Global Link Model

Quantify the impact of global economic change on your company’s performance – in under five minutes

The IHS Global Link Model is the most comprehensive global macroeconomic model commercially available. Designed for forecasting and scenario planning, it links 68 individual country models with each other and with key global drivers of performance. The model accounts for 95% of global GDP, covering more countries and time series – 250 to 500 per country – than any other market offering. With quarterly updated baseline forecasts and 30-year outlooks, you have all the data you need for current decisions as well as longer term planning. Our own economists and analysts use the model to produce their award-winning industry forecasts.

Designed to make scenario impact analysis accessible across your organization, the Global Link Model allows you to generate a scenario and calculate the impact in less than five minutes. Stress test your company portfolios under alternate scenarios and understand the effect of changes in commodity prices, exchange rates, monetary and financial policy, energy prices, demographics and more on your company’s performance.

  • Identify future opportunities and accurately size markets with scenario-based demand projections
  • Optimize your portfolio with a benchmark for ROI across different scenarios
  • Build business resiliency with scenario impact analysis across your value chain

The Global Link Model provides full access to the model, continued technical support, three detailed scenario assumptions per quarter, and an executive summary describing the output and context.
