Global Demographic Forecasts Show A New World Order In 2050

The latest demographic forecasts from the United Nations point to a new picture of our planet in 2050.


According to The Economist:

The number of people will grow from 7.3 billion to 9.7 billion in 2050, 100m more than was estimated in the UN’s last report two years ago. More than half of this growth comes from Africa, where the population is set to double to 2.5 billion.

Nigeria’s population will reach 413m in 2050 and the country will be the world’s third most-populous, behind India and China.

Congo and Ethiopia will double their population to more than 195m and 188m and will be the world’s seventh and eighth most populous countries respectively.

India will take the lead as the world’s most populous country surpassing China already in 2022.

China’s population will peak at 1.4 billion in 2028 while India’s four decades later at 1.75 billion.

It’s forecast that by 2100 the planet’s population will be rising past 11.2 billion.
