    • About 40 percent of the population of sub-Saharan Africa, or nearly 400 million people, live in urban areas. Over the next 25 years, that number is expected to double, increasing demand for new and better infrastructure in some of the world's poorest countries, according to Eurasia Group.
    • By 2025, Asia may boast more than 20 of the world's top 50 cities by gross domestic product (compared with just eight in 2007).

    • In Urban world: The shifting global business landscape, McKinsey argued that emerging markets are changing where and how the world does business. For the last three decades, they have been a source of low-cost but increasingly skilled labour. Their fast-growing cities are filled with millions of new and increasingly prosperous consumers, who provide a new growth market for global corporations at a time when much of the developed world faces slower growth as a result of ageing. But the number of large companies from the emerging world will rise, as well, according to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI). This powerful wave of new companies could profoundly alter long-established competitive dynamics around the world.
