About KPMG’s CEO Outlook

The 8th edition of KPMG CEO Outlook, conducted with 1,325 CEOs of which 125 were from India, between 12 July and 24 August 2022, provides unique insights into the mindset, strategies and planning tactics of CEOs not only comparable to pre-pandemic to today, but also from KPMG’s CEO Pulse Survey conducted with 500 CEOs, of which 50 were from India, between 12 January and 9 February 2022, before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

All respondents have annual revenues of over USD500 million and a third of the companies surveyed have more than USD10 billion in annual revenue. The survey included leaders from 11 key markets (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, the UK and the US) and 11 key industry sectors (asset management, automotive, banking, consumer and retail, energy, infrastructure, insurance, life sciences, manufacturing, technology, and telecommunications).

NOTE: some figures may not add up to 100 per cent due to rounding.
