Global Economic Overview

The global economy showed exceptional resilience, as evidenced by robust labour markets, substantial household consumption and business investments. The year 2022 brought along some tough winds, impacting the global economy’s overall growth run. But despite all the challenges, it could not derail the economy from its growth trajectory and even showed optimism in the latter half of the year. According to the International Monetary Fund’s World Economic Outlook, published in April 2023, the global economy grew by 3.4% in 2022. Governments across the globe, responding to the challenges encountered by the world economy, implemented tighter monetary policies and structural reforms. They increased government spending to stimulate economic activities and improve the economy’s outlook. Thus, helping create a more stable and prosperous global economic environment.

After the Covid-19 pandemic, the world economy saw a rapid recovery in economic activity, which was soon over shadowed by rising inflationary pressures that persisted through the first half of 2022. According to IMF World Economic Outlook, April 2023, the estimated real GDP growth figures for the advanced economy are 2.7% in 2022 and 1.3% in 2023. The estimated figures for emerging economies are anticipated to be 4.0% for 2022 and 3.9% for 2023. But with stricter monetary and financial policies on board, the global economy has gradually started to witness subdued inflationary risks from 2022 onwards. According to IMF, global inflation is estimated to decline from 8.7% in 2022 to 7.0% in 2023, and to 4.9% by 2024. This forecast indicates the positive impact of the policies implemented to counter the rising inflationary pressures and reflects the overall stability of the global economy.


The year 2022 saw price volatility and inflation as the prime cause of concern globally for the economy and policy makers alike. Looking ahead into 2023, we anticipate the economic outlook to maintain a moderate stance, much like 2022, with an estimation of 2.8% growth. In this challenging external environment, contractionary monetary policies will likely continue to be implemented, while fiscal policies are expected to alleviate cost-of-living pressures, in line with the adhered monetary policies.


Indian economy has distinguished itself as the fastest-growing entity among major economies. In the first half of 2022-23, the country achieved a robust growth of 9.7% according to the Monthly Economic Review, November 2022 by the Department of Economic Affairs. A sharp rebound of economic activities, especially the private sector consumption and increased Government thrust on uplifting infrastructure, helped India sustain to steady growth momentum.

In the first quarter of 2022-23, persistent inflationary pressure compelled the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to recalibrate its monetary policies. As a result, the Indian economy has started to experience the easing of the inflationary grip while the inflation stood moderate during the third quarter. This transformation in the economy is aiding the demand scenario in the domestic market and enabling the country’s economic wheel to roll in a geared momentum. The adoption of calibrated monetary policies aimed at controlling inflation, coupled with steady growth in service activity, boosted demand and increased consumption. Due to the higher inflationary pressure on food prices, retail inflation saw a three-month high in January 2023. Previously retail inflation was led by a 12-month low in December 2022 at 5.72%, which went beyond the 6% tolerance band in January 2023.
