According to Credit Suisse estimates, the number of global millionaires will exceed 87 million in 2026, i.e. a rise of 25 million from 2021.
This rapid rise reflects in part the fact that higher inflation will make it easier to pass the million US dollar threshold. While millionaire numbers in lower-income countries are still far below the levels in the United States or Europe, the numbers are expected to accelerate in the next five years.
