10 EUROCONSTRUCT, June 2015 Macroeconomic outlook Global perspectives Global economic activity remained moderate in 2014, while business conditions continued to vary significantly across countries. Strong recovery was sustained in the United States, supported by expansionary monetary policy and a fading drag from fiscal tightening. In contrast, the Euro area economic growth remained sluggish, adversely affected by the structural problems faced by some member countries, such as persistently high debt levels and related decline in lending. The global economy remains on a gradual recovery path. The world economy grew by about 3.6% in 2014 (excluding the Euro area). In the latest Economic Outlook by ECB, the world real GDP is projected to increase over the projection horizon, rising from 3.8% in 2015 to slightly above 4% in the period The global outlook is being shaped by a number of supportive factors, including: a significant decline in oil prices, which should have an overall positive impact on the global economic activity, an ongoing sustained recovery and a robust outlook in the United States, expected diminishing of the unemployment rate. However, some adverse factors also exist, such as: the repercussions of the double shock economic sanctions and the fall in oil prices for the Russian economy; the sharp movements in financial markets, partly due to increasingly divergent monetary policies; and the disappointing growth rate of some emerging market economies of BRIICS (Brasil, Rusia, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa), leading to downward revisions of their potential growth. Reflecting the factors shaping the global outlook, the global recovery is characterised by uneven developments among both the advanced and emerging market economies. Advanced economies will continue to benefit from diminishing headwinds, including waning deleveraging, a moderating fiscal drag and improving situation on the labour markets, while unaddressed structural challenges and the tightening of financial conditions will still weigh on growth in emerging market economies.
