How China will dominate the world, and why most business leaders are blind to China's impact. Future of China, economy, trade, manufacturing, consumers, retail, e-commerce, military and security

By 2040 China will dominate almost all global markets. Most business and government leaders are blind to China's gigantic future impact. China already has the world’s largest banking assets of $42 trillion, and China is the world’s largest economy when measured by Purchasing Power Parity, which takes into account how much the same basic items cost in each nation. China is the world's largest manufacturer, the largest exporter, the fastest growing consumer market. China is the world leader in digital innovation, high-speed rail and green tech. China generates 40% of all global e-commerce transactions, and files more patents than any other nation. Mandarin is the most common first language spoken by 800 million web users, and China is the world’s largest e-commerce market with 40% of global share.  Chinese people will spend which $1.8 trillion online by 2022....

3 billion more cars on the roads. Future of the Auto Industry - robot drivers, next-generation electric vehicles, fuels, shared ownership, flying cars, traffic management, road infrastructure, smart cities - keynote speaker

More than 1 billion cars are on the roads today. But we would need to see that rise to 4 billion for the whole world to have the same level of car ownership as America. By then, almost all of them will be electric powered, and the majority driven entirely or assisted by robots. Inevitably, roads will be very congested, especially in city centres, many of which will ban private vehicles most or all of the time by 2030. Most new car owners will be in emerging markets over the next 50 years. Chinese people are driving 230 million cars, most than any other nation, 8% owned by 40,000 car rental companies. Private car ownership in China jumped from 1% to 21% from 2002 to 2019, with more than 24 million new cars now sold a year....

The truth about Chinese Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the illness COVID-19: wider picture of new mutant viruses. Greatest risk is spread in low-income African nations with few resources to prevent explosive growth of infections

12th February 2020

Repeated warnings about mutant flu / new viruses like SARS-CoV-2 - wider long term picture

At a time of panic in some communities, here is a common sense view. I am writing as a physician and trends analyst who has been involved in the fight against HIV (another mutant virus) for over three decades. Since 1987 I have been predicting the great vulnerability of our world to new mutant viruses or mutations of existing ones, in my book The Truth about AIDS, in Futurewise published in 1998, and in The Future of Almost Everything published in 2015/2019...

How to get timing right in business - new products and services.Innovation. Futurist keynote speaker - VIDEO

Most board room debates about future are not usually about what is going to happen - longer term industry trends are usually fairly obvious and well understood by business leaders. The most important issue is often timing. By WHEN will most new cars sold in Europe be electric powered. BY WHEN will use of cash start to fall in America. Timing is everything. And timing / trends are hugely influenced by customer mood, emotion, soft factors which change customer behaviour. You can have the best Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data analytics, cloud computing, astonishing innovation in the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Manufacturing 4.0, robotics and automation - but real progress can be surprisingly slower or faster than you expect.

Sustainable energy in cities: Green Tech - Combined Heat and Power (CHP) vital role. Keynote Speaker - VIDEO

Huge importance of CHP Combined Heat and Power for sustainable heating in cities. Large scale, efficient, integrating multiple energy sources ranging from gas to solar, wind, biomass, heat pumps and so on. Comments on visit to Brussels after giving keynote to Euroheat and Power in France recently. Huge challenge in meeting carbon emission targets and reducing threat from climate change / global warming. Decarbonising energy production is relatively easy - converting power generation from coal to gas, adding solar and wind etc. But heating homes is heavily dependent on gas boilers today in most nations. Here are ways to make that far more efficient, but it requires scale, government action, district planning and a long range view of what is best for our planet.
