It added: Individual empowerment will accelerate substantially owing to poverty reduction and a huge growth of the global middle class.
For the first time, a majority of the worlds population will not be impoverished, and the middle classes will be the most important social and economic sector in the vast majority of countries around the world. Demand for consumer goods, including cars, (will) rise sharply with the growth of the middle class.
