Food And Energy Supply Chain Disruptions To Blame For Runaway Inflation

  • Energy and food supply chain disruptions have pushed inflation rates higher across the globe.
  • Global growth expectations are faltering, prompting fears of stagflation.
  • 95 countries – from the developed and the developing world - are projected to see inflation above 5 percent but below 10 percent.

The International Monetary Fund has said that it expects inflation pressures to be significant around the world throughout 2022.

In fact, as Statista's Katharina Buchholz reports, inflation is predicted to be worse in developing economies, where price increases are projected to reach 9.9 percent on average over the course of this year. In developed nations, this number was put at 7.2 percent by the IMF.

After the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February, the organization revised its inflation projections upwards – by 3.3 percent for developed countries and 4 percent for developing nations.

This shows that even before the war in Ukraine disrupted global energy and food supplies, inflation projections had already been quite high as supply chains overstretched by restocking needs after the end of major Covid-19 lockdowns had already caused inflation to rise to levels not seen since the aftermath of the Great Recession.

Worse still, global growth expectations are faltering fast, prompting fears of global stagflation...

Countries experiencing conflict, upheaval or major economic problems in 2022 are expected to see inflation rates far above the global average of 8.8 percent. Among them are Venezuela, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Turkey and Argentina.

95 countries – from the developed and the developing world - are projected to see inflation above 5 percent but below 10 percent.

This is more than the around 80, which are expected to keep inflation at or below the 5-percent mark.
