A World Rebalancing
2023 is likely to be another year out of equilibrium. Accumulating shocks from the COVID-19 virus pandemic and the Russia–Ukraine conflict are proving pervasive and persistent and are profoundly reorganizing global structures and relationships.
We see five key risk areas to watch for 2023: economic dissonance, reshuffling labor markets, supply chain stabilization, energy security and the energy transition ahead, and the global security environment. These tests are interconnected and have vast commercial impacts from trade protectionism to financial market volatility to civil unrest risk.
In this podcast episode, our experts provide a comprehensive analysis of the global economic, industry, and country risk prospects in the year ahead and give you timely insights for charting your organization’s course in 2023.

Top 10 economic predictions for 2023
Supply chain disruptions, persistent inflation and the removal of pandemic-related government support and accommodative monetary policy provided a challenging economic environment in 2022. After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the upheaval in processed materials and commodities markets – especially for energy – took those challenges to a new and more pernicious level. How will the global economy fare in 2023 as markets, firms and consumers continue to adjust to the confluence of these major headwinds?
S&P Global Market Intelligence economists reveal our top 10 predictions for the global economy in 2023, including the prospects for taming inflation, the extent of monetary policy tightening, and the likelihood of a global recession.

The secret ingredient for electric vehicles
Electrical steel is a niche product that is essential for making transformers, generators and electric motors. While it only constitutes about 1% of global steel production today, it is poised to grow exponentially along with the electric vehicle market. In 2022, about 9 million EVs will be produced globally.
