Perspectives & forecasts for 42 countries up to 2040

Prognos Economic Outlook® (PEO®)


Eigene Publikation



In uncertain times, there is a growing demand for orientation. Prognos delivers answers to the big questions of the future. The Prognos Economic Outlook© (PEO) delivers independent figures. Based on our economic models we project the coming 25 years – for strategists and decision-makers in politics, business and society.

An indispensable database for strategists and decision-makers

PEO contains data and prognoses for 42 countries. Together, they encompass 90 % of the global gross domestic product. The data spans from 1995 to 2040.

400 variables per country

For every country, there are around 400 demographic and macroeconomic variables. They guarantee scientifically sound prognoses for strategists and decision-makers who are interested in the global economy or take part in the world market.

Always up-to-date

PEO data is constantly being updated. This way, you will always receive our analysts’ most recent figures. Additionally, once a year, you will receive our in-depth report, summarising our insights into the current state of affairs and the future of the world economy.
