The ITF Transport Outlook provides an overview of recent trends and near-term prospects for the transport sector at a global level, as well as long-term prospects for transport demand to 2050, for freight (maritime, air and surface), passenger transport (car, rail and air) and CO2 emissions. This edition looks at how the main policy, economic and technological changes since 2015, along with other international developments (such as the Sustainable Development Goals), are shaping the future of mobility, and presents alternative policy scenarios for long-term trends in transport demand and CO2 emissions from all transport modes, freight and passenger. A special focus on accessibility in cities also highlights the role of policies in shaping sustainable transport systems that provide equal access to all.




International Transport Forum

For the first time, the ITF Transport Outlook assembles scenarios for future transport demand and related CO2 emissions from all sectors and modes of transport. Starting from long-term projections produced by the OECD as well as non-OECD bodies, it analyses how socio-economic changes will affect the demand for transport under different policy scenarios. Several key trends emerge from these, such as the intensifying shift in transport activity towards developing economies, with Asian countries representing an ever increasing share of total transport demand for both freight and passengers.
