Recently, an article on the ten most populous countries was released. It was based on the years 2019 and 2100. Let’s take a closer look at it.
In 2019, China was the largest in terms of population(1439 million). India was not too far behind with 1380 million people. However, by 2100 it is estimated that India would claim the top spot(1551 million), as the East Asian countries are facing a massive decline in population. Nigeria is the country predicted to make the biggest strides in its rise to claim the third spot. The United States of America will add about 100 million people to its current tally(331 million). However, that won’t prevent its descent to fourth in the population table. Pakistan is the only nation that will retain its place in the standings. Brazil will tumble down the charts into tenth as it faces negative growth. Countries like Russia, Bangladesh and Mexico will drop out of the table. Interestingly, the new entrants will be solely from Africa. The Democratic Republic of Congo will be the Nation with the most population(296 million) out of the new boys.
In conclusion, we can say that the global population will keep on rising. The continent of Africa will be among the biggest contributors. Europe will not have a single representative in 2100.
