About 2,000 CEOs think their companies won't make money in the next 10

A large number of CEOs from all over the world think that their companies are in trouble.

About 2,000 CEOs surveyed by consulting firm PwC say their company will not be "economically viable" within the next decade

This is almost 40% of the total number of CEOs surveyed in 105 countries for PwC's annual global CEO survey.

They are concerned for a number of reasons. More than half of CEOs surveyed cited changes in consumer demand, regulatory changes and labor shortages as challenges to their profitability over the next 10 years.

Forty-nine percent are worried about technologies like artificial intelligence, 43% said supply chain disruptions will continue to be a threat, and nearly a third are worried about competitors from outside industries entering their field .

The PêC report cited "climate change, technological disruption, demographic shifts, a fractured world and social instability" as additional "megatrends" that could reshape businesses in the coming years.

US CEOs were more optimistic about their long-term business models, while business leaders in Japan and China were less optimistic. And despite the concerns, the majority of company executives surveyed - 60% - are not planning any layoffs, at least over the next 12 months.
