As per the forecast of the S&P Global, the ratings agency, this year, the sovereign debt’s global amount could hit “$50 trillion” in case another jump is observed in the governments’ burrowing. The predictions said that sovereign burrowing could equal to “$7.78 trillion this year”, whereby marking a hike of 3.2% on 2018.
 
In the words of Karen Vartapetov, a credit analyst at S&P Global Ratings:
“Some 70 percent, or $5.5 trillion, of sovereigns’ gross borrowing will be to refinance maturing long-term debt, resulting in an estimated net borrowing requirement of about $2.3 trillion, or 2.6 percent of the GDP of rated sovereigns”.
 
In case, the total of debt pile were to go up to “$50 trillion”, it would mark a 6% increment mover the last year’s figure with partly being “exacerbated” by swing of exchange rate.
