that spiked in Q3 2021, are expected to remain high in 2022. Crude oil prices are projected to rise to $74 per barrel in 2022 as demand for oil strengthens.
