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

Future of Travel Keynotes, Auto, Rail, Aviation

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....

Future of Retail: $5 trillion global e-commerce sales by 2025. Impact on malls and traditional retail. How to create MAGIC. Futurist speaker Interview with Fortune Magazine (Greece), and video of futurist keynote on retail trends in Greece and globally

Future of Retail Keynote Speaker, e-commerce

Interview for Fortune Magazine (Greece) 21 February 2019 - Patrick Dixon gave a keynote on retail trends for Lamda Developments in Athens.

In many EU nations, 70% of all retail spending is already in just four or five retail chains, and across the EU as a whole, 50% of all food sales take place in just ten chains. National price wars will become regional price wars. Sales by chains in the EU will continue to grow fast – 25% growth over the last 14 years, but their retail floor space has grown at twice that rate, so their productivity has fallen

Global e-commerce sales will be $5 trillion by 2025, from more than $2.6 trillion in 2018, mostly on mobile devices. Amazon is now the world’s third largest retailer after companies like Wal-Mart, Carrefour and Tesco, with $232bn of sales a year.  Over 30% of all UK shopping apart from groceries is already online, growing at 10% a year, mostly via mobiles. E-commerce is growing at 30% a year in Asia. These are pointers to the future of Greek retail. In Greece, EU5bn is already spent online, mainly on shoes, clothes and electronic devices - over 3% of the entire economy, and 25% of this is bought on smartphones.
