AI to drive GDP gains of $15.7 trillion with productivity, personalisation improvements
- Global GDP will be 14% higher in 2030 as a result of AI
- Productivity improvements are expected to account for half of all gains to 2030
- North America will experience productivity gains faster than China initially, driven by its readiness for AI and the high fraction of jobs that are susceptible to replacement by more-productive technologies.
- China will begin to pull ahead of the US’s AI productivity gains in ten years, after it catches up on a slower build up to the technology and expertise needed.
- Europe and Developed Asia will also experience significant economic gains from AI (9-12% of GDP in 2030)
- Developing countries will experience more modest increases (less than 6% of GDP) due to the much lower rates of adoption of AI technologies expected (including Latin America, Africa).
- Methodology: To estimate AI impact, our team conducted a dual-phased top-down and bottom-up analysis combining a detailed assessment of the current and future use of AI and an exploration of the economic impact in terms of new jobs, new products, and other secondary effects.
