Economic scenarios

Improve your line of sight

Deloitte Access Economics can help you navigate uncertainty by informing you of what the future could hold.

Our forecasting capability is based on a macroeconomic model of the Australian economy and is used to navigate uncertainty by recognising emerging and established macroeconomic risks and opportunities. It brings data driven insights and regulatory-based scenarios together with cutting edge strategic approaches and Deloitte's deep industry expertise - and simplifies them so you can understand the possible impact on your business.

We use a large data set of Australian economic and industry forecasts to produce forecasts that cover a range of time frames, industry variables and scenarios. It is used by some of Australia's prominent institutions with clients representing a cross section of the economy including construction, banking, retail and the government sectors.

Our unique assets and capabilities can support a range of strategic business activities along with tailored solutions to navigate uncertainty.

Some questions our economic scenarios can help you consider
  • What might happen here in Australia to our economy, wages, prices, interest and exchange rates, industries and states, profits and job markets if Asia’s middle class meets its potential over the next two decades?
  • What if China stumbles?
  • What if Australia’s already stretched housing prices were to take a tumble? How would that play out through the rest of the economy – sector-by-sector?
  • What if the Australian dollar soars or slumps?
  • What if interest rates fall further or rise higher?
