A future giant electron-positron collider, operating at the energy frontier, is a natural proposal in order to push particle physics into new regime of precise measurements, in particular in the sectors of electroweak observables and Higgs boson parameters. The four projects of such accelerators: two linear (ILC and CLIC) and two circular (FCC and CEPC) are currently in various stages of development. In view of the update of European HEP strategy for particle physics and expectations of important decisions from Japan, China and USA, the next few years will be critical as far as the decisions about the construction of such colliders are concerned. The paper concisely reviews the relevant aspects and challenges of the proposed accelerators and detectors along with the presumed schedules of construction and operation. The motivation and very attractive physics program for new e+e− colliders, spanning in particular perspectives in Higgs, electroweak, and neutrino sectors, together with expectations of searches for New Physics, will be discussed as well.
