Demographic mega-trends of rapidly aging and shrinking populations are unfurling, most notably in Western Europe and East Asia. They are shaping rising geopolitical tensions, de-globalization, and a new world order of inward-looking nations and blocs. Meanwhile, war and climate change threaten mass migrations from Central America, Africa, and South Asia that could overwhelm boundaries, nation-states, and infrastructures.

The next decade will see a massive transfer of power and wealth from the departing boomers to young cohorts with very different habits and values.

Key Highlights

  • The 2022 UN World Population Prospects report predicts that Sub-Saharan Africa will become the world's most populous region in the late 2060s. In fact, between 2022 and 2050, the region's population is expected to almost double, exceeding two billion inhabitants by the late 2040s. This global reshuffle of the world's population will reconfigure migration pathways and policies as aging economies struggle to replenish their workforces.
  • History's biggest-ever transfer of wealth and power is underway as the so-called ‘boomers' retire and die, and the younger cohorts take over with very different experiences, assumptions, habits, and values. Cerulli Associates predicts that up to $68 trillion in assets will be transferred to younger generations within the next 25 years.
  • A study from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), found that an annual average of 21.5 million people were displaced due to weather-related events between 2008 and 2022. As the impacts of climate change become increasingly extreme, this number will grow significantly.
  • Aging populations and the increased buying power of millennials and Generation Z will see changes to product preferences across all consumer sub-sectors. As a result, companies' strengths across ESG, ecommerce, cybersecurity, online delivery, and robotics will shape their exposure to the demographic shift.
