The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub), working with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Boston Consulting Group (BCG), conducted a scenario-planning exercise to understand how a collection of 25 transformative trends—megatrends—could reshape the infrastructure industry in the future. The exercise involved surveying more than 400 practitioners across 70 countries on the certainty of direction, scale of impact and level of preparedness for the megatrends. The output of this exercise resulted in three scenarios and a set of implications for the infrastructure industry.
