The BRICS Influence on the World Economy and Their Importance to the Adhesive & Sealant Industry

SpecialChem / Monique von Dungen & David P Nick – Dec 5, 2012

The "BRICS" include the countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. What started as a selection of countries with similar characteristics has now grown into a trading alliance that is setting a precedent for a new economic order that can potentially become a bigger influence on the world economy than the EU and USA combined. Perhaps most significant is the ability to bypass trading in U.S. dollar/Euro currencies. Collectively, the BRICS group represents 43% of the world's population, 20 % of the global GDP and 38% of the world adhesive and sealant demand. Unscathed by the current world economic recession, real GDP growth is expected to be in the range of 4-4.5% for at least the next 5 years. There is every indication that the BRICS will lead the world's economy within less than 10 years.
