2014 is a year when world trade made a comeback. According to recent estimates, world trade in goods is poised to pick up to reach nearly 5 percent growth, more than doubling 2013 growth figures. Global trade in services – such as engineering, legal, technical, accounting, architecture, or any service where the provider is in one country and the buyer in another – continue robust growth.

This is great news after the 12 percent plunge in world trade in 2009 and the lackluster growth in trade over the past few years.

The long-term view is even better. HSBC projects that world trade in goods will grow 8 percent annually through 2030. This means that world trade will double between 2013 and 2022, and triple by 2028. Trade will yet again outpace global GDP growth, as it has over the past several years. In 1950-2005, world GDP grew about 5 times, but world trade grew 11 times! According to HSBC, 2016 is a major inflexion point: exports from advanced economies, particularly the United States, are set to expand very rapidly in 2016-2020.
