World by Country Population Projections to 2050

.. updated world population estimates and projections by country show that the world population is projected to grow from 6.9 billion in 2010 to 9.4 billion by 2050, an increase of 2.5 billion (36.5%). This section summarizes access to tools to view, compare, analyze these projections, develop alternative scenario projections, and examine underlying data used to develop the projections. Assess the implications of changing geopolitical, demographic and economic factors and how they might impact future change for areas and matters of interest. See more about these data and alternative scenario projections and impact assessment.  See related main Web section.

Future of India: Trends & Age-Cohort Analysis

The population of India is projected to change from 1.17 billion in 2010 to 1.66 billion in 2050, an increase of 483.5 million or 41.2%. How will India age-cohort patterns in 2010 compare to those projected for 2050? How do these patterns compare with those of the United States; other countries? See related Future of India Web page

This section illustrates use of population pyramids to examine age by gender demographic patterns for India as of 2010 and 2050. Similar population pyramids can be developed for any country. Population pyramids help us visualize and more easily understand age-gender structure — and how it is changing over time.

As shown in the graphic below, the population of India is projected to be the largest of any country in 2050. See related interactive table with world by countypopulation projections.

Population Pyramids
Population pyramids are bar-chart graphical depictions of the population size by gender by age group. They help us understand the implications of male-female population size by age and what that might suggest for the future.

A top-heavy pyramid suggests negative population growth that might be due to many factors, including high death rates, low birthrates and increased emigration. A bottom-heavy pyramid suggests high birthrates, falling or stable death rates and potential for rapid population growth.

The population pyramid shows a male population bar chart (left side of pyramid, blue) symmetrically with a female population bar chart (right side of pyramid, light red). Each bar shows the population by 5-year age group, 0-4 years to 80-84 years and 85 years and over.
