Will UK GDP overtake Germany?
A study, published by Statista, forecasts British GDP to grow by 1.65 percent in 2023. The US is forecast for 1.39 percent growth for the same period, followed by Germany on 1.21 percent.
Will the UK ever overtake Germany?
Britain will overtake Germany to become the largest economy in Europe by 2050, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is predicting.

A region’s biggest economy attracts people and investment. Every multinational will want a stake in the British market. Migrants will flock here in even greater numbers.
Will the UK’s population gap with Germany ever close?

Is Germany’s economy fated to fail?

Will France’s economy overtake Germany by 2040?

The state-sponsored French Economic Observatory recently published a paper on these changing demographics, forecasting that the French economy would overtake Germany by 2040. That’s very likely. But as you might expect, the French study left Britain out of the equation.
