Global
megatrends

In 2050, the global urban population is expected to reach 6.3 billion (1.8 times more than the current population); accordingly, we will need twice the resources that the Earth can supply. NEC has classified the social and global changes to expect in the next ten years into six megatrends.

Based on these six megatrends, NEC has devised The seven themes for social value creation, which are embodied in our Solutions for Society. Through co-creation with customers and partners, we work on these themes to realize secure, safe, efficient, and equal societies.
